Scotscraig Golf Course

Last Updated:

What we say

Just 15 minutes from St Andrews, you’ll discover the world’s 13th oldest course and the combination of trees, heather and gorse bushes make this fast-running heathland one of the sneakily-toughest courses around. Scotscraig is a Final Open Qualifying venue when the Open is played at the Home of Golf and always gives the top players plenty to think about. The course is close to the coast so there are a few sea breezes to consider when playing this linksy/heathland combo.

A final qualifying venue for St Andrews Opens, Scotscraig is a heathland/links mix that dates back to 1817.

The 13th oldest golf club in the world is only 15 minutes from St Andrews and although this course doesn't sit on the coastline it certainly receives the wind a coastal course is famous for.

  • 4 out of 5 A good test of golf

    A nice course used as an Open qualifier I think. Good condition but that's true of most Fife courses.

    Arriving late in the afternoon, we were greeted by the Pro, who had taken our booking earlier in the month. He gave us some playing tips for the course, and a "spare" Open Final Qualifying Strokesaver. After only two holes it was clear that this is an excellent test of golf, and as the round progressed it became even more clear that the guys who qualify for Opens at St Andrews from here have played some golf to do so. Strongly recommended if you are in the St Andrews area, and even if you are not, Scotscraig might just be good enough to make a special trip worthwhile.
