Course Design and alterations: Kyle Phillips
The most recent addition to Fife’s golf coast has quickly developed a reputation as one of the finest links courses in Scotland and was chosen as a venue for the Dunhill Links Championship along with its more established neighbours Carnoustie and the Old Course. The designer Kyle Philips has used the spectacular coastal landscape along with traditional links design to produce a must-play course that sweeps around bays and meanders through dunes. Although only opened for play in 2000, golf was played on the links here as long ago as 1793 when Kingsbarns Golf Club was first formed making it the world’s 11th oldest club. Kingsbarns is without doubt one of the best golf courses in the world and a must play on your visit to Scotland.
