Owner description: A traditional Scottish links golf course with sea views over 1.5 miles of coastline ranked in the top 60 courses worldwide and top 20 in Europe.
Reviewed June 23, 2012

While a touch pricey, Kingsbarns Golf Links provide Golfers of all skill sets one of the finest challenges to be found in the UK. It's difficult to imagine this course wasn't also formed by the same seaside forces which make links golf so appealing just down the road at St Andrews. You'll truly be amazed at the effects of wind & water on your round. A driver, 3 wood, PW to an upwind par 4 leads to a bogey, followed by another par 4 played with a 4 iron, SW birdie in the opposite direction.
As you make your way to the back nine, the spectacular views out to the rocky North Sea coast will make concentrating on your game difficult! Well worth the cost of a Caddy to help find the errant shot, calculate the windy yardage's & read the undulating greens!!

Fabulous Course - in great condition when we played it.
Definitely add it to your itinerary if taking a golfing holiday in Fife.
Its the best course I have played in Scotland. American golfers will also like this course as it has well groomed fairways for a links course.

What an incredible layout for a golf course, even though we played in gale force winds... Beautiful club house and awesome merchandise in their golf shop. Caddies were amazing as well. We loved our dream vacation!!!

Views of the ocean from most every hole. Absolutely spectacular! One guy in our party said it was more beautiful than Pebble Beach. Played it twice, wish we had played it a third time. A MUST if you are anywhere near St. Andrews.

If you visit Fife to play golf be sure to include this course on the 'Must Play' at all costs list. Not cheap to play but worth every penny
