Excellent staff. A very rare thing that all the staff were friendly, not crawling, but genuinely engaging. The course was great. My joint favourite course with Dornoch. Dornoch for location, Kingsbarns for the actual course.

Kingsbarns is a beautiful golf course with stunning views of the North Sea. The condition of the course was impeccable. It is perhaps more of an American style resort course than the other courses we played but the fairways, greens etc are exceptional. The staff was great. The caddies were outstanding and the food in the clubhouse was great. It is worth the cost to play this course. If you are a woman, this is one of the few courses that plays under 5400 yards from the forward tees - very playable. Worth a second visit.

If you love your golf, you have to come and play this course. The 12th and 15th are simply two of the best holes you will ever play. It's a must-do on the St Andrews circuit.

The high-sitting clubhouse is beautiful, not too big, just right, with great food and drink at reasonable prices.

The staff are pleasant, courteous and very helpful.

If you golf and are in Scotland, you have to play Kingsbarns! It is the most beautiful course I have ever played! It is very challenging, but very fair. It has breathtaking views on almost every hole. The staff are all very friendly and make you feel like a member (which it doesn't have any). Best course in St. Andrews!

This is a fair course that you could play every day. It tests you but doesn't beat you up. The Old Course is special because of its history. Kings barns is special because it is a great track!
