The Golf Club

Burntisland, an 18-hole parkland course @5995 yards, par 70, is set above the coastal fringe, and was designed by the legendary Willie Park Junior of Musselburgh fame-Twice Open Champion and " the Man who took Golf to the World" - on the recommendation of no less a golfer than Old Tom Morris himself.

As Old Tom reported " I went over the ground at High Bents and my opinion is that it would make a first class golf course" Our predecessors did precisely that! James Braid also made some alterations in 1922 - so we have pedigree. A few minor changes and re-sited bunkers to suit changing conditions have been introduced since then, but the course still reflects the basic design. The first 9 holes opened in Autumn 1897 and the full course on 1 May 1898.
