St Andrews Coast
The St Andrews Coast is on the east side of Fife. There are many renowned courses in this area and none more famous than the Old Course, St Andrews. St Andrews is the main town and offers the ultimate experience for the golfer. In the summer especially, the streets and courses bustle with golfers from dawn until dusk. Whether playing courses here or not, St Andrews is a must for every golfers itinerary when coming to the region. It is only then you will understand what it means to have visited the true Home of Golf.
St Andrews Links has 7 courses - The Old, New, Eden, Strathtyrum, Balgove and Jubilee. The Castle Course is the newest addition, opened in 2008, is situated just outside the town. The courses all have their own character and welcome visitors, although The Old Course can only be played through taking part in the daily ballot.
The Dukes Course is owned by the Old Course Hotel and sits on the hill outside the town. The Dukes is a parkland course, with many holes winding its way through mature trees on many holes.
The Fairmont St Andrews has 2 courses - The Torrance and Kittocks. Both are excellent tests of golf and provide stunning views of the North Sea over to Angus. The Torrance Course hosts the Scottish Seniors Open on the European Seniors Tour.
Crail Golfing Society also has two courses, the Balcomie and Craighead. The Balcomie dates back to 1895, with many holes running by the sea. The newer Craighead offers golfers a different, but equally enjoyable course to play, with both providing some of the best greens in the area.
