Dumbarnie Links Open for Business

Tuesday 9th June 2020

Both Paul and Niall were instrumental in bringing this project to fruition working alongside course architect Clive Clark to achieve planning consent and then managing and coordinating the build of the project.  Construction began in May 2018 and the main contractors, (Landscapes Unlimited,) completed the build in November of the same year. It was was an incredible team effort from all involved in the construction process to create this stunning course in such a short space of time.  Whilst the sandy ground conditions provided ideal conditions to create a links golf course the virgin landscape was devoid of topography after years of agricultural farming. Thus, considerable imagination and endeavour was required to create this course.    In 2019 the golf course was given time to fully grow in under the watchful eye of golf operators OB Sports and course superintendent, Grahame Taylor. The global pandemic has impacted the completion schedule of the clubhouse and related infrastructure but the golf course was opened to the public on May 29th 2020 after a two week delay due to Covid - 19.  

This course is truly a wonderful addition to the Fife golfing coastline and initial feedback suggests that the course has been well received and will be a great success.  Dumbarnie Links is sure to be added to the itineraries of many a visiting golfer in the years to come and we are proud to have been involved and associated with the project. 

To demonstrate the incredible transformation of the land during the construction of the course we have prepared the following 'before and after' video compilations showing what the land originally looked like and how it was earthworked and shaped to create the golf course.
