St. Michael's Golf Club sits atop Gallow Hill, providing spectacular views past the River Eden to the historic buildings of St. Andrews. The course sprawls across a prehistoric settlement that is protected by Historic Scotland. The terrain is an interesting mix of wooded parkland and undulating heathland with a well-draining sandy base. The golf course features small greens and narrow fairways that place a premium on accuracy. While it may not have the prestige or the classic links layout of St. Andrews, St. Michael's Golf Club offers just as formidable a test. The challenges begin immediately on the first hole, an uphill par 4 with a fairway that slopes right to left. St. Michael's signature hole is the par-3 15th, which many consider to be the most demanding short hole in Fife. There is a large dip to the left and rear of the green, a bunker to the front right, and out-of-bounds to the left and on the railway line behind.

Course is well maintained

Good parking facilities, staff were friendly and course was in excellent condition.

The front 9 was good and the back 9 was fine up until 15 when it felt the course was crammed together due to lack of space. Some challenging holes .

Excellent back 9

Small provincial club with character. Lots of room but punishes the bad slice or hook. Fairways are a bit parched and dry due to a few years of dry summers and absence of fairway sprinklers but greens were good, if just a bit slow in comparison to other courses round St Andrews. Some quirky holes, but excellent par threes and a challenging and very interesting back 9. Some hills and valleys to negotiate on the back 9, noticed some elderly lady members playing behind sensibly opted for 9 holes.

Very Enjoyable

Greens were in excellent condition, nice mix of woodland style with a little links thrown in. Fairways were parched (sign of a good summer). Nice wide fairways and rough forgiving on most holes. Some interesting holes carved out of quarry on back none. Could benefit from more yardage markers to help the visitor as there is a few blind shots to greens.

A good course for all abilities

Fairways are a bit parched and you get some odd
bounces - a bit like links on parkland. Greens however were very good. Avoid the rough if you can - we lost a few balls!!!!
