Those who play Kingsbarns will be surprised to find out it is built within the last 100 years, let alone in 1999, given how magnificent the layout blends into the surrounding holes. Even more surprising, is the majority of the layout is man-made, a testament to Kyle Phillips vision to tie into the surrounding landscapes, including 2 kilometres of oceanfront real estate. It can be difficult to live up to the reputation of golf’s founding golf courses, but Kingsbarns perhaps puts up the best fight of any modern course in the British Isles.
