Charleton Golf & Country Club boasts a reputation for being one of the most attractive golf courses in Fife. It sits just minutes from St. Andrews but it offers impressive views over the Firth of Forth that make it a completely unique experience. The parkland layout starts out gently enough but really becomes challenging on the fourth hole, which is a par 5 that plays uphill. There are numerous bunkers strategically placed around the greens and the occasional water hazard comes into play, perhaps most notably on the tricky par-4 11th. The par-4 17th is the signature hole, known for its second shot that is played over a wall onto a narrow green. In addition to the course, Charleton Golf & Country Club also boasts a nine-hole pitch-and-putt course and a driving range.

Very wet , little shelter on course. If you are not quite straight on all shots hitting the fairways etc you will lose your ball. Thick long grass down both sides of fairways. Difficult greens with lots of undulations. Good day out.

Really nice course enjoyed it alot but unfortunately the clubhouse lets it down. First thing you smell when you walk in is grease and cigarette smoke, so definitely wouldn't eat in the clubhouse.

It had been just over a year since I last played Charleton, and I was struck by the changes (for the better!) to the course. The additions of some new bunkers and strategic extra drainage, have made for a far better all round lay out. Will definitely be back.

We played this course less than a week after "the beast from the east" had passed, and it was very good, the greens in particular were very good and ran very well, overall the course has stood up well to the wintry conditions, a credit to the green staff, also £16 on teeofftimes, happy days, get up and play it, you won't be dissapointed

Course was in good nick despite the previous week's wet weather. Greens were very good for the time of year which is a bonus at this time of year. Getting to play the ball off the turf instead of a winter mat is one of the reasons we'll keep going back to Charleton GC.

Also the fine efforts of the bar and catering staff are much appreciated pre and post round keeping us fuelled with coffee and bacon rolls.

We had our 2 yearly golf day out here with a group of 13 and had a great day. Bacon rolls and coffee in the morning before heading out for our first round of golf, soup and rolls awaited us after this round before we went out for our 2nd round of the day. Then got a 2 course meal when we arrived back which was delicious. Course is in great condition for the time of year and recent rainfall. 16&17th were a little soggy underfoot but to be expected. Some great holes ranging from reachable par 4s to long testing par 5s (13th was a killer getting up that hill in the 2nd round). Hospitality was great, Andy in the bar was very efficient and helpful. All the boys had a great day and will be back in 2 years when home from Australia for the next day out.
