Got the opportunity to play one of these at the end of the month. What would be the better course for mid-high handicapper? Is there much difference?

Both are fantastic courses (And fairly similar), but I think the Jubilee is the better of the two, especially the closing 6 holes. I wouldn't think it is too difficult for a mid/high handicapper as long as you keep the ball on the short stuff. A lot of the gorse has been cut back over the winter so it should be good.
Buy a strokesaver as it tells you what line your tee shot and approach shots should be, something the Skycaddie doesn't! (Also nice to keep)

I can only repeat and emphasize the opinion of the former posters. Both me and my golfing pal prefered the Jubilee Course although I scored better on the New but maybe because the wind was calmer that day !

Turns out, we can also play at Kingsbarns... sooooooooo...

Jubilee or Kingsbarns? My boss has just told me that Kingsbarns is his favourite track in the UK. Do people here echo his sentiments?
