Summer 2000 Grand Opening for Kingsbarns Golf Links

Travel & Leisure Golf

Golf course architect Kyle Phillips has successfully completed work on Kingsbarns Golf Links near St. Andrews, Scotland. The course design is a tribute to its Scottish links heritage. It is based on the site of the nine-hole course, home of the Kingsbarns Golfing Society, established in 1793. The original course was used for military purposes during World War II. The land was taken over by farmers after that.

Seven holes play directly down on the shoreline of the rugged Scottish coast. The remaining holes all have splendid ocean views. It will measure 5,610 to 7,175 yards.

The course’s grand opening is planned July 2000 to coincide with the British Open, which is being played at St. Andrews.

Also, Kyle Phillips Golf Design has recently completed the remodeling work for the 2000 President’s Cup on behalf of the prestigious Robert Trent Jones Golf Club near Washington, D.C.

Current work under construction includes Golfsocieteit De Lage Vuursche, near Amsterdam, as well as Golf Eichenheim, a magnificent new mountain course in the Austrian Alps.
