Directions
South east Fife located off A92 midway between Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy
1 - Rosslyn

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 12

Championship - 347 Medal - 347 Regular - 336 C'ship Ladies - 322 Ladies & Juniors - 322

A slightly elevated tee plays down to a narrow landing area with tree
lined fairway a common feature at Thornton golf course . A driver of
the tee leaves a short Iron to a stadium shaped green with a narrow
entrance well protected by bunkers either side, alternatively a 3 wood
or long iron will bring in the wider part of the fairway and leave an
longer iron to the green, a gentle start to the round.

2 - Thorns

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 14

Championship - 366 Medal - 366 Regular - 336 C'ship Ladies - 304 Ladies & Juniors - 304

With a recently constructed new medal tee this challenging dog leg
right to left par 4 demands a good tee shot. Again the tree lined
fairway with a narrow exit from the tee opens up to a wide landing
area with two bunkers waiting on the right hand side for any stray tee
shots. Once on the fairway a good drive will leave a mid iron to a large
green again protected by bunkers either side.

3 - Ore Mills

Par 3 Par 3 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 8

Championship - 208 Medal - 208 Regular - 195 C'ship Ladies - 150 Ladies & Juniors - 150

The first of Thorntons par 3's is a long iron or fairway wood to a large circular shaped green which slopes down
from the back to front, with one large bunker on the left and two smaller ones on the right. With the feature on the
hole being a silver birch tree in the centre of the fairway some 150 yards from the tee.
4 - Lomond

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 6

Championship - 406 Medal - 406 Regular - 388 C'ship Ladies - 377 Ladies & Juniors - 377

Another difficult dog leg right to left, again a good drive required from a platform tee to the right hand side of a
narrowing tree lined fairway, the best line is down the right hand side leaving a mid to long iron into a 36 yard long
green which slopes upwards from front to back, there are bunker protection short left of the green and one either
side of the green.

5 - Wemyss

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 2

Championship - 428 Medal - 428 Regular - 413 C'ship Ladies - 355 Ladies & Juniors - 355

This slight dog leg left to right par 4 is the toughest hole on the front nine, again as with most par 4 holes at
Thornton a good drive required preferably as tight to the right hand side of the tree lined fairway as possible, this
will leave a long iron to a long green that falls away on the right hand side, with a bunker 20yards short on the right
hand side picking up any stray shots.

6 - Randolph

Par 5 Par 5 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 10

Championship - 478 Medal - 478 Regular - 456 C'ship Ladies - 414 Ladies & Juniors - 414

From an elevated tee this par five gives the best chance of a birdie on the front nine, from the drive there is a fairway
bunker 235 yards on the left hand side but if this is avoided then a fairway wood to well protected green with
bunkers front and rear on both sides. If however you have to lay up there are also bunkers left and right some 50
yards short of the putting surface that slopes upwards from front to back.

7 - Junction

Par 3 Par 3 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 16

Championship - 189 Medal - 189 Regular - 170 C'ship Ladies - 156 Ladies & Juniors - 156

The second of the par 3s at Thornton can vary due to wind conditions but generally a long iron to a generous green
with 4 bunkers protecting a deceptive sloping green . There is the added hazard of out of bounds to the rear of the
green so beware not to take to much club.

8 - Waukmill

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 4

Championship - 398 Medal - 398 Regular - 387 C'ship Ladies - 363 Ladies & Juniors - 363

Again from an elevated tee this tee shot requires accuracy rather than length, with out of bounds all the way down
the left hand side and a thick tree lining down the right hand side you then have a mid iron to a large green again
protected by 2 bunkers to the left and 4 bunkers on the right. Again one of the toughest holes on the front nine.

9 - Lochtyside

Par 3 Par 3 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 18

Championship - 125 Medal - 125 Regular - 120 C'ship Ladies - 116 Ladies & Juniors - 116

The finishing hole on the front nine is this gentle par three, which has a shared double green with the 11th, but
beware there trouble waiting for a bad shot ,Anything short or left will gather and run back down to the bottom of
the hill, there is also 2 pot bunkers at the front of the green which must be avoided as well as larger ones either side
of the green.
10 - Auld Tam

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 3

Championship - 399 Medal - 399 Regular - 333 C'ship Ladies - 313 Ladies & Juniors - 313

From a teeing ground in the natural hollow, this blind tee shot to a tree lined fairway requires good length and
accuracy, once this obstacle has been overcome a mid to long iron in to a well guarded green with a narrow entrance
with newly constructed bunkers either side as well as one to the right rear to pick up any stray shots.

11 - Balgonie

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 13

Championship - 401 Medal - 401 Regular - 384 C'ship Ladies - 323 Ladies & Juniors - 323

This tee shot through a tree lined funnel to a widening fairway which has a bunker on the left 210 yards from the
tee, beyond this there is a very undulating fairway which can sometimes leave a awkward stance for the mid to long
iron approach shot to this this large double green, which slopes away from you and is shared with the 9th hole, there
is also bunker protection front right and left.

12 - Mackie's Mill

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 1

Championship - 421 Medal - 421 Regular - 410 C'ship Ladies - 324 Ladies & Juniors - 324

The toughest hole on the golf course, the blind tee shot to a fairway sloping from the right to left with trees either
side demands a good drive if you want to reach the green, from the fairway a long iron or fairway wood to a sloping
green from left to right, with a narrow entrance and deep bunkers either side a par is always a good score.
13 - The Meetin

Par 5 Par 5 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 11

Championship - 530 Medal - 530 Regular - 498 C'ship Ladies - 410 Ladies & Juniors - 410

Dog leg right to left par 5 with an elevated tee hitting to a blind
landing area. This is a lay up hole for most golfers, after your drive a
second shot to a very narrow landing area tightly guarded by trees
just short of the bunkers would leave you a short iron to a green
surrounded by bunkers. Be carefull not to miss the fairway as a par
from the trees is never easy.

14 - Burn

Par 3 Par 3 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 5

Championship - 197 Medal - 197 Regular - 178 C'ship Ladies - 156 Ladies & Juniors - 156

This is the first of the holes where the course borders the River Ore, The most difficult par 3 on the course this hole
plays anything from a driver to long iron, with out of bounds all the way down the left hand side it takes a good shot
to find the sloping putting surface, and with a bunker on the right hand side of the green there is no easy entrance.

15 - Hutton's Gap

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 7

Championship - 359 Medal - 359 Regular - 348 C'ship Ladies - 309 Ladies & Juniors - 309

Again water all the way down the left hand side which is out of bounds, this sharp dog leg right to left has a difficult
tee shot to a sloping fairway, if the fairway is found then an elevated approach to a plateaux green awaits protected
on the right hand side with a deep bunker.
16 - Earlseat

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 15

Championship - 244 Medal - 244 Regular - 228 C'ship Ladies - 206 Ladies & Juniors - 206

This little gem has the ultimate risk and reward tee shot, again water
and out of bounds down the left hand side, this drivable green has
7 bunkers guarding and fir trees all the way along the right hand
side. If the lay up shot is chosen then a long iron to a tight landing
area leave a pitch shot to a sloping green again well protected by
bunkers, your choice

17 - Rothes

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 17

Championship - 291 Medal - 291 Regular - 268 C'ship Ladies - 248 Ladies & Juniors - 248

90 degree dog leg right to left, another short but very testing hole. Again out of bounds down the left hand side, this
tight fairway demands accuracy with a long iron or fairway wood to the end of the fairway, which leave a short iron
to an elevated green protected left and right by deep bunkers, slightly wayward tee shots may not have any shot to
the green.

18 - Gully

Par 4 Par 4 - (Ladies & Juniors) Stroke Index 9

Championship - 396 Medal - 396 Regular - 381 C'ship Ladies - 365 Ladies & Juniors - 365

Very difficult finishing hole, with the railway line out of bounds all the way left of this hole and tree line all the way
down the right hand a good drive is required any thing straying to the right could be met by the hollow gully trap,
the approach to the green with a mid iron has to be accurate with bunkers left and right and also one to the rear, a
par always a good score.
