Set in the heart of Fife just 15 minutes drive from St Andrews, Ladybank is a heathland course set through Scots pines and silver birch. With tight, tree- and heather-lined fairways, the layout offers a solid test of accuracy and patience. The run for home is particularly challenging with five straight par 4s around the 400-yard mark from the 14th.

Panellists' comments: "Refreshing alternative to Fife's strong links line-up"; "The course is always immaculately presented"
