Kingsbarns Golf Links, St. Andrews

4.6
#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. This site is a must for golf-enthusiasts--the price reflects the quality of the course and service. Stop and relax at the clubhouse, enjoy a drink, and watch other golfers complete the 18th hole.

  • The place is beautiful, worth a visit. However, the cafe is not great. Mince and tatties or a soup, but they got sold out quite quickly. Cakes and scones are good. Coffee not great, from one of those machines with buttons for the drinks, get tea.
  • Excellent golf course coupled with very friendly staff both in the club house and on the course
  • 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.
  • A world class golf course with a restaurant with beautiful views well worth a visit.
  • Great course, great people. Scottish weather.
