New Course, St Andrews Links
St Andrews, Scotland
This has come to be known as the ‘local’s favourite’ due to the tighter layout, and some have argued it to be better than the famous Old Course! This shows that there is something special about the New Course at St Andrews Links. The fairways undulate less, but still provide a challenge to golfers with the contour of the hills – the most memorable hole is the par-4, 10th, nestled in between two hills and running through a gorge. The tricky greens are typical of a links course and add to the challenge. Old Tom Morris laid out this golf course in 1895 and is still considered one of the best in the UK; it just goes to show that his work is timeless and definitely worth visiting.
