I thoroughly enjoyed a round at Lundin on Sunday and managed to dodge the rain too. Martin Laird was out there as well tuning up for the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart, which gives you an idea of the quality of the course here.
From the clubhouse, the pro shop and first tee you have fantastic views up the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh and across to East Lothian, and the high points on the course, particularly the 14th tee, provide even better vantage points.
The holes along the shore were my favourites, especially the 4th and then the short 5th. Playing through the centre of the course there is some internal out of bounds, which caught me out, but just one of the challenges here. Very welcoming and superbly conditioned, highly recommended.
Lundin was the second venue on our annual MAGI golf tour to Scotland from Matlock GC, now in our seventh year. As the ex-pat Scottish organiser I always worry that my selection - based on golfing memories 25+ years old - may prove faulty. However Lundin did not let me down. It was just as I remembered it: a magnificent links icon in beautiful condition that challenges and delights in equal measure. The wind is what makes Lundin tough and by the end of the day, after 36 holes, the best score in our group was only 37 points and we were all happy but exhausted. The first four holes especially - playing into the prevailing westerly - can sap your strength and ruin your card. But there was sunshine, the panorama of the shore and the superb layout and condition of a 'class' course to balance any individual troubles.
The club is well equipped for visitors with a dedicated locker room. The staff and members are welcoming and rightly proud of their course, keen to hear visitors' views.
By all means play St Andrews, but don't miss Lundin.
Great variety for a links course, with some elevation changes, some trees, and of course gorse and some tight holes near the ocean. first and 18th i believe shared the same fairway which was interesting. Good test - would recommend.
Played on May 19th, 2008 on a bright sunny day with a cold breeze from the sea blowing. We were very heartly welcome by the pro who offered us tourists a couple of tips how to handle the course. Changing rooms are excellent, many clubs could take an example from. Fairways and greens were in superb condition. Very nice bar in the clubhouse with good food - we only ate toasties - and a fine pint of Guinness!
I can only recommend this course
Played here early September 2006.This one of the best courses in the Kingdom of Fife, a real test of golf. Superb greens and quick. Friedly reception. We didn't eat there so I cannot comment on the food. We will definately go back.
Played Lundin Links on a windy but sunny day in October 03, what a great course with stunning views of the Firth of Forth. Buy a stroke saver at the Pro shop as there are plenty of blind shots.
Lundin is a truly fantastic course with some of the best views around and was in superb condition. The club website gives a superb course tour so I'll just allude to my highlights. The 14th (Perfection) is the most amazing par 3. As you walk up to the 14th tee from the 13th green all you can see is Sky above the tee but when you get onto the tee - Wow - You can see the entire course from there aswell as it being one of the best Par 3's around. Go and enjoy this absolute gem.
Competed in the May 2003 Open. Got an early tee time of 8.00 am and our three ball arrived back at the eighteenth
right on noon. We were lucky that we had such a glorious
day to play the course as there is no hiding place out there if the wind decided to blow.
It was a real pleasure to play such a lovely, well maintained course. Not too long, very fair and not as punishing as its next door neighbour Leven if you stray from most of the fairways (or maybe I just had a very bad nightmare of a round when I played the Leven Open last year!).
The holes in the middle of the round which take you away from the coast up the hill do not detract at all from the enjoyment of playing the course - if anything, it whets the appetite for the finishing holes back to the clubhouse.
This is a fine example of an old fashioned links with a very relaxed atmosphere where you'll love every minute of your experience from arrival to departure.
Will definitely be applying for next year's Open.
Start along the seaside and continue up hill, with great views, beautiful homes and terrific golf holes. Lundin is a gem. The few parkland holes add to the beauty of the links holes and keep you on your toes (which is not good for swinging a golf club) Play this course, you'll love it.
Lundin is a fantastic course especially with the wind up which is how I played it. It has something for everyone including some parkland holes that were added after Lundin and Leven divided into 2 clubs. One of the most underrated courses in Scotland!
Lundin is one of the finest courses anywhere in the world. It has a stunning mix of links and woodland golf and also has the best group of par three's I've ever played (and not one of them is a 200 yard monster!). The greens are superb and the fairways almost as good, the rough is punishing but that's as it should be!
The clubhouse is well appointed and inviting and the members are welcoming and friendly.
All in all I cannot recommend Lundin highly enough.
If the prevailing wind from the west blows hard, Lundin must have some of the hardest starting holes around. Hang in there it gets easier! Overall the course is in great condition and certainly makes you think about where you play your shots.
I played 36 holes, and found the course challenging in the wind, but the course rewarded intelligent golf. Impressive views, and depending on the wind, some reachable par 5s and some impossible par 4's! Well maintained course, and very friendly proshop. Recommended!
