The Duke's, owned and managed by the Old Course Hotel, is a lush, heathland golf course perched on the hillside just a few minutes from the hotel. Noted in Golf World's Top 100 Courses in the Scotland, this championship 18-hole course has magnificent greens, beautiful fairways, a fleet of electric golf buggies and five tees on every hole, making it most appealing to golfers of all abilities. Don't forget to visit The Duke's Clubhouse, a popular and relaxed dining venue with stunning views of St Andrews and beyond. The award-winning Duke’s Clubhouse offers a hearty selection of traditional food to warm the cockles of any weary golfer’s heart - tune in to the post-golfing analysis over a pint of beer or head on to the deck and catch a few rays of sun with a gin and tonic in hand.

A three ball on an Itison deal just after this years Open at the Old Course. Dukes is IMO, a heathland track, quite long and punishing of any wayward shots. The course was in good condition and the buggies on a damp day were a godsend. It is a longish track and challenging for the higher handicappers amongst us. None... More

Many people I know who've been to St. Andrews -- even a few times -- don't seem to be aware of the Duke's Course. A little over a mile southwest of the Old Course, the Duke's was opened in 1995, and significantly re-done about a decade ago. It's NOT a links course, which may be why people might want to... More

Trip not helped at all by The fact that we hired golf buggy (as its a very long course) only to find that we had... More

There was a warm welcome on arrivaL The locker room is well-appointed with 4 separate shower stalls and plenty of space for visitors to change. The starter was knowledgable and friendly and the course was in great condition. It's pretty well laid out and the length of the holes along with numerous bunkers make it a real challenge for all...
