St. Andrews Links - New Course
A classic links course set out in 1895 by Old Tom Morris. It is known by many as the oldest “new” golf course in the world, and its name originated to differentiate it from the original course at the Links, later became known as the Old Course. The course has a traditional out and back layout. If the New were set anywhere other than directly next to the Old course it would stand out much more than it does.
With the traditional out and back layout, the New is characterised by well-designed greenside and fairway bunkers, and tough homeward holes. Although overshadowed by its illustrious neighbour, the New Course is a must play for any golfer visiting the town of St Andrews.
