Fife Golfing Association provides administration services to more than 50 clubs playing over 44 courses in an area that’s bounded by the Firth of Tay to the north and Firth of Forth to the south, with inland boundaries to Perth & Kinross and Clackmannanshire.
Amazingly for a region so steeped in the game, Fife’s 6-man Gents amateur team had never won the Scottish Area Team Championships (inaugurated in 1977) until May 2011 when they defeated holders North East at Prestwick.
At Fife’s golfing epicentre lies St. Andrews, famed the world over as the Home of Golf, and it’s here that the Links Trust manages seven courses in and around the “Auld Grey Toon.” The area is synonymous with links golf and there are plenty of courses to choose from along the coastline though don’t forget the inland layouts at The Duke’s or Ladybank as these are two of the very best courses in the country.
