Play Kittocks

Course and greens in fabulous condition. A real challenge, especially when wind blowing which it was. Had the course to ourselves it appeared. Well with the drive up from Glasgow.

Wonderful course

Always a pleasure to play here but the weather was horrendous with fog and heavy rain. The staff did offer us a voucher to come back another time which was really kind but we had looked forward to playing here again and after a drive of 90 minutes we just wanted to play. The course itself was very wet but the greens were still really quick. It is a really good challenge of golf for all levels. Will look forward to come back and play again it is a stunning venue, hopefully in dry weather next time so we can take in the brilliant scenery.

Superb course

The Kittocks is a stunning golf course. A real test for any golfer with rapid greens, penile rough and the best views in golf you will ever see. We played in a sunny October morning with hardly a breath of wind, this was challenging enough for 3 mid-low handicappers.This is a must play!!

Stunning

What a course!!
The best course I've played since gleneagles , even this late in the season the course is in tremendous condition fairways are pristine a wee bit of maintenance on the tees and greens but they were still cracking, really fast but still receptive with the rain the day before . The views are spectacular too ,out to sea ,over the rocks and back down to the town its picture perfect all the way round .
