Review for St Andrews (New)

Reviewer Score:


I first played the New Course six years ago on a dark day, rain-soaked and windy. Most difficult and one could hardly assess, let alone appreciate, the course under such conditions. On this occasion, we had a most beautiful day, sun-soaked and mild with the course in great condition. I loved the New. I'm not sure it has any outstanding features, although I especially enjoyed playing the short par three eighth, followed by the ninth, a blind tee shot to a broad and inviting fairway. I saw the comments on the fifth. I guess I'm not as observant as some of the raters are, but I still enjoy the approach shot to five, framed by the bunkers left and right. I find the New fun to play, an excellent complement to the Old Course. I'm only sorry we didn't have time to fit in the Jubilee on this trip. BGD
