It's not just a round of golf.
Oct 2021
Putting out on the 18th hole because I felt privileged that we had just walked and played one of the most beautiful golf courses on the planet. Few can compare. If you only had one choice to experience Scotland's beauty this could be it. Even after an event like the Dunhill Cup the course presented itself a 10 out of 10. Kudos to the greens and maintenance staff. On our arrival we were greeted by Golf Operations Manager Garry who put us at ease and accommodated us like we were full fledged members. Our names on our bag tags was a real nice touch. Starter Gordon started our round with a big smile and a joke and a great tip for the first hole. We were provided with a complimentary Kingsbarns tee bag and yardage book which was very special. On completion of our round Garry met us again and told us the story behind Kingsbarns. What an accomplishment by all those who were behind the creation and design of Kingsbarns. We will be back.

What a great golfing experience from start to finish
Sep 2021 • Friends
I first visited Kingsbarns in 2018 and thought it was special. Now back in 2021 I wondered would it have maintained its aura. Well it has. Once again from the time we entered the property nothing was too much trouble to the Kingsbarns team. From Gordon the starter to Emma in the clubhouse. A perfect combination of Scottish hospitality and excellent customer service. So many other golf’s courses and indeed other establishments could benefit from spending time learning how a five star product should be offered.
A special word to my caddie, Lyndsey, who expertly guided me around the course to my record stable Ford points score of the trip.
All in all a perfect way to spend a day playing golf.
Well done to you all

5* course - 1* hospitality
Aug 2021
Enjoyed a lovely round of golf on the magnificent Kingsbarn Links however less than impressed by the clubhouse rules. Whilst players are warmly welcomed it should be made clear that non playing partners are not. My wife and daughter were consigned to outside seating and were only reluctantly allowed access to the lounge when the wind became too strong . They were not allowed seating in the window areas of the lounge (even though the lounge was virtually empty) On the positive side the staff did their best to make a bad situation better.
Whilst appreciating that Kingsbarns discriminates against non players , I feel that it should be made very clear , at the time of booking ,that only golfers are welcomed.
A simple message - Non Players Not Welcome in the Clubhouse - would eliminate any expectation of traditional Scottish hospitality.

Birthday Treat to remember
Aug 2021
Best our group have played by far, From the moment we arrived "2 hours early" this was everything we had hoped for. Warm welcome from the Pro then into the clubhouse for breakfast which was lovely, Practice range and putting green were excellent, Very polite and helpful starter sent us on our way to a spectacular 18 holes.
We played of the Green tees which made the course playable for our standard 0,4,7,and 9 hcps..
No doubt playing on a beautiful calm day assisted ,however between us we have played all top courses in Scotland barring Trump's and all were in agreement that this was the best.
Would have liked a seat at a table at the Halfway house rather than having to purchase and eat/drink on the hoof
Highly recommended

Hard to compare Kingsbarns to anywhere else, as is it very special. From the moment you arrive, it is a first class experience and something that sets it apart from other local courses. Spectacular.

Wonderful golf course
Aug 2020 • Friends
2 things to say; firstly the course is magnificent one of the best courses I have played, the views are outstanding and the course layout is great. Secondly, the service from the staff is second to none. I had a slight issue when I last played it (long story!) and emailed Alan Hogg to provide some feedback. The manner in which Alan dealt with it was superb, first class customer service. I also dealt with Audrey in arranging a new tee time and some after sales, again the level of service was first class. Both Alan and Audrey are a credit to Kingsbarns.

Professionally Run Golf Course.
May 2019
From the moment you arrive you know that you're in for something special - the bag staff are friendly, the practice facilities terrific and a shop filled with collectables!

The course routing is ingenious, crescent-shaped along the Fife coast, with holes on 3 separate levels providing sea views from every fairway.

A definite MUST play while you're in St Andrews but it is expensive.

Great golf in such a lovely site...
Oct 2019 • Couples
Kingsbarns Course and the entire staff were superb. Lindsey was our caddie on day one and we kept him busy raking bunkers. He was very helpful with a great sense of humor. The course was very fair and only slightly intimidating.

The starter was awesome to get us going and the pace of play was excellent.

We played a second day, weather was cool and sunny, with good winds (20 mph). We did not use a caddie for day two (only because we played the previous day) and this probably added a few strokes.

Took lots of awesome pictures, what a great location.

Fantastically set up course with a lot of small details. Challenging but not so challenging that it’s impossible to play. Keep the ball low with all those sea breezes!
