The Torrance Course at the Fairmont St Andrews Resort lies a couple of miles south of St Andrews en route to Kingsbarns.
Set within a stunning 520-acre location, the Fairmont St Andrews Hotel offers 36 holes of spectacular championship golf on the Torrance and Kittocks Courses, designed by former Ryder Cup Captain Sam Torrance and Australian Bruce Devlin.
After recent extensions and renovations, the Torrance course was re-opened in July 2009 and offers a great test of golf to golfers of all handicaps with several tee boxes to choose from. A number of the holes offer a risk or reward option.
The Torrance Course hosted the Scottish Open on the European Seniors Tour for several years and is one of the longer golf courses in Scotland when played off of the Blue back tees.
The Torrance is the flatter of the two courses and a relatively easy walk.
Caddies are available but carts are only allowed for golfers producing a medical certificate. The cart is provided free of charge but a caddy must drive the cart and the appropriate fee paid to the caddy.
You will also find a well-stocked shop overseen by the long standing Professional John Kerr.
John and his staff will take very good care of you on your visit to the Fairmont St Andrews.
After your round you can enjoy majestic panoramic views in the superb Clubhouse which looks out over St Andrews Bay.
Fairmont St Andrews is a fine choice for inclusion in golf trip to Scotland.
Your trip would be further enhanced by including both the Torrance and Kittocks courses in your itinerary.
