Golf Asia - - GOLFING BUZZ -

Em­brac­ing the nat­u­ral bal­ance and flow of the coastal land­scape over­look­ing Scot­land’s eastern shore and sculpted by 1973 Open Cham­pion and in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed golf course de­signer Tom Weiskopf, the course at The Feddinch Club is the first to be built in St. An­drews since 2008. To en­hance en­joy­ment and re­duce the time taken per round, dis­tances be­tween greens and suc­ceed­ing tees are gen­er­ally short, the fair­ways are wide and fast run­ning, and each ex­pan­sive green will present in­ter­est­ing chal­lenges that will re­quire a fair test of skill. The Feddinch Club is the only pri­vate, mem­ber-owned, fam­ily-ori­ented club at St. An­drews with its own course. It lies just out­side the town bound­ary to the south, en­joy­ing an en­vi­able lo­ca­tion with views ex­tend­ing over the town of St. An­drews and across the sea to Carnoustie. At par 72, the course will play to a full length of 7,373 yards from the back tees, 6,600 yards from the mid­dle dis­tance, and 5,484 yards from the for­ward mark­ers. The lux­u­ri­ous club­house will com­bine pri­vate club and re­sort el­e­ments, re­sult­ing in the per­fect life­style op­tion for those who want to ex­pe­ri­ence and en­joy all that St. An­drews of­fers, with­out the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties or ex­pense of main­tain­ing a sec­ond res­i­dence. www.fed­dinch­stan­
