Torrance Course revamped at St. Andrews

Torrance New 18
18th at Torrance Course, Fairmont St. Andrews

The Torrance Course at the Fairmont St.Andrews re-opened mid summer after being closed for extensive refurbishment. Improvements were made to all tees, fairways and all 63 bunkers were completely rebuilt in a revetted style. Now the bunkers are a real hazard to be avoided. The European Seniors Tour visited in August for the Scottish Seniors Open and in 2010 it is one of the venues for Local Final Qualifying for the Open Championship.

What was a pleasant course is now a really good one, the greens were always in great shape and that has not changed, it also has great views down towards the town of St.Andrews and over the Estuary towards Carnoustie. We highly recommend adding to your schedule, especially if staying in the resort it can easily be added on our arrival day or as an additional round during your stay.
