Golf in Fife does not start and end in St Andrews. Although the Old Course rightly grabs the headlines in any Fife golf couse guide, and is joined by many other wonderful courses at the Home of Golf, the Kingdom of Fife has a lot more to offer its many golfing visitors.
Entering Fife from the Forth Road Bridge golfers should visit Aberdour, a course that enjoys fabulous views of the Firth. On the banks of Loch Leven the two layouts at Kinross are enjoyable parkland courses.
