The Old Course

This seaside links course has evolved over six centuries and had originally 22 holes. This was reduced to 18 in 1764 to become the golf course we know today. There are many double greens as the front nine are played along the coast away from the famous old clubhouse and the back nine are played straight back, sharing many of the greens. The greens are so vast that this doesn't prove a problem. There are 112 bunkers on the course, the most famous being the one that guards the seventeenth green.
