Perched atop the cliffs that are situated above St. Andrews Bay, Fairmont St. Andrews offers two stunning traditional links golf courses, the Torrance and the Kittocks. In a region famous for being the home of golf, both courses manage to hold their own against the area's other links courses. Playing the Torrance Course, you would never believe that it was once flat farmland. The designer, Sam Torrance, transformed the course into a challenging links layout that looks as though it has been there forever. The classic Scottish bunkers that are strategically placed throughout provide a formidable test. Be careful from the 14th green to the final hole or you might find yourself tumbling down the rocky cliffs. This dramatic final stretch of holes is especially scenic and challenging with greens that play right along the edge of the water.

Great course on a quiet autumns day

Felt like we were the only ones in the course! Well maintained with no wet patched after lots of rain days before. Greens we’re difficult and the wind plays a big factor

Fairmont torrance course

Played the torrance course. It was like millionaires golf no one in front of me. The course was a little wet but did not affect the game. Challenging course especially when the wind gets up. Would recommend it was one of the cheaper courses in the area.

What a beauty in the area golf first began

Blimey what a course...the views are stunning. The greens and fairways were impeccable....I couldn't believe it wag end of October as the course played like it was middle of the summer....make sure you stay on the fairway as you won't find your own ball in the rough, but you may find other people's....top day out total gem, I'll be back again definitely

Great golf

Really enjoyable experience. Course was in first class condition with an interesting lay out with a wide variety of holes. Views across the bay were magnificent.
Greens had a lovely smooth surface even in late October.
Well worth a visit, I’ll certainly be back.

Great Course, Perfect greens, good T Boxes

This is a great Course. The front 9 is ok but nothing to write home about, there are a few nice holes. However from the 9th T onwards the fees comes into view, and there are some lovely scenic holes.

Technically this is a tough course, especially with the wind. It was blowing 25-30mph when I played. The fairways are lovely, and the 1st cut of rough is fair. If you go beyond the first cut of rough your ball is gone.

Definitely worth playing if your in the area, and I’m sure it will bring a smile to your face, especially the back 9. There are two courses on this resort and of the two, I think I prefer the Kittocks for the views.
