The Feddinch Club was first mooted at the turn of the century when permission was granted for a golf course on the site to the south-east of St Andrews, off the A915 Largo Road.

It will be the first new course to open in St Andrews since the Castle Course – operated by St Andrews Links – was unveiled in 2008.
