Scotland's Kingsbarns Golf Links extends season by two weeks

Great to see that Kingsbarns have decided to open their course for an additional two weeks at the end of the year. It's quite unbelievably celebrating its tenth anniversary and was recently ranked 15th in the Golf World Top 100, 
The course will now stay open until November 14 to accommodate increased demand from visiting golfers.

Stuart McEwen, the General Manager, said: "After a very busy season and another successful Alfred Dunhill Links Championship the course is still in fantastic condition and we want to give visiting golfers as much chance to enjoy it as possible. 2010 has been a tremendous year for Kingsbarns. We have celebrated the 10th anniversary of the course opening, hosted the Open Championship Local Final Qualifying and attracted greater numbers of visiting golfers. We want to keep the momentum going before the regular winter break."

Kingsbarns attracted widespread praise from both the professionals and the amateurs at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

British actor Hugh Grant said: ""For the middle-aged golf addict like myself, this is like dying and going to golfing heaven. It's impossible to say which of the three courses is the best but Kingsbarns is probably the prettiest."

The Hollywood film star Andy Garcia said: "The Kingsbarns Course reminds me a lot of some of the golf courses on the California coastline. There's one on the Monterrey Peninsula, and Pebble Beach too. I love playing links courses and Kingsbarns is a beautiful design. It looks much more than just 10 years old."
