I found this a very disappointing course. I was very much looking forward to playing it after reading so many rave reviews. I have played it twice now, once in February and found a great layout in winter condition. I came back in July, and have to say that it was probably in better condition in mid Winter!Although there are a few good holes on the course (the 10th and 17th being my favourites), with excellent views out over St Andrews and the sea, there are also many monotonous holes. My big gripe though was that the yellow tees were so far in advance of the whites / blacks that the real challenge was taken out of some potantially great holes, notably the par 3s. The clubhouse was totally overpriced and both times I have played there, rounds have taken in excess of 5 hours (which admittedly may cloud my judgment!).
