Dunnikier Park Golf Club is an 18-hole course located in Kirkcaldy, Scotland, 30 miles north of Edinburgh and 20 miles south of St. Andrews. Formed in 1963, the golf course has evolved over the years.

Dunnikier is 6,546 yards with a par of 72. The Lomond Hills serve as a backdrop on several holes, providing a stunning view. The front nine is in secluded woodland, while the back nine gets you out into civilization.

Dunnikier Park Golf Club's signature hole is No. 7, called "The Dip," a 368-yard par 4. The fairway disappears into a dip and then rises to the green. It's not just challenging, it's the best looking hole, too. It doesn't get much easier on No. 8, named "The Deception." The 383-yard par 4 is uphill all the way. Avoid the fairway bunkers with your drive then carry over the bunkers protecting the green.

No. 9 and 12 are two of the four par 5s and the two longest holes. Nine is 547 yards. Hit just an average tee shot, and you are in good position for a second shot over the hill. Twelve is monstrous at 597 yards. If you play off the "Tiger Tee," it's a ridiculous 650-yard hole. Make sure you hit if long, though. If your drive is short, you might not even make it to the ladies tee, the hole is THAT long.

A major extension and refurbishment was carried out to the clubhouse in 2001. It was upgraded to modern standards. New locker rooms and visitor changing facilities were added. The main lounge can seat over 100 guests, and dress is casual except for Saturday nights when there is a strict dress code after 8 p.m.

Kirkcaldy is one of the largest towns in Fife and has a history of tourism. Visitors are always welcomed at the club.

Played this after a nights rainfall so the first cut was very clingy making shots from off the fairway difficult. Course was in very good condition although the greens had just been tyned and sanded. Lovely coutse and will def. play again.

As a Council owned course it is one of the best kept and challenging. Well worth the rate paid. The clubhouse was also friendly with good food.

This course was excellent value for money. Having not played myself for a while due to injury I found the course to be a fair challenge. The course condition was also very good and the greens in particular we're excellent. The staff were also polite and helpful. Definitely recommend to my friends.
