Who can name this classic golf course? 25 January 2021

I had the absolute privilege recently to play one of the very best links golf courses in Scotland. It is classic links all the way with huge and undulating greens, wonderful sea views, short and long par 4s and a couple of beautiful par 3s.

You could play the Scottish “ground game” on this course all day long. The club has a wonderful history, traditional clubhouse and is simply a joy to play.

It was home to a multiple Open Champion and features a very interesting bell behind one of its blind greens – see the picture of the bell above.

Who can tell me which famous golf course I am describing?

A couple of further clues which may help identify this most traditional of links – golf has been played on these grounds since the 1500s and the current club being formed in the 1870s.

The course is located in The Kingdom of Fife looking across the water towards the oldest golf club in the world.

One last clue – there is a close connection to a submarine to help the starter carry out his duties!
