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.

All staff at the clubhouse and starters office were brilliant couldn't do enough for us. All in all highly recommended even if you just go for a meal... More

Played 2 twilight rounds and enjoyed both. Weather was kind to us. Staff were very friendly. Both sons enjoyed their games, as did their dad. Beautiful course. Will most certainly be back. Once my golf gets better I might even manage to play a round.

The restaurant has stunning views. The food though was very dry. More worryingly we were not asked once if our meal was ok. When we had finished, my husband had to say that the mushy peas were not good I was not even asked why I had only taken one bite out of the tuna open sandwich.

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...
