#2 of 234 in Golf in Scotland
Ranked in the top 60 courses in the world and top 20 in Europe, Kingsbarns Golf Links sports 18 well-maintained holes, all with views of the North Sea. The course was built in the early 2000s and reflects a more American golf style rather than traditional Scottish links. Caddies offer information about each hole and advice about each shot.

  • I did like the caddy program and the caddy services. Clubhouse and service is really good. Followed by a very playable and really enjoyable golf course to play. The condition of the course was in top shape and depending on how good you are at golf, you can make the course as challenging as you like! Awesome course and yes another must play when you hit Scotland on a golf tour.
  • Great place to watch the golf, we watched the Dunhill links here and the views of the course were stunning, and you can get close to the pro golfers to see how they play. Great day out.
  • This may be overlooked by golfers visiting St. Andrews. That would be a mistake. This is probably one of the best courses that I've ever played. You get a taste of everything. Seaside fairways, par 3s over rocks, one of the best par 5s in Europe. I would come back to St. Andrews just to play this again.
  • A jewel of a golf course on the east coast of Scotland. Rated as one of the best in the world.
  • One of the best courses in Scotland and thats saying a lot. New course with ocean vistas and some width so you can enjoy the strategy of the design.
