Set on the cliffs around Kinkell Ness, the Castle Course was built on land used over the centuries for hunting, then farming. The terrain has been sculpted to create a stunning landscape with rolling fairways and severely undulating greens. The course demands bold play as weak shots are punished severely. Incredible views offset the relentless examination.

Panellists’ comments: “Good addition to the golfing Mecca that is St Andrews”; “A place to play fun rather than serious golf”
