Scotscraig Course is just a 15-minute drive from the Old Course in St Andrews. Although it’s hasn’t got the sea views like the other links courses, there is still sea breezes and a heathland mixture to contend with. The course boasts being the 13th oldest course in the world and is host to many championships.
It’s a 6550 yard, par 71 with 18 holes and, therefore, a test of accuracy. And, like the Jubilee Course, it’s less about hitting the distance and more about precision. In addition, there are plenty of bunkers and fairways that have been rebuilt to challenge the players on the green.
The Scotscraig Course has a Club & Bar affectionately called the 19th Hole. It’s worth checking the opening times as they are subject to change. For breakfast, they have hot rolls, sandwiches, baguettes, baked potatoes and chips.
Their main menu has a range of items to choose from and includes high tea, homemade pie and curry of the day. In addition to this, there are also vegetarian and gluten-free options. Notably, it recommends that you pre-order food prior to playing.
