Dunfermline Golf Club
The Dunfermline Golf Club was founded in 1887 and is much travelled. The present club is no less than the club's 4th home! Happily though, the days of wandering are over and the club has been settled here at Pitfirrane since 1953. This is no bad thing for the estate provides both a wonderfully historic clubhouse and a very fine golfing landscape.
The course architect was J.R. Stutt and he made an excellent job of it. Five par 5's and five par 3's is quite an unusual combination but it gives the course great variation in length from hole to hole and it must be said that the par 3's are all exquisite.
A number of fine dog-legs also add interest. They mostly favour a fade and the 6th and 7th are lovely examples.
This mature and gently undulating parkland layout is indeed a fine test of golf and one of which the members can be justly proud. A large putting green and chipping area are available to give you some idea of how the course will play. Some of the larger greens will require good feel and judgement of pace to keep a tidy scorecard.
