New golf course at Kingsbarns   more

Review extracted from Golf Odyssey, 24 December 2000

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 couple of Californians named Kyle Phillips and Mark Parsinen, it is called Kingsbarns Golf Links, after the tiny Fife village where it is located. Already, Kingsbarns can fairly lay claim to greatness.
