Lundin Links (Lundie)
The fairways are narrow; the bunkers are plenty; there’s an internal out of bounds; there are burns ( small streams ) and an ever changing wind; what’s not to like ? (or fear!) Not long at 6300 yds. But the championship tees don’t increase the length greatly and the best Professionals can do on all three courses is 63, confirming the absolute need for accuracy on all of them. The yardage would suggest that we mid-handicappers can (in theory at least!) reach all the holes in regulation. The club house fish and chips are magnificent!!
Playing Lundin Links Golf Course
The course was laid out, (again, or perhaps, as usual!) by Old Tom Morris in 1868. The annual subs were 13pence, and that was probably considered a bit steep in those days; originally the course was described as ‘benty, tussocky, and ripe with whin bush’ so, no discernible change there then.
Lundin Links is located in an attractive area of picturesque old fishing villages and countryside – this is a must-play course on any golf tour to Scotland. Features include:
- A top class Pro Shop
- A welcoming Clubhouse
- An after-round Restaurant
- The standard scratch score is 71
- A complex course with open burns, an internal out of bounds (the old railway line), and strategic bunkering
- A course with rich history
