One of the most breathtaking courses in the British Isles. The real genius is that even high handicappers can score well if they are prepared to play sensibly. An unforgettable experience.

There is no doubt that this is a lovely course with a lot of very challenging holes. You might actually have to think your way round the course if you dont want a bucket full of doubles and your ball pouch empty after 16 holes! If you enjoy golf you will enjoy this course, a bit pricey although I received the Scottish residents concession. However, without wishing to be unkind the criticism I would have is that it lacked the 'soul and quirkiness' of a traditional club links (not surprising). There was very lttle in the way of facilities for those who wanted to 'loiter' and take in the views in and around the clubhose area. It is what it is: a pay and play for Americans wanting the links experience, but well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Kingsbarns is a very good golf course, don't get me wrong, but it is not quite as great as everyone makes out. The stretch of the back nine along the sea front is fantastic and individual holes like the 7th are very good too, but for me there are too many weak holes to say that it is a classic. It also looks much more artificial than St Andrews Bay along the coast, which has also seen loads of earth moved and the views are good but not great. Great little clubhouse and the changing room has to be experienced. Kingsbarns is definitely worth a play but go with an open mind and you won't be disappointed.
I have played Muirfield, Sawgrass, The Old Course, Wentworth... but Kingsbarns is the best. Just an unbelievable golf course. Worth every penny it cost to play. Every hole at Kingsbarns is so well constructed and so visually attractive. Nothing bad I can say about it. Greens are first glass, fairways are as good as anywhere. Magnificent views from all over the course from the ideal golfing location. A must play golf course, I feel sorry for any keen golfer that doesnt get the chance to play Kingsbarns golf course. If heaven isn't like Kingsbarns, I don't want to go there!
Kingsbarns Golf Links is just a different class! For a new course it has the looks and feel like it has been around for 100's of years. Well worth the money and the trip to play. Should soon be on the Open rota in my books. Kingsbarns Golf Links is one of the best courses you will find anywhere in the world.
