WHAT’S IT LIKE?
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.
