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.

Who needs St Andrews

Yes who needs St Andrews when you have this little gem next to Leuchars!

Up from Norfolk with my sons and played this course today for the second time in a week.

Great value, very friendly helpful staff even gave us the back nine again for free so 27 holes played today!

Course is in fantastic condition & each hole asks questions & very testing .

Will be returning next year.....

Lovely course

First time playing this course, loved it. Course was very dry due to the long hot summer so got a great run. Greens were in good condition. Got round very quickly as a single player. Would recommend this course and would play again.

Great course

Loved playing here. Recent hot weather meant ball was running for miles. Hard holes in back 9 made my stableford points not so good! Would recommend playing here.

Run Run Run

Like most courses at present fairways are burnt to a crisp and the ball just keeps running. A different kind of challenge. However greens are still excellent and course enjoyable as usual with great views over to St Andrews.

Open Week

As usual, staff and members very friendly.

Outing in front slowed things down a little but not frustratingly so.

If you’re in the area, this is a great “alternative” to all the Links.

New vs Old

Front 9 very open and modern, back 9 more woodland and traditional not to mention tricky. Great fun to play and a lovely contrasting challenge between front and back 9's.

Sun Sun Sun.

Good layout with plenty interesting holes. Very dry as would be expected at this time with no rain for 3 weeks but course and greens in good condition. Always enjoyable.

WOW!

Played this course for the 2nd year running and i want to keep coming back, this course is an absolute must play for any golfer, and dont let the price of the green fees put you off, £10 on a tuesday! What a bargain! And this course is worth a lot more i guarentee it. Front 9is newer than the back and it shows at the moment, but its a good test, but when you hit the original course, the back 9 well WOW is all i can say! What a stunning set of holes, perfect fairways and true greens.

Everyone who has played this course with me (8 players each year) have said how good it is, and they want to come back again, and we will be.
