The New Course is often regarded as the oldest “new” course in the world. A classic links course with undulating fairways and delightfully challenging greens, it was set out in 1895 by Old Tom Morris.

Named the New to differentiate it from the original course at the Links which became the Old Course, the course remains one of the finest examples of Morris’ work to be found anywhere.

Built on the same type of sandy soil, there are many similarities with the more famed Old. The natural land features humps and hollows, unpredictable bounces and another array of skilfully placed deep bunkers.

A customary out-and-back links, there are shared fairways, thick gorse bushes and a double green servicing the third and 15th holes.
