The Howe of Fife provides Ladybank Golf Club with a natural shelter in the valley of the River Eden between Strathmiglo in the West and Cupar to the east. Ladybank is a Top 100 UK course as it is one of Scotland’s best inland courses. In 1879 Old Tom Morris was tasked with laying out Ladybank Golf Club as a six-hole course which was later increased to 18 holes in 1962 by Laurie Auchterlonie Jr.
Ladybank Golf Club is regularly used as a Final Open Qualifier and is a tough course to crack, testing golfer of all abilities. The smallish greens are always in outstanding condition but golfers who step foot on this track, will need sharp iron play skills in order to hold the firm fast putting surfaces. The fairways are relatively flat and even, you will rarely find an uneven stance. Ladybank Golf Club measures over 6,800 yards, making it a challenging course, keeping the ball in play will pay dividends to your final score, meaning there is more of a premium on hitting the fairways that hitting a long ball even with how long the course may be playing.
