As all golfers will ultimately want to play the old course, but not necessarily have the budget to pay for a high $$$ travel experience, or be successful in the lottery, the New Course is a great alternative. It runs next to the old course...More

Not much of a golf course. Very flat without a lot of character. Not bad for the price and to have a St Andrews experience.

Played the New Course after playing the Old in the morning. Obviously holes 1,17 and 18 are signatures holes on the Old but the New Course is much more scenic and fun.

Not so great as we wanted it to be - nice to play and the restaurant and golf shop were great. If you play, keep the shot to the right at almost every hole. We will be back at St Andrews Link Courses.
