“The best golf courses in the world”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The review title says it all. I have played golf all over the world and just love to come back to this area. It's links golf as it should be. A difficult test in, often, difficult conditions. Fantastic.

“Lunch”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Took some friends with us for lunch. You get a great view from the clubhouse & great for impression first timers. I had mussels & crusty bread & they were fab. The creamy sauce was amazing so tasty. Others had sandwiches. All looked lovely & served with crisps. Recommend for lunch

Golfing the New Course is a real pleasure. It is challenging, interesting, and easy to get on in February and early March

“Great golf”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I went to St Andrews wellbread on the old course, and I met a gentleman called dusty in a pub in golf place who travels the world relating stories of St andrews and it's history,... But he told me of the new course and inferred I was in for a treat....he was absolutely spot on...what a wonderful links course, interesting beautifully kept and maintained, a great set up tricky bunkers and fabulous greens....a real golfing treat as the man said....new course by the way...it's only five years younger the it's famouse old sibling, and some would say more testing. A real pleasure to play.

“Tougher than the Old Course”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The travesty of this course is that it was built a few hundred years too late to get the credit it deserved. This was a tougher challenge than the Old Course, tighter fairways, tougher rough and gorse and some really challenging greens. Every trip to St Andrews must include a round at the New Course.
