“Cracking course”

The Eden Course at St. Andrews Links
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Only slightly more forgiving than its contemporaries on the seaward side of the Links, the Eden Course was built in 1914 by Harry S. Colt whose use of natural boundaries and severe bunkers provides a course full of character.

Hidden gem of the Links courses. Staff are brilliant and service is with a broad smile. Nothing is too much trouble

“Average at best”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

There is talk of doing away with this course (at some point) and expanding the property...for what purpose, I never really could get a handle on. It looks nice and was pretty straightforward, but much much much better choices at out there if you are traveling this far for exciting, memorable golf

“Absolutely great for those who are not scratch golfers”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Yes, we found the course challenging, but as it is not the Old Course we were not paired up and were able to enjoy the gorse , which lives on golf balls, and the undulating greens

“Nice course”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Shorter than some of the other St Andrews courses, the Eden is still interesting to play. Not many long holes, but still some testing sections. Can get congested if it's busy, but the rangers do a good job of keeping people moving and letting faster groups play through.
