Par 71, yardage 6,310. Situated just 15 minutes' drive from the town of St. Andrews, Scotscraig is a pleasant but testing course that's a mix of heathland and links. It is used as a final qualifying venue when the Open Championship returns to The Old Course. Its inviting blend of heathland and links stems from the fact that there are more trees than would normally be found on a links, although its relatively close proximity to the sea and rolling fairways ensures an enjoyable links experience. Scotscraig is known for its perfectly kept greens and all-round good condition thanks to an agreable local climate.
