Designed by Old Tom Morris in 1886, this challenging, historic course has spectacular views of the North Sea and goes almost straight out and straight back, with the angle changing subtly at each hole.

We played here on Wednesday 6th September. The course was in great condition, but if you go off line the rough is a monster. If you do find your ball you'll need a good shot to get out of it! Some tricky greens but overall...More
