The Duke's

St. Andrews, Fife
The Duke's was carefully planned and designed to complement the five classic links courses along the coastline and to enhance St Andrew's standing as the world mecca for golfers. Originally designed as the first heathland golf course in St Andrews, The Duke's has matured to offer a magnificent 18 holes in the delightful surrounding of Craigtoun Park, a spectacular location overlooking the historic university town and Fife's beautiful coastline.

Designed by Peter Thomson, five-times Open Champion of the 1950s and 1960s, The Duke's was revised and renovated, with five completely new holes, by Tim Liddy in 2006. Tim's philosophy is one of allowing a golf course to 'grow out of the land' rather than be imposed upon it. The course now displays all the hallmarks of the great heathland courses of the early 1920s.

The Duke's was opened in July 1995 by HRH The Duke of York, Prince Andrew, who played an inaugural round with British Lions and Scottish Rugby Captain Gavin Hastings OBE.
