The Strathtyrum Course (Par 69)

The Balgove Course (Par 30)
Where the children of St Andrews learn the game. After upgrading in 1993, this 9 hole course measures 1530 yards.
The Dukes Course (Par 72)
Measures 7,271 yards at par 72, and is the first an only parkland golf course in St. Andrews -- all the others are classic links courses. It's also the longest inland golf course in Scotland.
Kingsbarns Course (Par 72)
7,100 yards, is the only links course in St. Andrews built in this century and it is becoming very popular. It opened in June 2000.
And - opened in 2001 & 2002, both St Andrews Bay courses have matured well given their excellent start in life at the hands of Messers Gene Saracen, Bruce Devlin and Sam Torrance. Whichever course you choose, you are guaranteed a good round - although higher handicappers might find the Devlin a tad stretching.
