Golf in Fife
Fife, The Home of Golf, is a must-visit destination for every golfer. Fife is only a 30 minutes drive from Edinburgh Airport and is home to more than 40 excellent golf clubs. Many of the Fife golf courses were founded before 1900, but Fife is also home to some very new golf courses, like Dumbarnie Links which opened in 2020. When visiting Fife for a golf break, you have to visit St Andrews Links. If you are not able to play the Old Course, then at least try one of the other six courses of St Andrews. Other top Fife golf courses are: Kingsbarns Golf Links, Crail Golfing Society, Leven Links Golf Club and Fairmont St Andrews. The best golf courses in Fife are located around St Andrews and Leven. When in Fife and you want a break from golf - something we can't really imagine - then discover the ancient castles, explore golden beaches, learn about the history of whisky or swim with sharks! If you're flying in, you can choose from airports at Edinburgh to the south, Glasgow to the west or Dundee to the north. Edinburgh Airport is less than 30 minutes away so you'll be in Fife in no time. Dundee Airport is even closer and also has excellent road and rail links into Fife.

St. Andrews Links
Vandaag de afsluiter van een vier daags weekendje golfen op de old course. Van te voren eerst even warm geslagen op de oefenfaciliteiten wat al een ervaring op zich was. De ballen kwamen automatisch op het teetje! Vervolgens richting eerste tee om ons bij de starter te melden. De caddies stonden al klaar, geweldige mannen met jaren en jaren ervaring. Deze ervaring bleek…

What to say: playing the Old Course is "the experience" for every golfer. And to do so, it is worth waking up at 3.30 a.m. and standing in line from 4.00 a.m.! Finally teed off at 6.30 a.m. with my caddy carrying the bag. What a day... can't wait to go back. Course is probably not the most difficult with no wind, but who cares!

Vreemd uitgedos…

St. Andrews Links
Vandaag de st Andrews Catle course gespeeld, na Kingsbarns van gisteren haast lastig om te beoordelen. Ontvangst was wederom perfect caddiemaster gooit de tassen op de trolley zodat we op de driving range konden warm slaan. Na wat oefenputts heeft de starter ons al gevonden en kunnen we de baan in. De baan zelf speelde met een beetje wind. Geen echte zee wind maar toch …
