The links at Kingsbarns was created in the late 1990s, when Kyle Philips worked his magic on this little corner of heaven. It is fluid, it is velvet and it is unforgettable. The course embraces the subtlety of links golf while lavishing it with charm and elegance. Set on Kingsbarns Bay, golfers will play over wide and rhythmic fairways to sweetly undulating greens. It is as hypnotic as it sounds and the course stretches for almost two miles along the coast, embracing three separate coves. The views of the sea are only a turn of a head away and such beauty is reflected on the course with the wispy rough adding a golden hue, the low cliffs presenting holes on different levels and the variety of greens promising huge amounts of fun. The par three15th requires you to play over the sea. Expect immaculate conditioning throughout (including the service).
