The unfinished Golf course.
The unfinished Golf course is a short blog post which tells the story of The Feddinch Club in St Andrews.
Not many people know that there is an unfinished Golf course in St Andrews.
It actually sits close to the Duke’s Course just off the A915.
Planning permission was granted in 2004.
The project paused for a while and was then boosted again in 2018.
Since 2019, the project has come to another halt. It now sits dormant, half finished.
The development is up for sale with Galbraith Group for a small fee of £25 million.
The Golf course at The Feddinch Club
The designer of this unfinished course is non-other than the 1973 Open Champion, Tom Weiskopf.
Tom Weiskopf has designed 65 courses, 7 of which are ranked in the world’s Top 100.
When finished “The Feddinch Club” will be the first course to be built in St Andrews since 2008.
The course, when finished, will be a PAR 72 7373 yards from the back tees, 6600 from the middle and 5484 from the forward tees.
The 9th hole & 18th hole will share a huge green right outside the clubhouse.
A further feature will be a short 19th playoff hole in case of any matches that are even after 18 holes.
The facilities will also include a 400-yard driving range, a dedicated short game area with bunkers and a putting green that will reflect the greens on the course.

The membership will be split into 3 classes.

The Clubhouse Facilities
The Clubhouse, at 60,000 sq feet, will serve as a private club and also as a resort but with a certain ‘home from home’ feeling about it.
It will have 45 luxurious, spacious, guest rooms. Each en-suite guest room will be exclusive to members and their guests only.
There will be a beautiful restaurant and also Private dining facilities all overlooking the 9th & 18th holes.
Other facilities include an exclusive bar with a fantastic wine cellar and cigar room. There will also be a library and a trophy room too.
The Spa & Wellness facilities promise to be spectacular with a pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and it also includes treatment rooms.
Private meeting rooms and even a Concierge are some of the other facilities that you may not associate with a Golf club.
There will be an entrance gate with security to help make it safer and more private for its members.
The architects of the new building also designed the clubhouses at Kingsbarns and Castle Stuart.
