Located nine miles from St Andrews, Kingsbarns only opened in 2000 but in that short time has established itself as one of the best and scenically beautiful courses anywhere.
Yet it is playable, and enjoyable, by all standards of golfer. The quartet of holes from 12-15 stands comparison with any stretch in the world, comprising a par five that hugs the shoreline, a short but tricky par three, a short and cunningly bunkered, driveable par four and a par three over water that is rapidly becoming one of the most photographed holes of all time.
There is a comparative absence of bunkers and gorse but the large, undulating greens offer a stern defence. Always in superb condition because it closes during winter, Kingsbarns is, simply, magnificent.
