Coastal views of the North Sea and historic St Andrews greet you at the Fairmont St Andrews Golf Resort, and these can be admired from the greens of either of its two fine golf courses as well as from the clifftop setting of the clubhouse. The facilities here are second to none and include a large putting green and expansive short-game area.
Opened in August 2001 and named after one of its three designers, Sam Torrance, this Open-qualifier course offers some fantastic links golf. The greens may take a while to get used to purely due to the fact that they are so fast, an extra challenge to contend with after you have successfully navigated the perfectly-positioned bunkers that protect the approach. Views around the course are spectacular especially from the 8th green which looks down over the remaining holes.
