Another in the line of great links. Enjoyed the caddies and the setting. It was a true test of your game. It was raining on and off but this is what you expect for Scottish golf.

Superb course, great condition and will be enjoyed by all golfers. It is certainly a challenge which, is exactly what it should be and with the choice of tees the course is as long as you want to make it. The guys in the pro shop and starters box go that bit extra to make you welcome and more importantly... More

Great welcome, the staff really know what you need on a trip like this, no stuffiness about the club whatsoever, buggies a bit expensive at £40 but you do need one as green to tee is a long way on some holes, due to having to pass the black tees which at 7,600yds means they are a long way from...

OK I am a member here and live on the course, but .... this is one you have to play when in St Andrews. Located on the hill outside the town, this is a parkland/heathland course with echoes of Gleneagles and Rosemount. Used to be muddy and tight but redesign and drainage have improved it out of all recognition -... More

Very difficult course - tight driving holes, links style course. Beautiful views from all areas of the course. Well maintained and worth the challenge

The Duke's improves every year and due to the glorious weather it was in the best condition I have ever played it in. A warm welcome awaits with excellent facilities in the clubhouse. The course has some stunning holes, notably "Denbrae" and "Braw View" which has to be one of the best golf holes anywhere!
