It's like playing in the middle of town. The walk paths are filled with locals, tourists, and the occasional vehicle. If it's your first time, you will definitely need a caddy. Most of the greens are shared and some holes criss-cross each other. The scorecard yardage doesn't seem like much, but the strong wind and clever design make up for it. Fairways are hard and tight, and the bunkers deep and treacherous. Good course management is a must for maximum enjoyment. It was our first time playing the Old Course and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience.
Tip: You can hit it left all the way home. Most of the trouble is on the right.
