Adjacent to the same sacred ground as the Old Course at St Andrews, The New Course plays clockwise which many find to be the more natural routing. This means all the trouble is on the left, and since there is only one double green, it makes for a more traditional links design.
The New Course boasts undulating fairways carved through blankets of gorse bushes, along with challenging-but-normal-sized greens, which naturally are defended by normally obnoxious bunkers.
This great links is simply one of Scotland’s most hidden of hidden gems, even as it sparkles in such plain sight – The New Course, St Andrews.
