If visiting St Andrews do not just get stuck playing the Links courses. The Torrance is an excellent course in excellent condition. The greens are as good as any in St Andrews. The guys in the golf shop, John, Andrew and Dan are friendly and knowledgeable and go out there way to accommodate you.

We played the Torrance course during Open week and the twilight deal was great value. Was a windy afternoon but just what links golf should be !. Course was in excellent condition, testing but fun. Would love to try the sister course and will be back for sure. But - special mention for all of the staff - in pro... More

Groupon 2 for 1 voucher turned into a great day out . The Torrance course is excellent and was in perfect condition. We had dinner the the clubhouse which was excellent and value for money , not expensive. I will be back to check out the sister course The Kittocks in 2015.

I recently had the pleasure of playing on the Torrence course. The weather was perfect and definitely enhanced the occasion. The views looking over the bay and back onto St Andrews were breath taking. I thought the course was in good condition. I would recommend anyone to play on this course. I will be back in the future.

We played the course in late May and paid £40 per person, which is OK value for money. The course is good quality and well maintained, but no holes stick out in my mind and that is the problem with the course. Most of the holes are unremarkable and similar. Just a bunch of par 4s and 5s going back... More

Not as tight as The Kittocks but great condition with fast greens and if you leave it to late, you can get great deals.

Great build up , fantastic views sadly wasted as the course was in very poor condition ,greens are cored , rock hard and lack any form of consistency. Lots of bunkers GUR ..never worth the price ..Sorry Sam

After passing by the Torrance course for years on the way to the more established St Andrews courses i finally teed off there this morning. First of all what a fabulous course and in near perfect condition (greens had been tined a while back), i played off the championship tees and if you need 509 yrd par 4s! then crack... More
