The King's Course, The Gleneagles Resort
St Andrews, Scotland
King's Course overview
The par-4 9th hole is a wonderful golf hole with golfers required to hit a tough drive into a valley before hitting an even harder approach shot to an elevated green. Anything short on the approach will roll back a long way or find one of two frontside bunkers.

The King’s Course hosted an informal match between Great Britain and the United States in 1921 which laid the foundations for the Ryder Cup matches we know today. This inaugural match was won by Great Britain 9-3 and the course designer James Braid played on the British team.
