Played this course Dec 5th 2007 for £32 (winter rate). Played Muirfield the week before and to be fair although Muirfield does have some excellent holes I think it is overated. I prefered the New Course at St Andrews to Muirfield.If the Old Course was not next to the New I thnk the New Course would be rated higher. The Greens were in great condition a great suprise considering it was December. The course is a tough course to play (it was blowing a gale when I played it). I can understand some reviews saying that they played to their hadicap because although it is a tough test of golf, if you miss the fairways in the right places it does not punish you too much, miss the fairways in the wrong place and it will tear year heart out!.Great par threes, good bunkering, a dream to play!
