Kingsbarns Golf Links #15


Located just seven miles east on the A917 road from the heart of St. Andrews, Kingsbarns Golf Links delivers an entirely new world of links golf. Designed by Kyle Phillips, the golf course opened in 2000 and is set on a leveled amphitheater-like slope down towards the coastline, so nearly every hole has views of the sea. Other holes, such as the par-5 12th and par-3 15th, require a tee shot over the sea. At more than 7,100 yards from the championship tees, Kingsbarns is a formidable enough test to be included in the Dunhill Links Championship rotation each fall that includes the Old Course at St. Andrews and Carnoustie Golf Links.
