At A Glance

  • The green complex on 4 is world-class.
  • Tom Doak recommends golf architecture students pay special attention to the bunkering and routing.

Not much of Old Tom Morris' course remains. George Combe lengthened the course with holes 11, 12 & 13 attributed to him. In 1926, H.S. Colt redeveloped 4, 8, 9, 11, 12 & 15. Donald Steel then reworked 16, 17 &  18 in 2005.
