Terrific golf course. Very fair to play and quite beautiful. The first round is a little expensive, but they allow you to play a second round at half the cost. Highly recommend that you use a caddy. Really helps in navigating the course.

Kingsbarns is expensive but worth it. The course is spectacular and well maintained. Even though it is a pretty new course, it is fair and not quirky. Just honest Scottish golf with a view of the water on every hole!

Great golf course not far from St Andrews but not easy. Great setting and good club house facilities. Friendly and helpful staff and good club house food and drink. Well worth playing so highly recommended.
