Welcome to the Anstruther Golf Club

Welcome to Anstruther Golf Club home of The Rockies voted the toughest par 3 in the UK by Todays Golfer in September 2007. Are you up for the challenge? Click here to see the article in full...

Our philosophy is that we treat all of our guests as members and a truly warm ‘Anster’ welcome awaits all visiting golfers.

Anstruther Golf Club was founded in 1890 and has seen many changes over the years. The initial layout comprised 7 holes with trenches through the middle of the course and poles scattered over the greens to stop gliders landing during the war. In more peaceful times the course was extended to an excellent 9 holes which is kept in superb condition throughout the year.

The course is located 9 miles south of St Andrews and stretches along the shoreline between Anstruther and Pittenweem. The spectacular views over Anstruther Harbour and out to the Isle of May, Bass rock and south west to Edinburgh are a constant distraction. Golfers should beware of Anstruther Golf Club’s version of Amen corner which comprises a series of 3 challenging par 3’s starting with The Rockies (5th) voted the toughest par 3 in the UK!
