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 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.

We were recently staying at The Fairmount St Andrews Bay and we were hoping to play golf but there was a competition on at the 2 courses and a friend offered to arrange a round at the Duke. Well having played around 150 rounds this year at some very good course both abroad and also in the UK I can... More

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

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
