Golf Course/
St Andrews Strathyrum

In July 1993, the Strathtyrum Course became the first new 18-hole layout to come into play at St Andrews for almost 80 years. The course was opened simultaneously with the Golf Practice Centre. Tornado jet fighters flew over the first tee as local farmer, John Steven, who had won a competition in a local newspaper, struck the first drive.

The course takes its name from the adjacent Strathtyrum Estate, from which the land was purchased. Designed by Donald Steel to offer enjoyable golf, the course complements the tougher, championship layouts at the “home of golf”. It is shorter and, with only 15 bunkers, has fewer hazards facing the golfer.

The Strathtyrum Course, under the ownership and guidance of the St Andrews Links Trust, opened for play in 1993 along with the newly developed and smaller Balgove Course.

At the time it became the first new 18 layout to come into play at St Andrews for 80 years and took its name from the adjacent Strathtyrum Estate form which the land was purchased. A Donald Steel design, it requires skill and patience, just like any other good links golf course. It lies primarily on an east to west axis with the result that the prevailing westerly winds can play havoc when judging distance.
