The New Course
6625 yards, par 71
The oldest ‘new’ course in the world, the second course at the Home of Golf was built by the Keeper of the Green Tom Morris in 1895 and it was imaginatively named to differentiate from its famous neighbour. Boasting undulating fairways and challenging greens, the New Course is a classic test of Links golf.
Advance bookings for the New Course can be made at least 2 days ahead and the full green fee is payable in advance. Any bookings for play less than 2 days ahead can be made by approaching the Starter on the day of play. Tee times are allocated on a first come first served basis and payment is made on the day to the Starter.
The New Course is an understated, hidden gem! It really is a classic test of true Links golf.
