About the Club

Originally a six-hole layout designed by Old Tom Morris, Ladybank Golf Club was established in 1879. By 1910, an expansion programme resulted in a circular nine-hole format being created and further expansion saw the introduction of 18 holes in May 1961. Though minor alterations have obviously taken place since, the course remains relatively unchanged.

Another rare Scottish course that provides the golfer with a worthwhile alternative to the rugged links game, 1978 was a landmark year for Ladybank, when it was chosen as a British Open qualifying venue. Since then, Ladybank Golf Club has hosted final qualifying on numerous occasions and the golfers who have graced its turf include among others Bernard Langer, Jack Nicklaus, Justin Leonard, Darren Clarke and the late Payne Stewart.

On teeing off at Ladybank, the golfer quickly becomes aware of the challenge about to be presented. The mature woodland channels the wind in such a way that the aspect of each hole changes. The dogleg first hole is typical of many at Ladybank, when having carried the rough to the fairway the golfer is left with a tight second to the green. The bunkers, which surround the green, prevent all but the most accurate of shots from holding the putting surface and a par here is a good start to what is sure to be an enjoyable round.

A beautiful parkland layout set amongst heather, pine trees and silver birch, the Ladybank design comprises two loops of nine holes. With tree-lined fairways, it is an excellent test of golf and rewards the brave and accurate player - accuracy or bravery alone however often has the reverse effect on one's score. Combined with the undeniable quality of the course, the surrounding tranquillity and beauty enhance an already exquisite golfing experience.

Ladybank Golf Course

The course definition may have changed dramatically in the intervening one hundred years but its character remains intact. If you stray off line expect to be punished for your sins.

The drive at the dogleg 3rd and 9th holes requires extreme care, as do the 15th and 16th on the back nine. The greens are compact and your approach shot requires precision to find the putting surface. The fairways are predominantly flat leaving you invigorated from the exercise with a surfeit of energy to meet the excesses of the 19th hole.
