  A BRIEF HISTORY OF 9 THE LINKS - Click to download our property brochure  
  9 The Links dates back to 1872 and is steeped in history. It was only the third house to be built on the famous Links and is one of the few properties which remains a residential home. David Anderson know as “Old Daw” (a feathery golf ball maker, then senior caddie and Keeper of the Green at St Andrews from 1840 – 1856) built the house plus a separate house and shop, the house was occupied by Jamie Anderson the famous golfer son of Old Daw. (Jamie is one of only four golfers who have won three consecutive Opens).

The house and shop lay unoccupied during 1883. From 1884 – 1886 the house was used by the “St Andrews Working Mens Coffee House. In 1887 the renowned Golf club manufacturer Robert Forgan bought the property using it as his home and workshop, producing arguably the best clubs of that era. The house remained in the Forgan Family before being purchased by the Carmichael family whose home it was for many years. In 2004 9 The Links was purchased by an English businessman, who refurbished the house to its current magnificent state, to use during the 2005 Open and later as a corporate hospitality venue. In 2007 the house was bought by a business consortium before being placed on the market and purchased by Canadian businessman James Kinnear in early 2010.

During The Open 2010 Mr Kinnear hosted some legendary hospitality over the four days of the tournament at 9 The Links. James Kinnear has made 9 The Links his home with the addition of some amazing golfing artefacts, luxurious soft furnishing and by opening up the original fireplaces, lovingly adding living flame back to the sitting room and drawing room. His home is truly stunning and available for you to share the unique 9 The Links experience.
The house is over 3000 square feet and is known in the golfing world as “The Royal Box of Golf ” with its uninterrupted views from the 3rd floor balcony overlooking the 18th green of the Old Course.
