Anstruther Golf Club has a prime shorefront location with stunning views that stretch past Anstruther Harbor to the Isle of May. The club dates back to 1890, successfully surviving two wars. It began as a seven-hole golf course but throughout the years has expanded into a challenging nine-hole layout. The demanding fifth hole, also known as the 'Rockies,' is touted as being on of the toughest par 3s in the UK. This difficult risk-reward hole will definitely make or break your score. It begins with a shot from an elevated tee to a small fairway that is guarded by steep gorse to the right and a bank of rough to the left. Most golfers walk away happy with a bogey. The challenges don't stop at the fifth hole, though, it is only the first in a trio of holes that is considered Anstruther G.C.'s own version of Amen Corner.
