Speaking as a 5-handicap golfer who plays 90% links golf I feel I have an idea of what a good links test should be. Just like Kilspindie sneaking into 4 balls Craigielaw just earns 5 balls. I also thank you for your assertion that it is "something I know nothing about" - I do not claim to be a golf pro or course architect but it is my opinion (as a decent-standard golfer who plays a lot of links golf) that the golf course fails in the regard that good shots are simply not rewarded at many of the holes. So having ALL the white tees at the fixed blue tee markers was a very unwelcome surprise: the course is simply to short from the blue markers. It is a policy I expect on a resort course in Spain, not on a proper links course in Scotland. 2 people found this review helpful The best way I can describe them is that it is like hitting the ball onto a concrete surface where the chances of holding the green are nigh on impossible on quite a number of holes.

I would of thought a lining probably should have been incorporated in it in the alteration, but I am just one guy.While people may be able to pick faults here and there, there is no denying that the difference in the condition and quality of the course has improved so vastly it really is hard to pick fault at these areas as there has clearly been a lot of work done to improve the condition of the course as it is. The gorse added colour and the rough was manageable and you are unlikely to lose too many balls if you have a wayward day. Incorporate some meandering burns and some ancient stone dykes into the design and you have a layout to find favour with the most hard-to-please golf purist; full of character, true to links traditions and presenting as strong an examination as any in the area. An excellent opening hole that got me confidently aiming up what felt like left of the target (something I often don’t commit to when required in a howling cross breeze and float it miles away) due to the tee box angle compared to fairway. At several points in the round the course touches the border of neighbouring Kilspindie. I played this course for the 6th time last week.

Measuring 6,601 yards with a par of 71, the inward half is nearly four hundred yards longer than the front nine with a very strong string of holes starting from the downhill, 540-yard, par five, 11th named “Quarry Park” and ending at the 467-yard, long par four, 16th entitled “Kirk Park.” If anything near the combined par of 25 for these six holes is scored then a very good round must have ensued! the Greens have a lot more definition between them and the aprons with a crisp edge.There is also a noticeable difference in the condition of some areas. It boasts an ultra modern clubhouse with panoramic views across the water to the Fife coast – don’t be surprised to find a large number of non-golfers in the lounge or courtyard as the clubhouse now plays a large part in the social fabric of the nearby village. It plays a moderate 6600 from the tips which are unlikely to be the tee of the day. 1 person found this review helpful However, saying it is the "failing" as you put it, of the green keeping staff and course designer's for all of that, clearly shows the ignorance that you have as a golfer, good round or not, if the course is not to your taste you cannot say that it is a failing when it is something you have no idea about, considering the course was designed by Donald Steele, a world renowned golf course architect, I reckon he would know more than you about the matter and have a good idea what the original intentions of the designs were.

The greens as a whole are also so much truer, less bumpy and less patchy and run at a fair and consistent speed from green to green, they are one of the most noticeable advances in quality that I have seen.Additionally there seems to be interesting changes made around certain bunkers making them features like growing a portion of rough round certain ones like 15th and 16th fairway, catching the ball but also making it look a bit different from just bunkers sitting there. The fairways were browned off and playing with lots of bounce and run. I agree with most of your comments, especially on the greens being upturned saucer design and well-guarded with bunkers making the greens difficult to play on and get too, and it isn't classic links that's for sure, but it wasn't meant to be as I'd imagine if it was trying to be a links then the first thing that would be done would be to put flat greens, so it’s clearly a hybrid trying to separate itself from the surrounding courses.

There are also a number of stone walls across parts of the fairways and the rough so that an errant drive is punished accordingly. Sure they are built on higher ground but that just means it questions your ability to bump ‘n run it to the green rather than through the air. As well as the 18th being changed with a big section of rough grown in from both sides at the fairway bunkers making it separate the fairway which nice change up for the last quarter of the last hole to the course. The second comment I like to make, is that the course is relatively short, especially on a calm day. The old wall running throughout the course comes into play numerous times and was well used.

I think that the course is better established than Craighead due to more natural bunkering and more varied ground, but similarly suffers a little from many holes being somewhat "samey", which will hopefully diminish as the course ages.The "stockbroker stadium" feeling on the otherwise very good par 3 10th hole is bizarre, as noted by other reviewers.We finished with very good golf club food in a nice open air courtard before heading back to our digs. First of all, the course layout is a bit underwhelming: the design of the holes are a bit dull, except the green complexes. In general, even if I dislike a course I can normally think of a reason that I might go back, however, in this case there are just so many better alternatives in the surrounding area that I am struggling to think of a reason to return.
