Golf Courses

Practice range ½ mile from course

The oldest ‘new’ course in the world, the second course at the Home of Golf was built by the Keeper of the Green, Tom Morris in 1895 and it was imaginatively named to differentiate from its famous neighbor. Boasting undulating fairways and challenging greens, the New Course is a classic test of links golf.

Warm-up swing room, driving nets & putting green

The Championship Course has hosted eight Open Championships, one Women’s British Open and two Seniors Open making it one of the very few to have done so in the UK. It is one of three courses used for the annual Dunhill Links, the others being Kingsbarns and the Old Course in St Andrews.

“Carnoustie is the toughest course anywhere.” – Gary Player

A combination of stunning coastal views, centuries of history and hugely enjoyable golf is what makes Balcomie Links one of Scotland's most finely polished, golfing gems. This traditional, classic links course was laid out by the old master himself, Tom Morris, and opened in 1895. The society itself was founded in 1786 and is officially the 7th oldest Golf Club in the world.

At first glance Dumbarnie Links may have the appearance of the style of the classic links courses where The Open Championship has been played since 1860. However, the extensive 345-acre site at Dumbarnie is particularly special.

Opened in June 2020, it's the newest and most exciting golf course project in Scotland for the past 10 years.

Full Practice facilities

A client’s favourite, Kingsbarns Golf Links is situated 7 miles from St Andrews along 1.8 miles of picturesque North Sea coastline, where each hole embraces the sea. In addition to enjoying a worldwide Top 100 ranked course, friendly and attentive service complete your “Kingsbarns Experience”.

Practice range ½ mile from course

The oldest and most iconic golf course in the world. The Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognised across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status it remains a public golf course, open to all.

I fell in love with it the first day I played it. There's just no other golf course that is even remotely close

- Jack Nicklaus, Open Champion 1970, 1978
