DESIGNER: Dr Laidlaw Purves (1887)

DESCRIPTION: This links climbs among the dunes and epitomises old-fashioned golf, with lots of blind and semi-blind shots, impossibly deep pot bunkers and plenty of uneven lies. The first English course to hold an Open was discovered by two Scots who wanted to build a St Andrews in the south. 2011’s Open venue.
