St. Michaels Golf Club
St. Michael's Golf Club sits atop Gallow Hill, providing spectacular views past the River Eden to the historic buildings of St. Andrews. The course sprawls across a prehistoric settlement that is protected by Historic Scotland. The terrain is an interesting mix of wooded parkland and undulating heathland with a well-draining sandy base. The golf course features small greens and narrow fairways that place a premium on accuracy. While it may not have the prestige or the classic links layout of St. Andrews, St. Michael's Golf Club offers just as formidable a test. The challenges begin immediately on the first hole, an uphill par 4 with a fairway that slopes right to left. St. Michael's signature hole is the par-3 15th, which many consider to be the most demanding short hole in Fife. There is a large dip to the left and rear of the green, a bunker to the front right, and out-of-bounds to the left and on the railway line behind.

Really enjoyable course. Challenging first 4 holes. Hilly in places but each time with a really interesting hole to suit. General pace of play good, but let down by a 4 ball stubbornly refusing to let us play through 5 holes from home. Limited interaction with the facilities given the current restrictions but overall friendly and in line with expectations. Excellent value for money and well worth the green fee. Will be back.
St Michael’s Golf Course
Played with a 2 ball with my friend , and was not disappointed , This is simply a fantastic Golf Course. The course layout and condition for the time of year is outstanding. Some of the holes are breath taken , and have to be seen to be believed. From the start, there is a very good clubhouse with friendly staff and a very good home made food menu. The 1st hole is wide and expansive and then hole after hole there is something to keep your interest and are tricky but very enjoyable. The 15th, 16th and 17th are a fantastic way to finish off this absolute diamond of a course, it really is a must play course!
Golf Weekend Away
Great forgiving course. Not much to write home about but I enjoyed the simplistic design. Back 9 was more interesting which I enjoyed. Would recommend. Hope to play again.
Gem of a course
I made a last minute booking to play this course and I am so glad I did. The course was generally in great condition. The staff and members are very friendly and helpful and I would like to thank them for their contribution to a very enjoyable day.
This course is superb, a right challenge but fun, enjoyable and talk about value for money, would recommend anybody going to St Andrews\Carnoustie to make time and play this hidden gem, cant fault it and cant wait to olay it again
Played this course many times before and have never seen it as good as it was to play today
Terrific wee course
Played here for the first time, and it wont be the last. Terrific wee golf course in great condition
Couple of great holes
Great course with two fantastic holes . 15th short par 3 from tee well above green. . 16th holes difficult drive over a brow with trees each side. worth a visit. Great value
Went on a blustery Saturday afternoon greeted by a long uphill par 4 against a 45 mile wind thinking oh dear- but had a great time, ok almost blown off the tee a few times but a nice course with some lovely holes and great views. And then comes the final 4 holes that are full of character, loved it and almost forgot the wind - great place need to come back on a sunny calm day to enjoy fully
Played this course 4 times over the past 4 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe not the magnificent views of the links courses in and around St Andrews but lovely testing holes especially when windy.
Would recommend St Michaels for all handicap golfers
This course has great views
Get the negatives out the way. Caught the course on the wrong day/time. Slow visitors with buggies holding the whole course up and a three ball of unfriendly members in the group behind.
That aside this is a terrific little challenge. Small greens, play for the front and a great closing stretch. 15th is the signature hole but don't over club as you'll end up on the railway line! 16th is a great challenge of a tee shot and again watch out for the trains!
Overall tyou are spoiled for choices in this area but St Michael's is well worth a visit.
Course was enjoyable but quite hilly. Fairways a bit patchy in places and greens ok.
