Golf Course Says
Opened in 1993 - at the time St Andrews's first new 18 holes in 80 years - St Andrews Strathtyrum Course is named after the estate which the land once formed part of. Donald Steel designed the course to enhance the other courses not to compete with them and Strathtyrum is shorter and much freer of sand traps than any of its neighbours. Accuracy and concentration on the putting surfaces are crucial if you are to thrive round here. St Andrews Strathtyrum Course becomes more popular every year and is fully deserving of its place in the Home of Golf.

Golfalot Review of St Andrews Strathtyrum Course
The St Andrews Strathtyrum golf course occupuies a flat piece of land between the Eden and the main road into St Andrews so it is a very easy walking course. Not overly long, it makes up for this with several raised greens with steep slopes all around them, so if you miss them you are going to find life difficult. Really this is a course for mid to high handicappers as there are very few bunkers and at just over 5600 yards it is playable by most levels of golfer and it is prices accordingly. Better players will also enjoy it as it will test your short game and we liked this as a fun course for that morning after round or light hearted game full of side bets.
The Strathtyrum Course in St Andrews is not as easy as it looks on the card. Yes it is short, but the well kept greens are usually raised, so if you miss them on the wrong side you can have an impossible up and down. It is fun for all levels and for the lower handicappers it is a great course for practising accurate long shots and your short game.
