Hidden in the shadow of it's illustrious neighbour it would be easy to pass this by, don't. No it's doesn't have the history and atmosphere of the Old and you don't get the butterflies stood on the 1st or 17th tees but make no mistake this is a quality links on the same land as the old.

Played on a Sunday, book in, starter etc..., were all great, we were allowed to play off white tees as we are all good players. If I am really honest, our group were disappointed with the greens, with deep scarification scars over them, making it impossible to hole a putt with confidence. In our view not a patch of The...

This is a great track to add to the Old Course experience. This was 1 of the 5 courses we played and I ranked it number 2 behind the Old Course. We were really lucky as the day we played the course the wind was no a factor but still this is a keeper and fun to play.

Played here years ago now back for a second try. The course is alright, but not as good as others in the area. The cours is ok if not a bit bland. Weather was great but feel it now shows its age and you can see it has been around for a while. The greens were ok, the layout not... More

A really great course, in good shape and somewhat challenging. We played it immediately after our Old Course round and thus maybe something of an anti-climax. Still, the New Course is over a century old and thus not so New. This epitomising the history of this area.

We had an excellent round here during our pre-Christmas holiday to St Andrews. We arrived without a booking, and after using the clubhouse facilities to change etc., were quickly allocated a tee time. The course took 3.5 hrs to play, and we were lucky to have chosen a day of sunny weather and slight less breeze, which made the whole... More

To start for a great golf experience the new course is helpful. But the next day or a day after you have to play the traditional Old Course.

Strong winds made the New Course even more challenging than it already is. Great experience though, this will not have been the last time we went to play.

Not quite as old as the Old Course but just as challenging and much less money to play. A very good test of golf and look out if the wind is up.
