Kingsbarns Golf Links – Scotland

Kingsbarns is a must for any Scotland Golf Trip.  The course is fabulous and the service even better. 

We played on a beautiful July day.  Our caddies were four students from The University of St Andrews

Harry was my caddie, all fine gentlemen.

When our group made the turn we were delighted to be introduced to the owner of Kingsbarns, Mr. Art Dunkley, who was on site to greet guests and make sure our needs were being met.  Wow.  I’m sure he was in town for The Open.  Art is an American from California who had a vision for a quality course people who came to visit St. Andrews could play……learn more

Art asked us if we were aware that Fred Ridley, Chairman of Augusta National was two groups ahead of us?  He too, was in town for The Open.

At the end of our round I headed into the clubhouse to find a table for lunch.  And there was Mr. Ridley walking right towards me.  On impulse I asked if he would mind a quick photo.  He couldn’t have been more gracious to me.  A great ambassador for the game and a class act.

What a great day.
