Reg­u­larly used for Open qual­i­fiers, golf has been played on this ven­er­a­ble turf for more than 200 years – many be­lieve it to be one of Scot­land’s finest tra­di­tional links. With a wall run­ning just in front of the skinny 13th green, and a deep swale right across the mid­dle of the 16th green, the course has its quirks, but at its best – as on the heav­ily con­toured sig­na­ture par three 15th – this is a mag­nif­i­cent test of golf. The pot bunkers are small and deep, the rough in high sum­mer, puni­tive. The wind makes a two-iron more use­ful than a five-wood.
