Great fun on an interesting course

Our only moan would be the carry required from the ladies 12th tee.

Out of keeping with the rest of the course

Great range of par threes

Well worth the £41 through golf now

5 star golf, from the welcome reception to the 19th hole. This is one of the very best courses in St Andrews, a real test of golf requiring every club in your bag, magnificent greens and outstanding views over St Andrews Bay. Tee off times got me a great deal on the green fee, superb value for money!

I have lived half my life in Scotland before moving overseas so coming back to Scotland to play Fairmont Kittocks I was very surprised at the perfect weather conditions - sunny, blue skies, no wind.

I had played the Torrance course a few years earlier and was very impressed so was keen to try Kittocks. The course was wonderful with some stunning views and challenging hole layouts. On a Monday afternoon it was quiet on the course so we had no holdups at all. The course conditions were very good and the greens were in good shape.

It really was a perfect day out with the incredible weather conditions, a great course and a very comfortable clubhouse with friendly staff.

Loved playing this course, great condition and scenery beautiful. Had a slow 4 ball in front but they let us play through at 3rd hole so after that pace was fine. Would definitely recommend to other golfers.
