At A Glance

Tom Doak recommends paying special attention to the green contouring and routing at North Berwick Golf Club.

Pit, Perfection, Redan and Gate are perhaps the most celebrated stretch of holes in golf to the architectural student.

Redan provided Alister MacKenzie with the inspiration for the 6th at Augusta National. It also was one of Herbert Fowler's four ideal golf holes as chosen in 1913, although his Redan had water at the head of the green.
