Top hint for this course

On the 8th, this par-3 is harshly narrow, so favour a smaller iron than usual to maintain accuracy. Anything slightly left or right will find sand.

Full Course Lowdown

Ladybank Golf Club is a true Scottish gem. It's golf heritage, designed by The Grand Old Man of Golf, and a regular in Scotland's top 100 courses.

Old Tom Morris envisioned a heathland course with tree-lined fairways and awkwardly placed bunkers to complicate the fairways. Organise a group and test your skills.


A par-4 starts the round, with a well-guarded dancefloor. The first shot should favour the left of the fairway, with the green reachable in two strokes.

Let's not start with a shocker!

The 7th is narrow, but don't be intimidated, a birdie is possible with careful navigation. Drive slightly left and hit the centre of the green with the second shot. Easy.

This is a straightforward end to the front nine. Avoid the mounds and navigate your way to the pin. Favouring the right side will succeed. You've got this.

On the 17th, it's best to under-hit, as trees crowd the back of the dancefloor. Dodge the tree in the middle of the fairway, which should be simple, unless you hook it.

To finish, this par-4 features a bunker that often catches people out, and we can't have you bottling it at the end! Avoid the left bunker just away from the green and hit the pin.


Grab a pint and overlook the course you conquered.

Kick back in this welcoming 19th and grab a pic of the legendary Trophy Cabinet, with medals up to 144 years old.

The Spike Bar is perfect for catching up on the action and enjoying a refreshing and well-earned pint. Surely the loser gets the first round?

The Location

Ladybank Golf Club is close to St. Andrews, so this location is iconic.

We recommend you stay in St. Andrews, not just for the legendary experience, but because of convenience.

St. Andrews is not only home to the Old Course but it's lined with resorts, hotels, restaurants, bars and a nightclub. The home of golf is far more well-rounded than Ladybank.


Another must-try golf course is Kingsbarns Golf Links, which is only 23.9 miles away. It's perfect for a day trip.

Dundee Airport is 20 miles from Ladybank. You can get to your accommodation, drop off your bags, and swing into action ASAP.
