Perfect for Practising

Around 80% of golf is played within 100yds of the pin. Have you ever hit two great shots to get within 100yds of the pin and then taken 5 to get down?

At Hawkswood House and The Roundel we cater for the golfer. So, in order to improve your short game skills, before visiting one of the great golf courses in nearby St Andrews, we have built your very own Short Game Area in the grounds of each property.

The Short Game Area at Hawkswood House was designed and built by a golf professional, to provide the perfect practice area for honing your short game. The course has 5 pitching mats, 6 holes and two bunkers, providing a wide range of lies and distances. This offers the opportunity to practice a variety of shots.

The Roundel Short Game Area which opened in May 2017 has 3 pitching mats, 9 holes and two bunkers.

Our private 270-yard driving range project is open for all residents to use which again is private and exclusive for guests staying at Hawkswood Country Estate.


We are pleased to welcome Peter Whiteford into our team as a teaching golf professional.

Peter is a former European Tour player who is experienced at teaching golfers at all levels of the game. He also coaches the Fife Men's team specialising in short game and performance. 

Whether you require a lesson on the driving range or short game area, learn how to get out of those infamous St Andrews bunkers or have a group clinic, Peter will be happy to assist you using our fantastic facilities at Hawkswood Country Estate.
