Old Course in St Andrews Yardage Book

The Old Course at St Andrews – hosting this week’s British Open in Scotland – was originally less designed than it developed in the early 15’sth Century, although architectural contributions were made by Daw Anderson in the 1850s and Old Tom Morris a few decades later.

Known as the home of golf, the Old Course ranks #2 on Golfweek’s list of the best classic courses built before 1960 in Britain and Ireland. It is also ranked #2 on Golfweek’s list of all classic international golf courses outside of the United States
