Introducing Scotland’s newest golf course, Dumbarnie Links

The town of St. Andrews in the Fife region of Scotland has many beautiful links courses. The hallowed Old Course at St. Andrews, the home of golf, will always be the star attraction, although Kingsbarns now ranks highly with clients, alongside nearby Carnoustie and Gleneagles PGA Centenary.

However, there’s a new kid on the block, and its only 9 miles outside of town.

Former Ryder Cup player-turned course designer Clive Clark partnered with American friends to build Dumbarnie LInks on 354 acres of land, on part of The Balcarres Estate owned by Lord Balniel.

Dumbarnie is a stunning property, offering panoramic views of the Firth of Forth, with spectacular elevated tees seamlessly connected to beautifully crafted fairways. A notable trademark of a Clark design, there are three drivable Par 4s – should the prevailing wind be in your tail. One of which, the 17th is considered the signature hole with unique bunkering protecting the green.

The risk and reward layout boasts great shapes to the holes, with unrivalled views from the tee complexes, everything out in front of you. The luxurious clubhouse offers the perfect ambience for post-round reflections over a pint or wee dram, overlooking the spectacular dunes and Firth of Forth.

We have no doubt Dumbarnie Links will establish itself as a must-play course in the area and a staple on Fife & St. Andrews itineraries long into the future.
