Opened in 2000, and only six miles south-east from St Andrews, Kingsbarns Golf Links was developed by two Californians (Mark Parsinen and Art Dunkley), and designed by a third, Kyle Phillips, one of the top architects in the business. The course was carved from farmland that sweeps majestically along the sea, between the villages of Kingsbarns and Crail. The sea figures prominently on every hole at Kingsbarns and the course (four sets of tees range from 5142-7126 yards) looks like it has been there for 200 years, although it only opened in July 2000 (there was an older 9 hole course on the site from 1793-1939). On more than half the holes, the sea is directly in the golfer’s active frame of play, so bring a camera because this is one of the most scenic courses in the world. Sir Michael Bonallack, Captain of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club (the R&A bought part of the course!) says, “Mere words cannot convey just how extraordinary the place is … it must be seen to be believed … and once seen it will never be forgotten.” Many travelers remark that Kingsbarns is their favorite and most beautiful links course in Scotland. Come early, the complimentary practice range and putting green are among the best practice facilities in Scotland. Kingsbarns received the Scottish Golf Tourism Award in 2014, 2015 and 2016 for the No.1 ranked "Scotland's Best Golf Experience".
