Its new name was taken from an area of land on the course that is inhabited by a family of deer. The protected area comes into view on several holes and provides abundant wildlife to be seen, including pheasants, rabbits, hares, deer, grouse and badgers.
With views over the golden beaches and medieval skyline of St Andrews, the course is simply beautiful. An American styled layout is a must play Championship course with water hazards, well manicured fairways, plenty bunkers and a good mix of Par 4's and 5's.
The clubhouse enjoys the best sea views from any clubhouse in Scotland and offers a traditional golfers fayre including signature dish of Pittenweem haddock and chips. The Torrance course has been chosen as the regional qualifying venue for the 2010 Open.
