The Torrance Course, St Andrews

Perched atop the cliffs that are situated above St Andrews Bay, Fairmont St Andrews offers two stunning traditional links golf courses, the Torrance and the Kit tocks. In a region famous for being the home of golf, both courses manage to hold their own against the area’s other links courses.  Playing the Torrance Course, you would never believe that it was once flat farmland. The designer, Sam Torrance, transformed the course into a challenging links layout that looks as though it has been there forever. The classic Scottish bunkers that are strategically placed throughout provide a formidable test. Be careful from the 16th green to the final hole or you might find yourself tumbling down the rocky cliffs. This dramatic final stretch of holes is especially scenic and challenging with greens that play right along the edge of the water

Host to The Final Open Qualifying in 2010 and home to The Scottish Senior Open between 2009 and 2014, The Torrance Course is also the chosen venue for the European Tour Scottish Championships, October 2020
