What the club says: A championship links, this awesome course became an Open qualifier in 1992. It dates back to 1856 but some records suggest it may have been founded in 1794. Old Tom Morris designed the first 15 holes, bringing the sea in as a lateral water hazard on some of the layout. When the wind gets up it is a formidable test for even the best of golfers. Well defined holes following the natural contours of a narrow strip of land between the old red sandstone deer park wall and the rocky shoreline are the hallmarks of this 18

One of my favourite courses

This course is one of the best I have played in Scotland. A real challenge and probably the truest greens you will find outside of the major venues. I can?t wait to play it again...

Absolutely Excellent

A truly outstanding links course which has the senses piqued from start to finish. Interesting holes, fine views and excellent conditioning mean this should be a bucket list course for anyone who loves links golf!

Top class links...

What a great classic links course this is. Set out using natural lie of the land and classic out and in links, with back 9 playing into the prevailing wind. A nice test and beautifully maintained. Hosted final open qualifying this year. Must play.

Wow what a challenge today in wind and gusts up to 24 mls per hour. Great on the way out but the biggest challenge back into the wind. Best hole was No 2 into the wind. Three good blows to get in on the green in 5.

Course was in very good condition given the time of year. Play was a little slow but we had a couple of fourballs out in front of us. Very windy day but very enjoyable.

Course in great condition.

Course is in really good condition as of May 2018 and the greens were tremendous. We played it in fairly easy sunny conditions but I can imagine it being a really tough challenge when the wind blows. Staff were very friendly and I'd like to play again.
