The course, measuring 6512 yards with a par of 71, and designed by James Braid in 1932 (5 times open champion and Britain's greatest course architect), provides a challenge to every golfer, especially the classic dogleg ninth, the demanding seventeenth known as 'Braids Best', and the daunting elevated tee to the final green.
Braid's achievement was to construct a course in harmony with the existing landscape, that did not prevent him from introducing spectacular touches of theatre. The most striking effect come after 11 holes: suddenly this parkland course reveals an unexpected seaward aspect, looking out towards the open bay.
