“Nice wood panelled dinning room, but...”

Attraction details
Owner description: The Duke's, owned and managed by the Old Course Hotel, is a lush, heathland golf course perched on the hillside just a few minutes from the hotel. Noted in Golf World's Top 100 Courses in the Scotland, this championship 18-hole course has magnificent greens, beautiful fairways, a fleet of electric golf buggies and five tees on every hole, making it most appealing to golfers of all abilities. Don't forget to visit The Duke's Clubhouse, a popular and relaxed dining venue with stunning views of St Andrews and beyond. The award-winning Duke’s Clubhouse offers a hearty selection of traditional food to warm the cockles of any weary golfer’s heart - tune in to the post-golfing analysis over a pint of beer or head on to the deck and catch a few rays of sun with a gin and tonic in hand.

“Nice wood panelled dinning room, but...”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

The food was average. Too many of the restaurants in St. Andrew's live off the location. Better presentation cost nothing more.

“Surprisingly good golf”
Reviewed 22 July 2010

I read in the Golf Nook website the Dukes golf course was recently renovated so I tried it out. It's fabulous and I feel it's a hidden gem. If it were anyplace else but St. Andrews it would be famous. If you're in the area try it out. It's not a links course but check out the review at www.golfnook.com I think you'll agree with me that's sit's a worthwhile play.

“A lovely course”
Reviewed 11 May 2010

The Duke's sit overlooking the town of St Andrews and winds through some beautiful hills snaking up and down. While the Links courses (the Old, New and Jubilee) are flat and very walkable, the use of a buggy adviseable on this up and down layout. In addition, the walk from green to next tee is a bit longer (quite a bit in some cases). Nevertheless, it is a glorious course with wild bunkers, fast greens and beautiful fairways. It is a fine test of golf and highly recommended
