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 .

Very Enjoyable

The course was what you expect in St Andrew's. Beautifully kept links course and very challenging. Didn't give excellent for the course condition purely because the Tee's and Greens had been treated, although they still ran true.
We hired the Golf Boards to get around the course, what a fantastic new addition. Loved them and would use them again in the future.

Great views and interesting variety of holes

Greens are rolling really well right now, but the fairways could have done with a cut. Green fees seem to have gone up quite a bit in the last year. Still worth it, but not quite as easy to justify regular play.

great course

i have played many links courses in the past and this is up there with the best,not a bad hole on the course the fairways were slightly soft due to the amount of rain they had in the previous few days but the greens were true and fast and were a delight to putt on , the complimentary strokesaver was a lovely touch that i have not received at more expensive golf courses. i will definitely be back to play the torrance course in the future.l

Kittocks in the Sun

This is a great course, some wonderful hole design, views incredible and all in great condition. If being hyper critical the Par3s especially front 9 feel a bit weaker vs the others. True greens, plenty of warm up options, good food after, just what was looking for. Well worth the trip outside of StA. We paid £70 just £15 more then the Eden or less than New/Jubilee, must be close to best value/course in the area.
