Description

18 hole, 6566 yards, SSS72

In 1764, the Society of St Andrews Golfers, which later became the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, decided that some holes were too short and combined them. This reduced the course to eighteen holes and created what became the standard round of golf throughout the world. The track through the whin bushes on which the Old Course evolved was so narrow that golfers played to the same holes going out and coming in.
