No 11 – St Andrews New
A pitch shot from the adjacent Old Course in St Andrews, the New Course is arguably the toughest test in the town and one that is admired by many. Given the ‘New’ title to differentiate from its illustrious neighbour, the course was in fact built by the ‘Keeper of the Green’, Old Tom, back in 1895. Boasting undulating fairways and challenging greens, the New is a classic test of links golf and similar in character to the Old. The layout was based on the traditional out and back routing, and among its most famous features are the shared fairways and a double green at the 3rd and 15th holes.
