That said I very much enjoyed my round on this 18-hole course built in 1993 by Donald Steel that rubs shoulders with the Eden on the Western side of all the courses.
In fact it’s a layout that I have a lot of time for. It’s generous off the tee and has plenty of interest around the greens with some lovely contouring. It’s not a course that will beat you up and at just 5,620 yards (par 69) it is more than scoreable.
The Strathtyrum would be a great introduction for somebody who hasn’t played any links golf before, or a good warm-up for a round on the New, Jubilee or Eden. It is also an easier walk and a round here will take up much less time than the above mentioned courses. Not just because it’s shorter but probably less crowded too.
It’s difficult to highly recommend a round here for the more accomplished golfer but it has a lot going for it and should not be a course to be totally dismissed when heading to St. Andrews.

The second course at Trevose very rarely crops in conversation but during a family holiday to the Cornish Resort I made sure to play it.
The third course at Trevose, aptly named the "Short Course" is just 1,360 yards.
