The Duke's, owned and managed by the Old Course Hotel, is a lush, heathland golf course perched on the hillside just a few minutes from the hotel. Noted in Golf World's Top 100 Courses in the Scotland, this championship 18-hole course has magnificent greens, beautiful fairways, a fleet of electric golf buggies and five tees on every hole, making it most appealing to golfers of all abilities. Don't forget to visit The Duke's Clubhouse, a popular and relaxed dining venue with stunning views of St Andrews and beyond. The award-winning Duke’s Clubhouse offers a hearty selection of traditional food to warm the cockles of any weary golfer’s heart - tune in to the post-golfing analysis over a pint of beer or head on to the deck and catch a few rays of sun with a gin and tonic in hand.

Checked in for a seniors mixed open with my wife during our visit to St Andrews, from arrival to completing the round it was excellent. A great course, excellent organisation by Craig and his team with the start on time. We are looking forward to playing again next year as its now a definite venue for July.

We played in The Duke's mixed pairs competition on 19th July 2016 and it was one of the best days golf I've had. It was also my birthday and the staff at The Duke's went out of their way to make my day very memorable (my daughter had phoned to tell them). They played 'Happy Birthday' over the speakers on...

For four women who never played golf, we had a wonderful golf lesson from Callum. He was patient with us and insightful with his teaching the basics of a proper golf swing. We were encouraged by Callum's positive comments as we left the lessons to continue this sport when we return to the States.

If you’ve had enough of links-style golf (or can;t get on one of the St. Andrew's links) then you should definitely give the Duke’s Course a try. Located on the hills overlooking St. Andrew’s, Duke’s offers stunning views of the town and the North Sea while providing a great golf experience on a course that winds through wooded areas and...

Played in the Senior Fourball on Tuesday and we were blessed with a running course in great weather. Very friendly and professional welcome in the clubhouse and on the tee. Just a pity that we were playing from the green tees which makes the course very short. Overall, a great experience even if our golf was poor.

I recently had the pleasure of playing the Duke's course at St Andrews. I can't believe I hadn't tried it before but I know I will certainly return. The reception in the Pro shop was warm and friendly. We then had the opportunity to hit a few balls on the golf range before returning to the starter's box. Again a... More

Recently hosted our Scottish Autism Golf Day at the Dukes and it was a fantastic success. I'm not too sure what to compliment more the golf course or the staff that made our day run with ease and perfection. There are always a lot of preparations that go into these sort of days but my job was certainly made easier... More

After playing the old course the day before, I thought any course would struggle to impress, I was wrong! From the moment we arrived everything fell perfectly into place,good staff are hard to find,but not here! Negative reviews about golf courses should include the person scorecard!! All 8 of our party enjoyed every aspect of the Dukes experience,even the kippers!!... More

My brother in law and I tried to get an impromptu round of golf in when I was in St Andrews over Easter. We were surprised when we were given short thrift by two of the well known local courses, despite one looking decidedly quiet on the day. The other was clearly busy and fully booked but were unwilling to... More
