The thing that strikes you about golf in Scotland is that the clubs appreciate the history of the game. Leven is no exception and this course is amongst the best kept I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Links land is notoriously difficult to present but Leven is not only pleasing on the eye but also affords you genuine respect. By this I mean the course allows you to play your game with no premeditated nasty surprises; that said it is ready and waiting to catch you out. The 18th is a stunning finishing hole, a fitting end to a delightful course.
