Charleton Golf Club in Fife bills itself as the "perfect course for visitors." The parkland golf course is an 18-hole par 72, just 15 minutes from St. Andrews. The holes are set among panoramic views over the Firth of Forth, in what its Web site boasts as "the most attractive golf course in Fife."

The Charleton course starts with three straight par 4s, including the third, a dogleg that kicks off from an elevated position. No. 4 is a par 5, 475 yards and uphill. You get a break on No. 5, one of two par 3s on the course, a 152-yard shot with a tricky layout and a tight green. Hit to the left and you miss the fairway. To the right you get bunker.

The back nine is highlighted by No. 11, called "The Law," a 344-yard par 4. Hit your tee shot left of the green. Head right and you'll end up rolling down toward a pond and semi-rough. No. 17 is Charleton Golf Club's signature hole, nicknamed "The Ha Ha," a 287-yard par 4. The tricky shot is the second, which is over a wall onto a narrow green.

Charleton Golf Club also features nine-hole pitch and putt, a driving range, a clubhouse with a restaurant and bar, and the use of carts in the summer.

    My wife and I played Charleton yesterday and were absolutely overwhelmned by the condition and beauty of it. It is the only course I have played, and I have played in many countries, where I would not change a hole. My wife was even more taken aback with the course and proceeded to produce her best golf and gave me a good walloping off bare feet .Needless to say we both think it is the best course we have played and top value

    Played the course mid October but weather was fine. Course was in great condition, in particular the greens and for £20 it was fantastic value.
