Kingsbarns Golf Links
Saint Andrews, United Kingdom
Description :The 18 holes, par 72, 7200 yards golf course setting it in an Amphitheatre along the coast, nearly every hole boasts spectacular views of the North Sea. Each Autumn Kingsbarns joins the Old Course, St Andrews and Carnoustie Golf Links as a co-host of the European Tour’s prestigious Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
The Kyle Phillips designed gem of a course has many interesting holes with the signature hole being the 12th hole, which is a long half-moon shaped Par-5 that bends around the North Sea playing 606 yards from the championship tees. The layout of the hole entices players to look directly at the green which is visible across the water and rocks. The safe play is well right of the water to avoid the deep rough left and unplayable rocks further left.
