Old Tom Morris, 1889

This 1889 Old Tom Morris creation is one of the most handsome tests in the world. A collection of golf’s most fearsome-looking bunkers populate the course. The game’s best front nine includes the 217-yard, par-3 4th and the blind par-4 9th with its views of the Irish Sea, the Mountains of Mourne and the red-brick steeple of the Slieve Donard Hotel.
