Top hint for this course

Here's a tip for the final hole. Favour the right side of the fairway from the tee box to cut the dogleg and gain the easiest chance for the approach. Don't bottle it on the final hole!

Full Course Lowdown

Visitors of St. Andrews claim this might be one of the most underrated courses they've played and it's not hard to see why.

Golf links at its finest-earthy terrain and deep natural bunkers-a dream for the links lovers and fanatics.

As a multiple tournament hosting course, expect plenty of thrilling challenges for the squad. Prepare for an exciting and unique round for an epic golf holiday in St. Andrews.


For the opener, carry over the rough and land in the middle of the fairway. The second shot should favour the left to clear the approach.

On the 6th, a par-4, aim between the first two bunkers for the best approach to the dancefloor. If you were accurate, the approach to a lengthy green should be no problem, but the putting on the other hand… good luck.

At the start of the back nine, a break from links bunkers makes for a pleasant surprise. The generous fairway welcomes scorchers off the tee; open up your shoulders and let loose.

The 17th requires accuracy. Stay within the centre of the fairway the entire time, avoid the bunkers dotted across either side and finding the pin will be a breeze.


A 19th centred around comforting clubhouse classics. If you're hitting the fairways early, make it your priority to pig out on the famous fry-up to fuel the round. Is there a better way to start the day?

After the round treat yourself to a taste of Kingsbarns own whiskey or take your pick from the various beers and ales available on draught.
