Because this course was opened after "The Old Course" in 1895 it Is called the new course. But it is the oldest new course you will ever play. This course is a little more constricted than the Old Course and therefore a little harder. But stay out of the bunkers and it is quite fun. We had great caddies which... More

A fantastic alternative to the Old course set in the heart of the home of golf I have played the New for many many years now and I can categorically say its up there with the best of Links. It looses nothing to the Old course other than name and tradition Great value and condition is always superb. Highly recommend... More

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. If anything its... More

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.
