Let's get the record straight. This is a very good golf course. Nearly every hole requires good shot making, if not great. I do believe that it is more difficult than the Old (your poor shots will be dealt with more harshly than on the Old) and is a pleasure to play. Anyone who says that the New is not at least good probably can't appreciate the shot making and good hitting reqiured to get around it. This is links golf at near the highest level and a natural, well though out design by Old Tom. Do not miss this course if you are in St. Andrews. Playing the Old & the New will be a links golf experience you will enjoy and won't forget.
