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. "Kingsbarns Golf Links is, without doubt, the best new golf course I have ever played with views of the sea from every hole complimented by decision-making and strategic layout. It's traditional golf at its best and I don't think you could ever tire of playing such a magnificent Links. Kingsbarns, in my opinion, is one of the great golfing experiences in the world".
There is not much more to say about Kingsbarns except that everyone should play it. It is one of those great courses in the world where the mixture between the course and the club is spot on.
