Leven Links Golf Course

Leven Links has hosted six qualifiers and has boasted a very impressive list of players, ranging from major winners to Ryder Cup players and a former world number one! Leven Links is a true test of links golf as the slopes and bounces of these natural obstacles come into play throughout the round. The golf course opens with a tricky hole where the green sits on a ridge plateau and it finishes with what some have boasted is one of the best finishing holes in the country. It is another difficult par-4 with a burn stretching across the front of the green.

Ladybank Golf Club

Another fantastic addition to the list, Ladybank Golf Club has been an qualifying venue four times. Ranked number 52 in Scotland, this golf course features long, narrow fairways lined with trees and well-manicured greens. Ladybank Golf Club’s par-4 ninth hole is the course’s signature. It is a demanding right-to-left dogleg with a tree guarding the corner and a two-tiered green.

Scotscraig Golf Club

Scotscraig Golf Club has been an qualifying venue six times from 1984 -2010 and has had the likes of Justin Rose, Edwardo Romero and Larry Mize competing to qualify. With a location that is not adjacent to but near the coastline, Scotscraig Golf Club is provided with a landscape that has a unique blend of links and heathland features. The club was founded in 1817, making it the 13th oldest club in the world. While visitors looking for true links golf courses often overlook it, Scotscraig has always been one of Scotland’s hidden gems. The most memorable hole is the par-4 fourth hole. This tricky hole has a fairway that is well guarded to the left by large bunkers and there is treacherous heathery terrain to the right. It requires accuracy from start to finish, especially reaching the small plateau green.
