St Andrews has 10 golf courses in the immediate area and more than 30 within a half-hour’s drive. Within driving distance are Kingsbarns, Carnoustie and Open-qualifying courses, such as Crail and Lundin Links.

Kingsbarns Golf Links – 7126 yards, par 72
While its golf origins date back to 1793, the multi award-winning Kingsbarns Golf Links only opened in the summer of 2000. It immediately established itself as one of the world’s must-play links courses – debuting at 46th on Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Worldwide list. Since 2001, Kingsbarns has co-hosted the annual European Tour’s elite Dunhill Links Championship along with the Old Course and Carnoustie.

Kingsbarns has become a favourite destination for first-time and returning international and UK golf visitors to St Andrews. This reputation is based on a combination of playability, dramatic seaside location, classic links turf and staff dedicated to personal service. Designed by Kyle Phillips and Mark Parsinen, every hole on this championship-standard course offers inspiring views of the North Sea.
