Fantastic course in great condition, some hidden bunkers and quirky holes so would recommend a stroke saver as a minimum. Great clubhouse facilities,friendly pro shop and the lunch experience was very traditional with very attentive staff. Would recommend a visit.

As an American student in Glasgow, I was a bit nervous about going alone to play such a storied golf course. I love the sport and the history alone here was too much allure; I had to play it. It's quite easy to get to from Glasgow, about 14 quid for a round trip train ticket and the course is... More

Play with a caddy for sure. Quirky fun and you can play it very fast. They give you a souvenir photo for your group which I think is a great tradition! Very nice staff

Original site for the Open Championship, this is one of the top courses in Scotland. Played in poor weather, but still found interesting and playable. A few blind shots turn some people off, but don't let them scare you away. Too bad they don't have room to host the Open, as I think it's a much better course than the... More

This should be so much better known. A really lovely old links course which doesn't look too difficult but requires accuracy and thought. Clubhouse experience absolutely fantastic - good food, lovely bar room overlooking the 18th green.

Very traditionall and sometimes a bit quirky links course. Not an easy course but as long as you can keep it fairly straight you don't have to hit it mile to enjoy yourself. Welcoming and service minded staff all around. A genuine, old school, golf experience.

Not to many words can describe being able to play where the 1st Open Championship was held. In any case, this golf course did not disappoint. Recommend getting a Caddy as there are many blind shots and carry distances that are incredibly important to know before taking a shot. Unless you drive the ball straight, hit a low iron -... More

Visited her with 11 others on Friday 12th September for a golf stag day. Can honestly say that not one hole disappointed. From the first hole which is exceptionally narrow to the third which has the most ridiculously sized bunker in driving distance to seventeen where you need to hit your approach over a couple of humps, (has a slight...

Ok, so the first hole runs along the railroad track and looks undistinguished. Don't be fooled! This course where the first Open Championship was held in 1860 will break your back unless your shots are straight and true. Best advice I can give you? Take a caddy and listen to him!
