Rating 75.0
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.
