  • Golfers unwind with a trip across scenic Kingsbarns, Scotland

    2010-02-03

    For golf enthusiasts across the world, Scotland has been the destination of choice for links-men and women with a flair for history. When researching a golfing tour of the Scottish mainland, no trip would be complete without a round played on the historic grounds of Kingsbarns.

    Located on the eastern coast of Fife, the town's history is deeply entwined with the game of golf. In 1793, a group of local men formed the Kingsbarns Golfing Society after leasing a large tract of land from the local nobles to indulge in their favorite past time. The modern course was incorporated in 2000 by designers Mark Parsinnen and Kyle Philips.

    The course itself features a sweeping sea-side backdrop and a gently rolling landscape that provides a challenge to even the most experienced golfer. Its lengthy expanses stretch along 1.5 miles of coastline, and its 18 holes rests at a daunting par 72.

    Kingsbarns' signature 12th hole is a 606 yard, par 5 with a narrow fairway flanked by the sea and more than 70 yards of green.

    Over the years the course has hosted innumerable tournaments including the European Tour's Dunhill Links Championship.
