Golf Course/
St Andrews Eden

Mrs Herkless, the wife of the town provost, officially opened the Eden on Thursday, July 2, 1914 when she hit the ceremonial first drive.

It was the fourth course to be built at St Andrews Links, reflecting the growing demand for play on its sisters, the Old, the New and the Jubilee. Harry S Colt, whose other designs included Hoylake, Pine Valley, Sunningdale and Wentworth, was commissioned to design the course.

His layout challenged golfers with severe bunkering, undulating greens and many carries off the tee to reach the fairways.

By the year 1913 the pressure for play on the Old, New and Jubilee courses was such that a fourth course was required.

Although the Eden is not as long or demanding as the St. Andrews Old Course, it presents its own unique challenges and benefits with 6,200 yards of coastline play. The Eden Course is ideal if you are playing with someone who does not know the game very well, as the course is more forgiving than its sister greens.

The Eden Clubhouse is the perfect venue for a relaxing lunch with close family and friends. Enjoy the fresh home cooking and socialise in the Clubhouse's Young Golfers Room.
