Golf courses at Fairmont St Andrews
Opened just one year after the Torrance Course at Fairmont St Andrews and tougher of the two, the Kittocks is another clifftop stunner with spectacular views of St Andrews Bay and the Auld Grey Toon just 3 miles away. The most striking holes are those along the cliff edge, and with two man-made lakes mixed in with double greens and deep pot bunkers, the Kittocks is a great blend of American-style with the tradition of golf at St Andrews. The Fairmont is a really impressive 36-hole golf resort.
You would think that opening a relatively new course at the home of golf would be a daunting challenge, however with the Torrance Course at Fairmont St Andrews you have a spectacular clifftop links that fits very comfortably amongst its more famous neighbours. The views of St Andrews Bay and the Auld Grey Toon are breath-taking from this vantage point, and at 7200 yards off the tips, the Torrance is a stern test of golf. An Open Championship Qualifying course that ranks top 60 in Scotland.
