Disgraceful pace of play and over grown rough

Beautiful setting for a course and fairways and greens in good condition. The rough was ridiculous though, almost impossible to find a ball only 1 or 2 feet in and even if tou foind it the grass was so thick and long you couldnt backswing through it to try hit your ball.
Not the courses fault but two fourballs of rhe same group were 3-4 teetimes ahead of us and queued the ebtire course back, nearly 5 hours for us to complete a two ball, the twoball infromt left after 14 holes they were so fed up. Disappointed in the poor rough condition and no marshall to check pace of play as i was really looking forward to playing the course and had driven 2 hours each way to play there.

Amazing Course

Awesome seaside views including the cathedral in St Andrews in the distance.

Course is in immaculate shape and the greens were true & decent speed - any faster would not be enjoyable if the wind blows.

Staff was very helpful & friendly. The clubhouse restaurant/ bar was open but restricted due to COVID. Still managed a nice coffee and enjoyed the panoramic views.

The layout is very challenging, but never unfair. Greens always have an opening to run up a shot! If you are off course, the native grasses are extremely tough - provided you are lucky enough to find the ball.

Great location - great vistas - lovely holes

Fantastic views, particularly as from hole 7 onwards. Great variety of holes. All-round a brilliant course and a MUST play one. A bargain at £ 45.00. Amazing value!

Slow play and poor greens

Unfortunately our four ball were stuck behind a three ball after hole three and all the way until the 18th waiting on every tee and most approach shots! The slow play was not checked at anytime during our round. A little frustrating but just manageable.

The course layout and facilities etc are excellent however upon arrival we were informed that some work had taken place on the greens a few weeks ago, the greens were very poor and spoiled it a bit for our group. It would have been good to know this prior to booking as the value for money took a bit of a dent because of this hence my rating!

Not fit

Having been shown the greens, decided the Kittocks was not fit to play so opted to play Torrance instead. That was OK but greens very slow. General air of tattiness about.

Fairmont - Kittocks

In a nutshell, Fantastic. Having played the Torrance 2 weeks earlier , I knew what to expect from the facilities, which are excellent , however I had a pre conceived idea it was not as good as the Torrance , I was wrong! The course is the best I have ever played. The condition is excellent , the greens were lush and brilliant. This is a links course and on the day the wind was with me , I can only imagine what it would be like on a typical Scottish day! This oozed class and if you play straight and play course management there is much rewards to be taken from this gem of a golf course. Unlike the Torrance , the Kittocks runs along the coastline, the views and setting are spectacular. It’s a long course, and you must avoid the rough at the sides of the fairway at your peril. This has the feel of a PGA golf course and is simply awesome, Highly recommend.

Incredible golf course

The course is 2nd to none! So many brilliant holes with world class views. We played a 4ball 2v2 losers buying beers and food afterward at the restaurant clubhouse. 4 pints of beer and a cheese/ meat platter to share (3bits of cheese, and a few slices of cured meat) was very tasty but at a cost of nearly £50 was a shocker! Lucky the course was so good that this was quickly forgotten. We are now looking to book the Torrance course ASAP, if this is even half as good as the kittocks we will have another great day.
