Highly Recommended 2019

What the club says: No visit to Fairmont St Andrews would be complete without a game of golf. With two magnificent courses that weave their way over the rolling landscape, an unforgettable experience awaits both the seasoned professional and the beginner alike.

Torrance Course (Fairmont St Andrews)
Opened in August 2001, the Torrance is a spectacular course incorporating cliff-edge holes and stunning views over the North Sea and the medieval skyline of historic St Andrews.

Kittocks Course (previously known as Devlin Course) (Fairmont St Andrews)
The Devlin is the more challenging course of the two and was designed by Gene Sarazen and Bruce Devlin. Opened in July 2002, the course stretches over Kittock's Den and along the sweeping coastline. It provides a formidable test to every category of golfer with the breathtaking coastline an intrinsic feature of the layout.

Great course along to cliff tops

Amazing location of club house with good facilities and cafe/restaurant. Didn’t see a bar.
Plenty of tee times available.
The course was excellent and a good challenge. Stroke saver needed on first couple of rounds.
Will defiantly play again.

Great place to play

Fairmont St Andrews is a fantastic resort. Two courses, beautiful hotel, great pro shop, and a clubhouse with views to die for.
We played The Torrance Course. Great mix of challenging holes, Par 3s of all distances, one or two risk/reward driveable par 4s and long winding par 5s.
Main thing for me is always the greens, and, even though we played on 4th January, the greens were pristine and rolling true.
This place is well worth a visit.

Glorious Views, Great Value

Well worth playing either the Torrance or the Kittocks when visiting this corner of Fife. Although the weather is notoriously unreliable (well, it is Scotland), it's the unpredictability which helps make the tracks a challenge. Both courses have their fair share of tricky holes, while the views across the coastal area are truly memorable.

Fun and scorable links course

Kittocks Course was really welcoming and a great price for a Sunday morning. Some sweeping holes matched by some dramatic views across St Andrews Bay. A few devilish approaches keep you on your toes as you play a good mix of holes.
Played as lockdown was ending so didn't experience club facilities or food.

Open Qualifier Links Course

Enjoyable links course. Playing a little water logged but still holding up.
Kept in good order at a good quality hotel venue.
White tees give a good challenge without playing too long for the mid-handicapper

Great

It’s a great course for the thinking golfer. Very well done. Some tough holes especially in the wind but a lot of nice par 4s with strategic bunker positions

Mixed experience

From a golf perspective the course was in good condition (23/3) and as it was a sunny day with nominal wind, made it a relatively easy round. The course isn?t overly challenging, but has great views and a varied mix of holes. Compare the hospitality to the local St Andrews links courses & it falls way behind. Nobody serving in the club house restaurant, bacon rolls or nothing was the choice (they even had to be buttered, no choice there then). Really missing a trick.
