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.

Played in a four ball on a Saturday , late morning . After a few balls on the range we were off . This was a very relaxed round with no significant waiting . The course was in great condition and created several challenges depending which tees you choose . As the headline says , with this course so long... 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...

The course was in tip top condition... More

Played this course in early June 2015 and I can honestly say its one of the best courses I have ever played. Great holes, great condition, superb greens, The clubhouse was excellent for lunch and the staff throughout the complex were first class.

I played here on Sunday morning. No crowds, very relaxed and friendly. The course was in excellent condition and was as nice a parkland course as there is around. At £95, it is a very welcome bargain, or at least what passes for bargains in this area. I look forward to playing it again.

A fine Scot, retired RAF officer, and friend for 30 years who we hadn't seen in that same amount of time, invited me to play The Duke's. While we only played 9 holes, I got a real good taste for what Mr Kohler (Whistling Straights) had in mind when he bought this course. It was a beautiful windy, sunny day.... More
