Following the coastline east of St Andrews, The Castle Course is two miles from the town centre. Work on the ground began early in 2005.
The designer, David McLay Kidd, creator of Bandon Dunes on the West Coast of America, has created a typical Scottish golf experience. Each hole has a choice of five tees and the course will be playable between about 5300-7200 yards.
