A scant six miles down the coast from the most revered links golf course in the world, the Old Course at St. Andrews, lies a golf course many believe will one day dominate the links landscape: Kingsbarns Golf Links. Despite the fact that the layout is still in its infancy, having just opened in July of 2000, Kingsbarns has been heralded as the last great links property available for development in Scotland, as the end-all of Scottish links golf. In its first two years in existence, Kingsbarns was named Best New International Course (2000) by Golf Digest, 46th Best Course in the World (2002) by Golf Magazine, and served as co-host of the Inaugural Dunhill Links Championship (2001, along with The Old Course and Carnoustie). -- Kiel Christianson

    A beautiful drive from St. Andrews and a beautiful course as I drove in. Mist in the AM giving way to sun, some light rain, then more sun and a light breeze. Course was in great condition. Every hold had an amazing view. Fish n chips with beer after the first round. Great service, amazing views, great golf. The best day of golf I have ever had.

    So good I returned to play a second time on my recent trip. Can't say enough about how good this course is ... great (and scenic) layout, challenging but fair, excellent caddies, well conditioned, and great service from the minute you arrive. This is what all golf courses should strive to achieve.
