    The Castle Course is the seventh course at the Home of Golf. Set on a rugged cliffline overlooking the ancient town of St Andrews, the course combines breathtaking views with a memorable golfing challenge.

    Designed by David Kidd, creator of Bandon Dunes on the West Coast of America, The Castle Course won several international awards in its first year of opening and was included within the prestigious Golf Digest Top 100 rankings almost immediately.

    The course was officially opened for play on July 2, 2008 by HRH The Duke of York and has proved popular with golfers looking for a new and exciting test of golf in St Andrews.

    The par 71 course has five tees on every hole and the length ranges from 5300 yards to 6789 yards from the boxes.

    The award-winning Castle Course Clubhouse nestles into the landscape on Kinkell Ness and offers spectacular views over St Andrews Bay and the town itself. The clubhouse has a restaurant, shop and changing and shower facilities.
