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

Played the Kittocks yesterday, after playing the Castle the day before. Started off with bacon roll, bacon same texture as beef jerky, obviously been in oven all night. No fresh orange. (Castle breakfast delicious). Off to locker room, floor coverered in dry grass, toilets filthy paper towels strewn everywhere. The third locker I tried worked. Locker room needs lots of... More

Played five times whilst away with a round on the Torrance in decent conditions being probably the fairest test of golf we had. Course was in good condition, some very interesting holes (the test is always what you can remember a few weeks after about the layout and I still have a good sense of the course we played) with...

Good course but not worth anywhere near the money that was charged compared to the likes of The Castle, Old and New Courses St Andrews.

The day we played started out beautiful and then turned to cloudy rainy toward the end of the round. As usual in Scotland by time we reached the 17th and 18th holes the weather had cleared. The course is enjoyable but was not as demanding on the front nine as we expected for this caliber of course. The back nine... More
