Type
Perched atop the cliffs that are situated above St. Andrews Bay, Fairmont St. Andrews offers two stunning traditional links golf courses, the Torrance and the Kittocks. In a region famous for being the home of golf, both courses manage to hold their own against the area's other links courses. Playing the Torrance Course, you would never believe that it was once flat farmland. The designer, Sam Torrance, transformed the course into a challenging links layout that looks as though it has been there forever. The classic Scottish bunkers that are strategically placed throughout provide a formidable test. Be careful from the 14th green to the final hole or you might find yourself tumbling down the rocky cliffs. This dramatic final stretch of holes is especially scenic and challenging with greens that play right along the edge of the water.

Torrance Course

Played the Torrance Course on a very blustery July day. Course in wonderful condition and a real test of links golf in the wind. Views stunning and a great round of golf. Staff very helpful.

Beautiful scenic golf cours

Great golf course while visiting St. Andrews. Used the golfboards which were a lot of fun. Some amazing holes which rival Pebble Beach in their beauty.

Great Value

Course always has a bit of wind because it sits up on the hill very exposed. Today wasn't too bad although it seem like all the long par fours were into the wind. Not a lot of players on the course, so we moved around very easily. No one pushing and no holdups. Was told the Torrance had fewer blind shots than the Kittocks but maybe not quite as spectacular views.but still pretty good on a nice picturesque day. Excellent value for the money. Would recommend as a break if some of the other courses aren't available.

A Good Round of Golf

This is one of my favourite courses. Although there are some long holes, the par threes are all relatively short.

Plenty of variety and accuracy off the tee is necessary.

Great value for money

This was our first round of this trip. We didn't wait more than a few seconds to hit any shot. Good speed. Course with very little in way of blind shots which is good. Overall we booked it as price was right and we thought it would be a good Scottish links icebreaker. we were right we to both

St Andrews Fairmont

Just an unbelievable days golf fir £25.00. Staff were fantastic. Course first class, weather in December like August. 61 and no wind. Perfect winter golf , course empty. One downside, very little available at clubhouse. Had to go to St Andrews fir lunch and cup of T. Top hotel could do better to support wonderful golf facility. RDC

Great condition for late Oct

This course was in excellent condition for late October. Greens were superb running true. Fairways were as good as you would play in the high season. Tees too were in great condition. Clubhouse and pro shop staff were friendly and helpful. Drinks were a bit pricey. However overall a great experience. Looking forward to returning soon.

Jeniec Golf Tour

A lovely sunny Autumnal day, which certainly helps - especially with the fantastic location with sea views and grand old St Andrews in near proximity.

The three of us loved it and will certainly come back to play the other (Kittocks) course ASAP.
