What a fantastic course, and in lovely condition in mid October. Our first round in a nine day trip to St Andrews, and it did not disappoint...in fact at the end of the trip it was still one of my three favorite courses played, the others being Gleneagles King's Course and Royal Aberdeen. Beautiful fall colors on the trees lining the fairways, touch of heathland here and there...reminded me very much of Blackwolf Run. If ever I make it back to St Andrews, The Duke's will be at the top of my list...I had also played the Old/New/Eden/Castle courses as well on this, so that should give an idea of my personal preference. I've lived in England now going on four years and the heathland courses are my favorites...Sunningdale, Woodhall Spa, Walton Heath, Notts, The Duke's, Luffenham Heath, Woodbridge, & Ipswich just to name a few.
