Kirkcaldy Golf Course in Fife, Scotland, is an attractive, 18-hole parkland course that features a traditional Scottish burn that meanders by five holes throughout the course. Founded in 1904, Kirkcaldy is known locally as Balwearie and is spread over 150 acres of Fife countryside,

The challenges start early on Kirkcaldy Golf Course. The burn comes into play on No. 1, a 330-yard par 4. Hit over it on your drive and make sure you're not too big on the approach, as you will be left with a downhill chip out of the rough.

Kirkcaldy's version of "Amen Corner" starts at No. 6, a 345-yard par 4. Don't hit it to the center with your drive because you will end up on the right hand side. Hit to the front part of the right green. No. 7 is a 130-yard par 3 and the club's signature hole. Don't miss the green right, because the burn running alongside the hole is out of bounds. Amen ends at No. 8, a 329-yard par 4. It's the shortest par 4 on the course, but you have to deal with more burn and out of bounds on the right side.

Finish strong on No. 17, a 518-yard par 5. This is a "should I or shouldn't I?" hole as you contemplate crossing the burn in two from the top of the hill.

Kirkcaldy Golf Club is open to visitors and features a pro shop and a clubhouse that serves food and has social events like jazz concerts and performances by local bands.
