KINGSBARNS LINKS SCHEME

 

Kingsbarns, the finest links course to be built in Scotland since Turnberry re-opened after the war, will be made available at greatly reduced prices to most local golfers who hold season tickets for St. Andrews Links.

It is planned to open the course on Monday 17th July and to run the "scheme" for eight years with the first fully operational year starting in April 2001. Prior to then, during an introductory period, times will be offered to R&A Members in September and to other local members in October of this year. Individual golfers willalso be able to reserve times for November and March from 1st July.

When the "scheme" is fully operational next year, 4000 rounds will be available at a discounted rate of less than half the cost of a normal round.

Sir Michael Bonallack, The Captain of the R&A and one of those involved in setting up the "scheme" said: "Kingsbarns has been constructed on a spectacular and unspoiled tract of land on the East Coast of Fife. I have no doubt that its development will not only add to the reputation of Fife as a golfing mecca but will also be of untold benefit to the courses in and around St. Andrews.

The development was undertaken by Granite Bay Scotland Inc with financial assistance from the R&A.
