A Modern Classic in The Making

Dumbarnie is a fabulous addition to Scotland's golf landscape; an intricately designed layout that makes the absolute most of its magnificent setting to deliver incredible views but also a smart challenge for players, requiring strategy and presenting options with shot selection.

Akin to other modern coastal designs, like Kingsbarns and Castle Stuart, Dumbarnie will grow into a major favourite among international visitors and those closer to home.

It's still a little rough around the edges, which is to be expected given it's little over two year's old, but I believe once fully embedded, it has the potential to surpass those aforementioned destinations as a true contemporary classic.

The presentation at the clubhouse and range is first-class and sets the tone for the experience. Dumbarnie really is very, very good.

Wonderful early morning visit

We were the first players on the course that was bathed in sunshine and resplendent in shadows as it was almost dawn.This course is simply magnificent. It is hard to beehive it is only two years old. It sits in an enviable position providing views of the seas and coast on most holes. Played in balmy sunshine with little wind I would love to return and attempt its challenges in harsher weather. The short holes are excellent and a real challenge from all tee boxes.an ability to shape a ball for the other tee shots is an advantage as there are some decent carries and the rough , if found, can be penal. this is afabulosu avenue that I will definite;y return to at some point as it simply scratched the surface on one playing of its superb location, conditioning and styling. the service fro staff throughout was that of the highest quality american country clubs. Genuinely a great experience.

Exudes Excellence

Dumbarnie quite simply ranks up there with the best and certainly shows what you can do if you have the right location and the right amount of money to build and develop a new course. The design, layout, conditions, views and venue are first class and you are unlikely to be disappointed if you play here.

Each hole is carefully crafted into the landscape with fairways seemingly framed by nature but the beauty you see on every hole when standing on the tee box is actually a challenge lying there waiting for you. As with most courses, keep it on the fairway and the course is favourable but if you do stray then expect the course to bite you.

If you enjoy taking photos whilst playing you will probably never stop. Every hole offers something different, is well designed and picture perfect and the layout of the course, whilst reletively flat, finds you meandering from hole to hole with very little opportunity to see where you have been or where you are going next - something that appeals to many.

We played in Summer 2022 and the course was in excellent condition and the greens were slowly coming back after some recent maintenance work following some documented issues due to overuse. They in no way detracted from our round and still ran true, albeit slightly slower, and you could clearly see what they will be like once back to their best.

If you get the opportunity to play here then jump at it. It comes with a price but you do get what you pay for the the welcome and facilities are first class - who doesn't love an open air range with ball pyramids set-up for !

Stunning

The layout at Dumbarnie is quite simplay fantastic. The different tee boxes allows you to be able to have a real fun round of golf. With some drivable par 4's and some cracking par 3's, length wise - the course could be as hard as you want it to be.

Some of the views are superb and the way the holes sit in the dunes is such clever design.

The greens are getting close after a really tough winter, not at their best but it really wont be long.

Must play course.

What an amazing course. Great layout, wonderful views. Just brilliant. There are no instances of hole "Crossovers" or any hole being close enough to another to have any "Four" calls etc. Really good use of the space.

Brilliant Course

An absolute gem of a course for only being 1 year old. All aspects of the course are in perfect condition and every hole is in a different direction and unique. Fantastic views across the Forth and a must play for everyone. Wide range of tees to cater for all level of golfers with some challenging risk/ reward Par 4's with split fairways. I rate it higher than the surrounding Kingsbarns and St Andrews courses (including the Old Course). The staff are so friendly and helpful which makes the experience all the better. Highly recommended.

The best of the best

One year on from my last visit, this golf course is just exceptional. The entire experience from the welcome, introduction at the starters hut, through to the perfectly manicured course and fantastic greens, is just ace, 19/10 for everything. The new clubhouse is complete, and will be opening on 26th.
However, even the takeaway food was great. Service 10/10.

Every Hole is enjoyable

Played Dumbarnie 19th October - an overcast and wet day, but thankfully for the first 17 holes it remained dry. Dumbarnie is a thoroughly enjoyable course, which offers forgiving fairways and generous well paced greens. For me every hole was enjoyable. Playing off the white tees with a 24 handicap was fair.

The starter offers you a course guide, scorecard and selection of tees, ball marker and pencil in a plastic bag. It would have been nice to recieve in a branded bag. For me given the club house is not complete and the facilities are portacabins the price is still slightly on the steep side. However give this course a couple of years to mature and have everything sorted it will definitely be worth the money.

Course was in great knick for one so young, and would definitely come back in a few years to try again once it has bedded in.

Stunning Golf Course

Played Tuesday 15th. Nice calm day with no wind. Every hole has a wow factor. Lots of front and middle yardage discs which had to be used as majority of gps systems not mapped as yet. Greens great and fairways nice. Good selection of tees. Played off whites which were probably a bit short at some holes but that was due to no wind that is generally unheard of. Well worth a visit and give it 2 or 3 years it will be even better. Personally I found it more enjoyable to play than Trump Aberdeen. On site facilities due to C19 are portal cabins which are spotless and a catering van and tent. Food was good £8 for a burger but nice. All staff were excellent on the day.

Great New Course

Dumbarnie Links, what a fantastic layout this Links has A great mix of holes, some nice dog leg par 4s, which probably suit a long hitting low handicap golfer Certainly some wonderful risk and reward holes Definately a must visit.
Give it a couple of years to mature, and The European Tour will come calling.
