We played this course in the wind and rain and it was very difficult. .It was made more difficult because the rental clubs were not great. We expected more after having excellent rental clubs at other locations in St. Andrew's. While the clubhouse was nice, the staff was not very welcoming. The course itself has some great views at places... More

Came to this course after playing 3 of the St Andrews links courses but this is a totally different test. The day was very windy and cool the greens were like glass and the hazards were excellently placed. I'd like to play again with less wind but it'll test every pary of your game and your head.

Preferences are always subjective, and what pleases me may not please you. I like oranges, you like apples: does that mean that apples or oranges are preferable - or does it mean they are different? This is a links style course on a cliff-top setting. From some parts of the course, the views are limited - but you have come... More

This was a little bit out of town but very worth the drive. A fun course to play and in excellent condition. Fantastic clubhouse with a great restaurant.

4th march 2014. Clubhouse closed, pro shop closed, we had to start at 7th hole, most bunkers I saw had no sand, were g.u.r., now I struggle to remember any outstanding features on the course, other than good greens. It doesn't feel like links ground, (came away covered in mud), and I don't see raised greens with cavernous bunkers in... More

Played 17th Jan Having played the best courses in the area over the past three years, a friend and I decided to try the Torrance as it was one of the few who were playing full green, slightly restricted tees, and no fairway mats in January. We paid the winter rate on teeofftimes.com of £40 each, although it is reduced... More

Fantastic course, beautiful greens and narrow fairways. Hit the fairways or you are lost! Better second time.

Having played the lesser known Kittocks course the previous day we were extremely disappointed in this course. Very surprised that Sam Torrance is prepared to put his name to this very ordinary and highly over priced course. Staff were friendly, facilities are good and course was in reasonable condition but the layout and design of the course (particularly the front... More

Surprisingly poorly designed considering I assume it has Sam Torrance's name (?) associated with it. The condition of the course was also at the other end of the scale to Kings Barns and The Castle course which were in great shape. But the Torrance had patchy fairways, slow bumpy greens and unkept bunkers. Unacceptable for August. Overall it was uninspiring,... More
