Owned by The Old Course Hotel, The Dukes Course is only about 7 minutes from the Ardgowan Hotel which was our base for our society golf tour in St Andrews. When you enter the gates you’re properly wowed going up the drive to the course. The scenery is beautiful at the Dukes, with the gorse in full bloom and everything about the place being very grand. The course is a great tree lined layout, which can get pretty testing as it’s quite tight at times and there are some long holes with a lot of gorse. All of the guys in our group loved the course even though some found it tough.
Service in the super slick clubhouse is phenomenal too. Members of staff go above and beyond and the changing room is one of the coolest I’ve been in! Beers on the balcony overlooking the course after the round are a must!
