Golf Course/
St Andrews New

The New Course was the second golf course to be constructed at St Andrews and was named "The New" simply to differentiate it from the existing course "The Old".

Now over 100 years old, it is probably the oldest "new" course in the world. 

Opened in April 1895, the course was built in response to increasing demand for golf at St Andrews, both from locals and from the ever-increasing numbers of visitors who were flocking to the town in increasing numbers on the recently constructed railway. 

The R&A engaged W Hall Blyth, an Edinburgh civil engineer, to design the New Course, and entrusted the layout to "Old" Tom Morris and his right-hand man David Honeyman.  The result is a classic links course which uses the natural features of the land to create a first class golfing challenge.

The course has the traditional out and back layout, with the 18th green just to the right of the first tee. It also has, in the great St Andrews tradition, shared fairways and even a double green at the 3rd and 15th holes.

The New Course is one that should be a part of every golf package. Guests have called the New Course a "true test of golf" and say you "can't go wrong" taking your golf break at this St. Andrews gem.
