What makes Kingarrock truly special is the unique environment we've created, using a combination of historically-inspired groundsmanship with a few modern touches, with sheep grazing among the rough.
Greens and collars are hand-cut, while fairways and tees are carefully mowed using authentic 1920s-style trailed gangs. No fertilisers or artificial irrigation are used anywhere on the course, which provides a more natural, less manicured feel than most other courses.
Kingarrock offers an impressive level of biodiversity, with wildflowers including Marsh Orchid, Lady's Bedstraw, Cuckooflower and Ox-eye Daisy spreading across the course and attracting high numbers of bumblebees.
The tussocky grasses draw field voles and tawny owls, while the gorse on the course attracts yellowhammers sheltering from swooping Sparrowhawks and Tree Sparrows, who nest in the 15 tree boxes provided.
We've also started planting trees, such as Sessile Oak, Pedunculate Oak, European Beech, Horse Chestnut, Copper Beech and Sweet Chestnut, some of which have not been seen here for a century.
The course was always designed with views of the surrounding Fife countryside in mind, and today you can play while looking out onto nearby Craigrothie and distant Drumcarrow, while also taking in the Mansion House, Doocot and Forrester's Cottage.
