played here in february and in comparison with st andrews condition very poor, and only a mile or two up the road. Not worth the cost compared with jubilee or new course,

Booked for a Sunday morning £33 per person. The course conditions are fantastic with fast greens and the ball running down fairways when you hit them. I would eat before you arrive as there seemed little or no choice of food at breakfast time. There...More

The course was in excellent condition and a great test of my game. Especially the bunkers! The meal in the club house was excellent. A good place to eat, although slightly expensive, worth paying the extra just for the magnificent views across the bay.

Nicely maintained course. Coursebook was not included in the fee. The restaurant was ok but low on variety in snacks. Wind was a big factor during play. Great course to play. Casle course is better. And kittcocks has more seaside play.

Played the "Torrance Course" for the 1st time yesterday after having twice chosen to play "Kittocks" rather than here. In all honesty, although I found them both similar in nature, I'd have to say I preferred "Kittocks" ... but the "Torrance" has many good aspects...More

Played here last week, staff very helpful at clubhouse, course is a little longer than kittock, I found the kittocks a more quirky course m, and out the 2 I preferred it, but I'd play the Torrance again.
