Drumoig Golf Hotel sprawls across 250 acres of rolling countryside inhabited by a variety of different birds and wildlife. The dramatic landscape provides the course with plenty of loch-side fairways and quarry greens. The lochs come into play on three holes, most notably on the challenging par-3 ninth. The difficult tee shot is followed by a tricky shot over the loch in order to reach the green. More advanced golfers will find the back tees provide a good challenge while the front tees are better for beginners. Golfers will also enjoy the views that stretch past St. Andrews Bay and the River Tay to Dundee and Carnoustie. The par-5 fifth is the signature hole of the golf course. The hole, which often plays into prevailing wind, requires a strong drive and a long iron to reach the narrow opening to the green.

The course was in excellent condition bearing in mind being early season and having had a somewhat challenging start to the year. The greens especially good condition and fairly fast for early season. Any time we are in this area we always try and book a round. Thank you for great reception at starters office always friendly and great start to worth while experience.

Played this course in April 1. Weather previous day had been very wet. Despite this the course was in excellent condition and fairly dry underfoot. A good test of golf with some interesting holes particularly around the loch. Reasonably long but not too hilly. Of course hotel staff could be a little more friendly. Would recommend the course if you are in the st Andrews area.

I played in a two ball and we arrived on the first tee at the same time as a 4 ball, who proceeded to ignore us and tee off...We then remained behind them for 7 holes waiting on nearly every shot whilst no effort was made to wave us through..when we spoke to them, one was extremely rude - albeit another one of the group was very apologetic! We played through but it had ruined our enjoyment of the day..

Soon after we had another 4 ball refusing to acknowledge us for the remainder of the round.

SOLUTION ! Why couldn't the starter have suggested we start on the 10th and all the trouble would have been avoided - just a little forethought..

A sign or two reminding golfers of etiquette wouldn't go amiss either, as clearly some visitors there don't have a clue regards etiquette..

Drumoig is well worth a visit during winter months, it is in great condition playing to 17 full greens with the added benefit of (NO MATS REQUIRED) playing to a relatively long and challenging course.

Great value at £15 Green Fee and we hired a buggy for £15 which was also great value.

I would recommend a round to anyone as great value during winter and no mats which is fairly unique selling point. 19th was friendly with food on the go again reasonably priced.

Can not complain about the service, course etc fantastic condition for this time of year. The really annoying and disappointing aspect of the round was repeatedly having golfers cutting across - at least five single or groups of players wandered in front of me or across my fairway to skip holes. I appreciate light may have made some players only play certain holes but this repeatedly happened without even an acknowledgment.

If you are visiting Fife this course is a must to play.

Starting with the welcome and friendliness of the staff and starter which was first class.

The course was in great condition and the Greens were as good as we have played within the last 3 years and we have played some great courses.

Fife had h.ad some very bad weather but you would not have known it from the condition of the course well done to the green staff.

We will be back without a shadow of a doubt.

In excellent condition despite recent weather. Greens were consistent in pace and texture and in excellent condition. Fairways are generous until you come to the water ! Superb value for money and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Special thanks to the people involved at the clubhouse where I had lost my GPS watch and it was returned to me after my round .

Played Drumoig on Sunday 20th Aug. Course was in great shape and very firm despite heavy rain in previous days. Greens were smooth and nice to putt on. Some great features and very interesting holes which have been thoughtfully laid out. Round was slow due to 3 fourballs ahead but did improve slightly on the back 9. The holes with water are great fun and challenging. Only negative, which we were warned about from previous reviews, was the starter who was disinterested and could do with a visit to charm school!

Both fairways and greens in excellent condition. Was quiet so getting round was no problem. Hired a buggy which had seen better days. Couldn't see through windscreen and both steering and clutch were on the point of going. Overall can't complain. Better signage re the visitors changing rooms wouldn't go amiss. Welcome at hotel left a lot to be desired.

Played this course a few times and always enjoyed it. Was here on Sunday 6th August and the lady working in the starters box was very friendly. The only issue was the incredibly slow pace of play but I think this seems to be a tee off times issue where they take bookings 10mins apart without considering stuff like a single player or a twoball being stuck behind 3 x fourballs.

My expectations of Drumoig was that it would be another modern lay out and a long slog. Whilst it was indeed long off the back markers, there was plenty of interest and some really well designed holes on this course. Stand outs were the 9th & 10th where water comes into play, but the rest of the course was very good too. Played with a young lad who was having a practice round ahead of the Scottish boys championship and it was a joy to watch him play. The staff member in the starters hut was really helpful too. All in all an enjoyable days golf & a nice course, would happily go back again.

This is the second time playing. Common factor is slow play. Waiting on every tee to tee off waiting for most approach shots - all the way round. If the pace was quicker we would have avoided the rain.

Course was very nice, second time round the greens were being repaired so a lot of sand, was like chipping onto a trampoline. Green pace varied from lighting quick to putting through tar.

I would recommend the course to people but they would get a warning that the pace of play is very slow.

The etiquette of the players was annoying shouting across fairways etc bottles of alcohol were also found on a couple of tee boxes.

Overal the course is great, the golfers on it, not so much.
