First time playing Kittocks course and loved it

Even though it was at the start of December that I played Kittocks course for the first time it was still full greens and full tee boxes plus no fairway shots played off mats which was fantastic. Course was muddy in areas and did have some standing water but it was still very playable and enjoyable. I definitely will try and get to play this course again.
Pro shop staff were attentive and very helpful plus knowledgeable which made the whole experience very enjoyable.
Only down side was that after coming off such a wet and muddy course I could not locate an area with an airline or brushes to try and clean up my golf buggy or shoes etc which I felt that a course of this standard should have - especially as they had 2 Tesla electric car charging points which were not being used

Disgraceful pace of play and over grown rough

Beautiful setting for a course and fairways and greens in good condition. The rough was ridiculous though, almost impossible to find a ball only 1 or 2 feet in and even if tou foind it the grass was so thick and long you couldnt backswing through it to try hit your ball.
Not the courses fault but two fourballs of rhe same group were 3-4 teetimes ahead of us and queued the ebtire course back, nearly 5 hours for us to complete a two ball, the twoball infromt left after 14 holes they were so fed up. Disappointed in the poor rough condition and no marshall to check pace of play as i was really looking forward to playing the course and had driven 2 hours each way to play there.

Amazing Course

Awesome seaside views including the cathedral in St Andrews in the distance.

Course is in immaculate shape and the greens were true & decent speed - any faster would not be enjoyable if the wind blows.

Staff was very helpful & friendly. The clubhouse restaurant/ bar was open but restricted due to COVID. Still managed a nice coffee and enjoyed the panoramic views.

The layout is very challenging, but never unfair. Greens always have an opening to run up a shot! If you are off course, the native grasses are extremely tough - provided you are lucky enough to find the ball.
