Sport and Leisure

Sport in Dunfermline is very well catered for with many top class sporting facilities in the area. Dunfermline is host to the Scottish National Waterski Centre at the Town Loch.

The town's main leisure centre is the Carnegie Centre. Originally constructed by the well known philanthropist Andrew Carnegie it now boasts many excellent facilities including a 25 metre swimming pool, childrens pool, fitness rooms and gyms, saunas and Turkish baths.

Fife is of course the home of golf, containing perhaps the most famous golf course of all - the Old Course at St. Andrews. Dunfermline also sports many quality golf facilities including Pitfirrane Golf Course, Pitreavie Golf Club, and a driving range at nearby Cairneyhill.

Gymnastics is another sport at which the town excels. Our Spartan's Gymnastic Display Team is one of the best in Britain; their annual display festival 'Gymstock' attracts a whole host of top teams from all over the UK.
