Apart from the obvious wonderful setting this course is a really good challenge to all players of different standards. Good condition, wide fairways, tough bunkers and helpful staff on hand. Easy to get round with toilets mid way round.

As all golfers will ultimately want to play the old course, but not necessarily have the budget to pay for a high $$$ travel experience, or be successful in the lottery, the New Course is a great alternative. It runs next to the old course...More

Not much of a golf course. Very flat without a lot of character. Not bad for the price and to have a St Andrews experience.
