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!

The clubhouse at the Dukes is open to everybody not just golfers. Its a nice place to go for lunch because the clubroom has a terrific view over St Andrews and the bay all the way over to the Angus coast. The lunch menu is limited but the food is good and well presented. The bar / restaurant staff were... More

Hidden Gem. Fantastic course with forgiving fairways. 2 very testing par 3's and par 4's. Good test for any golfer regardless of your handicap. Twilight Rates available - first phone the course and enquire on the availability

I have played the Dukes on several occassions . It is becoming a better golf course..however as its inland greens and fairways can be effected by heavy conditions. Lovely Club house and amazing views , but due to its location , never very busy , so lacks a bit of atmosphere . You will need to be a good golfer... More

Absolutely loved this place.. more of an American style course than traditional Scottish links.. reminded me of Pine Valley and Primland. Tough course but fair, and well marked so you can find your way. Some awesome views on the back nine overlooking St. Andrews. The golf shop staff was fantastic, and the starter and folks at the starter shack/10th tee... More
