What the club says: Kingsbarns Golf Links is proud to be part of the heritage of links golf in St Andrews. Located 7 miles south east of the ’home of golf’, the game has been played on the site since 1793.

Kyle Phillips designed this Top 100 Ranked golf course and by setting it in an amphitheatre along the coast, nearly every hole boasts spectacular views of the North Sea. Each Autumn Kingsbarns joins the Old Course, St Andrews and Carnoustie Golf Links as a co-host of the European Tour’s prestigious Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

As good as it gets

What can you say that hasn’t already been said. One of the best courses in the world let alone the UK. Stunning views, immaculate course. A real treat.

Top Scottish Links

Great course with a great setting. Worthy of it's high ranking. The course was in immaculate condition, even in April. Practice facilities are very good, staff friendly and helpful.

without doubt the best golf course I have played...we had a great day weather wise and played in Polo tops all the way round only a slight breeze which made the yardage easier to club on....greens were fantastic for the end of October and everything about the experience was very special....a golfing highlight for what was my 252nd golf course

An outstanding course, possibly the best I have ever played. The club, course and staff were all outstanding making it a truly memorable experience. Expensive but as a one-off it was well worth it

Glorious, rolling landscape with plenty of elevated tees and wonderful views up the Fife coast. Generous fairways but the early season greens were a little bumpy.

Fully lives up to its billing as one of the top UK courses. It can be tough in places but always rewards good shots and leaves you feeling it was an enjoyable challenge. The magic of the course is that it feels like it's always been there despite being a relatively new links. A true gem

Golfshake Team ReviewThe best course I've ever played. Admittedly the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and there was a bit of a breeze but from the time we arrived we were treated wonderfully. The course was immaculate, the tees, fairways, bunkers and greens were just perfect and the pin positions were just set on the tricky side that made you think about every approach shot. Every hole had the wow factor as soon as you reached the tee box. Difficult to say what the stand out holes are, can't think of a weak one to be honest. OK, it's expensive and it helped that we were treated but I'd certainly save up and play this one again iF i COULD.

Probably the best course in the world. The majority of the americans in St Andrews all agree that this course is better than Pebble Beach. It was simply breathtaking and an awesome experience. All the holes are stunning with glorious vista's.

I played here on a corporate day, the course condition, club house and facilities are superb. The staff are extremely helpful and very friendly, with nothing being too much trouble. The views are fantastic, but with all that wind the course is a lot different from the tree lined Surrey course I am used to.

Played here as the third course of our three day golf break, and the best was saved till last !!!

Excellent facilities, so get there early to use the free range.

Not a lot to say about the course except take your time and enjoy it, we did !!!

I love my golf like the rest of you. But this is easily the best course I have ever played in my life. Played in October 2012 - couple of weeks after the Dunhill Tournament - and the greens were flawless. My only problem was that the round went too quickly - and I would have had a caddie if I'd realised my other 3 playing partners were using them also - as local knowledge is essential. Or you do some serious research before you play! Staff were excellent and fantastically friendly. Loved it - and will be back despite the cost.
