What the club says: Buddon Course - The Buddon Links Course has been extensively remodelled to make it more enjoyable for the average golfer, although some of the holes would not be out of place on the Championship Course. 18 holes. Par 68. 5921 yards. Links.
Burnside Course - Ideal for golfers looking for slightly less of a challenge, shorter than its big brother and a great introduction to the exciting world of links golf. Its where Ben Hogan qualified from before winning his only Claret Jug in 1953. 18 holes. Par 68. 6020 yards. Links.
Championship Course - Host to the Open seven times, the Championship Course has been voted the top course in Scotland by many of the golfing greats and has been described as Scotland's ultimate golfing Challenge. The 1999 Open captured the public's imagination as some of the game's greatest players floundered, and will always be remembered for Jean van de Velde's disastrous last hole where he let slip a three stoke lead to lose to Paul Lawrie in the play-off. 18 holes. Par 72. 6941 yards. Links.
A real mix of holes, Links and breeze, tough driving holes and accurate placement needed, followed by a selection of heath before finishing back on the sea. Not what I was expecting, perhaps more location based on the pricing but well worth a visit if taking in the area.

Excellent course, fantastic condition and even better to play it in the high winds!!!

Played the Buddon and the Burnside. Only difference to the Championship Course is the length and the cost!! Fortunately we were signed on by a member which vastly reduced the costs!!
Lucky to have a still day, will be nice once new pro shop is open. Would recommend a visit to anyone.

The only negative about this course is that its has no driving range. The only thing on offer are 3 or four driving nets at the side of the main building. Pretty disapointing really when you consider what is the norm at St Andrews. But otherwise awesome.
