Ladybank Golf Club was established in 1879. The architect of the original 6-hole course, Old Tom Morris, played in the Autumn Meeting that year as a ‘stranger’ and won despite his handicap of +3 strokes.
In 1910 a circular 9 holes was formed with the holes varying in length from 330 to 400 yards with ‘two short sporting’ holes at the fourth and seventh. A further 9 holes were laid down in 1958 and incorporated within the existing course in 1961 to form an 18 hole course.
A heathland course of Championship status (Par 71) set amongst heather, pine trees and silver birch.
Ladybank Golf Club is synonymous with The Open Championship qualifying. One of the premier courses in the UK, it has hosted final Open qualifying on seven occasions since 1978 when The Open was played at St Andrews. In 2018 Ladybank was rewarded with final qualifying for The Senior Open Championship hosted at St Andrews.
Ladybank Golf Club provides a classic heathland test and enjoys a reputation as one of the finest inland layouts in the British Isles. At only 16 miles from St Andrews the `Home of Golf` this is a must visit venue when staying near by.
