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.

Had a great day playing the Kittocks course at the Fairmont St Andrews. Some marvellous holes with spectacular views across the bay. When we finished our round we planed to have a quick shower, but unfortunately there were no towels available. I asked in the pro shop and after around a 10 min wait, still nothing. I asked again and was told they couldn't reach housekeeping and were then planning to go themselves to collect, which would have been at least another 15mins. The locker room/shower area was looking a bit grubby anyway, so we decided not to wait and went on our way. Apart from that, all good.

Over the last 10 years I have played this course 5, or 6 times going back to the original Devlin course layout. Every time I play it it gets better and better. This year the greens were the best I have ever seen them, well paced and true. The addition of railway sleepers in the face of some of the fairway bunkers is attractive and helps to frame the hole. Look forward to playing the Torrance next time round.

I had played the Torrance course two years ago, and had thought - as it had not been used to stage tournaments - that the Kittocks might be inferior. It certainly isn't. There are some very clever 'risk and reward' holes and the views are spectacular. A very stiff breeze (at least 'two clubs') added to the challenge. Staff in the pro shop were very friendly too.

What a great experience! If it's your first time playing this course, forget the power cart or( buggy as called in the UK) & walk the course and get a caddy. The caddy is worth the $ and will save you strokes.

The course is normally very good. You can choose your level of challenge by playing from a wide range of different tees. For my round, there was lots of unrepaired pitch marks and some of the fairways are getting redone.
