Played the Kittocks for the first time having heard lots of good things and read good reviews but I just cannot fathom the justification for such high reviews. I've played a lot of the top links courses in Fife and this just doesn't compare. Tee boxes were littered with divots, the fairways were long with sprouts of grass and weeds, the approaches had been tined and sanded (at the end of May??) and the greens were patchy at best. Not the conditions you would expect from a golf course charging £80. There were some interesting holes on the course but badly let down with the overall condition. Such a let down.

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.

Very long for me as not a very big hitter! Rough was very rough indeed and I never seen bunkers that deep before, such that the green was above your head with virtually a sheer wall in front of you. Got out of one fairly well at 2nd attempt. but played out backwards from the next as the only sensible option for me! Large greens to hit generally, but lots of slopes to test your reading for putts. Terrific coastal scenery, although I couldn't really enjoy it very much as playing in strong wind driven rain.

The course is very nice although short off the yellow tee's. The Kittocks is a lot nicer and tougher. A lot of the fairways were cut with lines so not as good as the Kittocks neither. A very nice course but spoilt playing the Kittocks first!

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

Worth it.

Sandwiched as it is between the Castle Course and Kingsbarns it would be easy to overlook Fairmont. Don?t.
The Kittocks has some amazing holes and views and the Torrance, whilst being a bit dull for the first 7, blossoms on the back 9.
