COURSE 
Opened - Original course 2001, existing layout 2009
Course designer - Original designers Sam Torrance, Denis Griffiths and the late Gene Sarazen. Re-design by Gary Stephenson.
Special features - Course sits on the cliffs overlooking St Andrews Bay and the historic town of St Andrews as well as spectacular sea views across to the Angus coast and Carnoustie.
General Play-ability - Although carved from agricultural land the Torrance has a very ‘links’ feel to it with subtle undulations, fierce rough and deep, revetted bunkers. The greens play well all year round and are well known for their fast and true surfaces, however, the speed is monitored according to the strength of the wind and its direction.
- Cleverly designed to incorporate the four points of the compass within the opening 5 holes, all manner of shots are required to navigate these safely.
-There are a number of tees available on each hole to suit all abilities.
-The course was selected to host Local Final Qualifying for the 2010 Open Championship.
Tree lined / exposed - Exposed with occasional gorse.
Undulating / flat -  Subtle links style undulations.
Many / few water hazards - Numerous burns/streams protecting the approach to the green.

OTHER FEATURES
- The course sits upon an area of Special Scientific Interest and has to be managed accordingly. There are restrictions to the amount of water that can be expelled from the site so this must be stored in catchment areas away from the general playing surfaces. These areas have become significant environmental areas producing habitats for countless birds, insects, flora and fauna.
