With the greatest of respect to the opinion of the previoys reviewer, Kingsbarns is more than capable of presenting the test required for an Open Championship. You can make Carnoustie impopssible (1999) or playable (2007). You could easily do the same with Kingsbarns. The course layout is quite magnificent. The only hole I don't like is the one the previous reviewer praised, the 11th, as I think the green is totally unnatural. 13th is also not a big favourite of mine, but otherwise this is a treat for any golfer, and has enough variety to satisfy golfers at any level. Brilliant course design is evident on almost every hole, and the wonderful little clubhouse and fantastic upstairs locker rooms make this my favourite course in Scotland - and by golly I've played most of them !! Play Kingsbarns, you will never regret it, this course is destined for great things!
