|Undulating course which houses the final qualifying round for the Open Championship. Typifying the best in British golf the course occupies the most natural piece of golfing land in the world, and the members a body determined to enjoy it to the full. Luffness can be hard, mighty hard when the wind whistles down the Firth of Forth. There are distinctive bunkers on this honest an straightforward course with the best greens imaginable. Luffness offers a feeling of escape allied to a sense of challenge and enjoyment that few others can match.
Designed by Old Tom Morris, this undulating links land with famous greens and rough which punishes the errant shot. The par 4 holes are a fair test with many requiring a good second shot depending on the wind. The short 3rd hole selected a famous by many authorities, the tee shot can be a 6 iron of a driver depending on the conditions. The fairway 'turf' is kind underfoot with the well groomed 'pot' bunkers.
