Old post but to commentSt Andrew’s Castle course. Quite possibly the most fun I’ve had on a golf course in years.
Multiple choices on every tee. Most landing zones are out of sight behind very cleverly built mounds. Several “infinity” greens. And one of the best late par 3’s in the UK.
Probably not for the Links purist, but if you’re after a gorgeous course, not overly long, fantastic views and incredibly contoured greens then I haven’t played that many better.
I would say the Castle course does not really fit my idea of a fun course, which to me is a course you can enjoy when playing badly. I liked the Castle course but would have found it a real grind if I had not been playing well.
