New golf course at Kingsbarns more
Review extracted from Golf Odyssey, 24 December
A few weeks before this year's British Open, which saw
Tiger Woods treat the Old Course with impertinence, a new golf course opened
some fifteen minutes down the coast from St. Andrews. Designed and built by a

Kingsbarns Golf Links, after the tiny Fife village where it is located.
Already, Kingsbarns can fairly lay claim to greatness.

Mark Parsinen, teaming up with business partner Art Dunkley
and golf course architect Kyle Phillips on Kingsbarns, knew that if his new
course was going to garner respect it had to look old, even though it was new
and shaped by men and bulldozers instead of sheep and the wind.
