Leven Golfing Society is the 11th oldest golf club in the world, dating back to 1820. We are looking forward to celebrating our bicentenary in 2020. The year 2020 will also see the 150th anniversary of the Standard Life Amateur Champion Gold Medal event which is hosted by the Club. This competition is recognised as the oldest amateur strokeplay competition in the world and the Gold Medal itself predates the famous Claret Jug which is awarded to the winner of the Open Championship. 2020 also sees the 50th anniversary of the Scottish Champion of Champions event which is tradionally the season opener for the top amateur golfers in Scotland and is always hosted by Leven Golfing Society.
The Club plays over Leven Links which is widely regarded as one of the best and purest links courses in Scotland, boasting input from Old Tom Morris himself. The course has hosted local final qualifying when the Open Championship is held at St Andrews. This bears testimony to the quality of the course. The signature hole is the 18th which is real test for golfers of all standards. It measures 456 yards with second or third shot being a carry over the Scoonie burn. In a Bunkered magazine poll, it was recently voted the 2nd hardest finishing hole in Scotland behind the 18th at Carnoustie.
The Club prides itself on its welcoming approach and its excellent facilities. Our Steward Jules Weir's catering is the envy of many clubs in the region. The Club has a large spacious bar, snug bar, dining room, meeting room, and a games room with the new addition of a top of the range golf simulator, as well as a large car park for members. The simulator allows members and visitors to play some of the worlds top courses in the comfort of the Clubhouse. The clubhouse also offers fantastic views out over the Leven Links towards Largo Law and Lundin Links over Largo bay.
With the Open visiting St Andrews this year, there has never been a better time to visit the Club and play a round on one of the best links courses in the world. I hope you enjoy browsing the website and any comments are welcome via the office.
I am proud to be the Captain of this prestigious Club and will be happy to assist you personally in any way that I can. We offer a warm welcome to all with top class golf with facilities and catering to match.
Golf Simulator now available for use
A Pro-Tee Golf Simulator has now been installed in the games room in the Clubhouse. This is a fantastic and unique addition to the already excellent facilities at the club.
The rates are £15 per hour for hire of the unit (members' rate) and £20 per hour (visitor rate). 4 visitors would therefore pay £10 per head for a 2 hour session. To play a round will take between 2 and 3 hours.
Not only can you play 100 of the top courses in the world such as St Andrews Old Course, Kingsbarns, & Augusta National, but also you can have fun playing "Nearest the Pin" or "Longest Drive" or simply have a bit of practice on the range. The facility provides information on such as face angle at impact, swing speed, swing path angle, launch angle, etc. Perfect for those wanting to improve their swing
