Kingsbarns 24/05/2020

2nd Fife - Best in Area 7th Scotland Ranking 14th Britain & Ireland Ranking 43rd World Ranking
Arguably the best of all the "new" courses in Scotland. Beautiful and fun. The holes are excellent. It is a little to "American" for my taste and the lack of history keep...

Luffness New 18/12/2019

8th Lothians - Best in Area 46th Scotland Ranking
Fairly flat and not terribly interesting. The course is in one of the finest golfing areas in the world and honestly does not compete with the best in this area. This sai...

St Andrews (Eden) 18/12/2019

16th Fife - Best in Area 79th Scotland Ranking
I hate to admit that I was a bit snobbish and did not play the Eden for many years, feeling that it was a lesser course. The starter is located on the other side of town...

St Andrews (Jubilee) 18/12/2019

8th Fife - Best in Area 47th Scotland Ranking

Tain 18/12/2019

This historic Old Tom Morris design is fun and interesting. It opened in 1890. Old Tom could only find 15 green sites so it played as a 15 hole course for 30+ years. Star...

I had heard about Brora being the home of the James Braid society and having electric wires surrounding the greens to keep the sheep and cattle out. My expectation was a...

Crail (Balcomie) 28/11/2017

13th Fife - Best in Area 67th Scotland Ranking
This is a must play for anyone in Fife. A classic "old school" links course with some of the best scenery in the world. There are several short holes and some are in clos...
