Fairmont St Andrews Kittocks
Perched atop the cliffs that are situated above St. Andrews Bay, Fairmont St. Andrews offers two stunning traditional links golf courses, the Torrance and the Kittocks. In a region famous for being the home of golf, both courses manage to hold their own against the areas other links courses. Playing the Torrance Course, you would never believe that it was once flat farmland. The designer, Sam Torrance, transformed the course into a challenging links layout that looks as though it has been there forever. The classic Scottish bunkers that are strategically placed throughout provide a formidable test. Be careful from the 14th green to the final hole or you might find yourself tumbling down the rocky cliffs. This dramatic final stretch of holes is especially scenic and challenging with greens that play right along the edge of the water.
Originally opened in 2001 and designed by Bruce Devlin, the coastal Kittocks course has recently been upgraded to consist of 18 challenging holes with spectacular panoramic views of the Eden Estuary and North Sea.
Host to EuroPro Tour events in 2007 and 2009, The Kittocks Course with its dramatic views and undulating terrain can be played from four sets of tees, with golf buggies available, making it ideal for players of all abilities when visiting St Andrews.
