Kings­barns is a trib­ute to clas­sic Scot­tish links and has come on in leaps and bounds since open­ing in 2000. De­signed by lead­ing golf ar­chi­tect Kyle Phillips, the lay­out me­an­ders along one- and- a- half miles of rugged seashore, of­fer­ing ocean views from ev­ery hole. With spa­cious fair­ways rolling and twist­ing through dune ridges and hol­lows, true links turf and large greens, the course is chal­leng­ing yet playable. Kings­barns is all about risk and re­ward. You can play to a safe area but it’s likely to be a tough an­gle to the green. If you take a gam­ble and go the Tiger line, you will have the choice of play­ing a run­ning shot or one through the air. www. kings­barns. com ( Nearby courses: St An­drews Old Course, Cas­tle Course, Duke’s Course, Bal­comie Links ( Crail).)
