We aren't golfers, but were staying very close by and fancied lunch at the Duke's clubhouse to enjoy the fabulous view of St Andrews. We weren't disappointed. The service was very friendly and efficient, the food was very tasty and the portions extremely generous. It was quiet, because so early in the season. Recommended.

Partner played here as part of discounted deal with Old Course Hotel. Got a cart thrown in which I enjoyed driving around. Holes were beautiful and club house was lovely. Not as iconic as the Old Course but still good.

We stayed at the Old Course Hotel (that review is separate) and we're so glad we got the "Stay and Play" package where a round of golf at the Dukes was included. It's such a beautifully maintained course, the staff is friendly and makes sure to give you everything you'd need and my husband ended up leaving a club somewhere... More

Had a round on Sunday after a wet Saturday evening so course was very wet underfoot. I had played a number of years ago and had not enjoyed the course, I remember it being a long walk, especially 17, course has changed since and much more enjoyable. A good layout, decent greens and nice condtions. Would happily play again, especially... More

Course layout is fine but a bit ordinary considering the other courses in the "Links stable". Old, New and Castle courses are all vastly superior - can't comment on the others as I haven't played them. Hospitality was good in the clubhouse although atmosphere left something to be desired as there was hardly anybody there - I think that they... More

One of the best golf courses in the St Andrews area. Went for a golf outing with friends and had a brilliant day out. From arrival we were well looked after by the staff, from the pro-shop to the starters who gave us a vast amount of useful information about the course and the facilities and some great local banter....

The course was great and interesting as a non links course. Pro shop service was good however food supply was slow and took over half an hour to arrive which caused some concern as we did not have enough time to practice prior to the round.

The Golf course has a beautiful layout and offers amazing views over the bay of St. Andrews. The course is very well maintained. The Greens and Fairways were in an excellent condition. Every whole is different and therefore interesting to play, since no whole repeats itself. I am wondering why this Course ist not ranked higher in the Top 100... More
