The Old Course at St. Andrews returns to the spotlight this week as the best golfers in the world compete for the Claret Jug.
The Old Course at St. Andrews is perhaps the most famous golf course in the world — and for good reason. With a founding that dates back nearly 500 years, the Old Course has a history longer than many countries. No course has seen more than these links.
This week, the Home of Golf steps into the spotlight yet again as it hosts the 150th Open Championship. And while player fitness and equipment technology have evolved over the last century and a half, the Old Course should still present a proper test for the best in the world.
Check out below for a look at the Old Course’s scorecard, yardage book and course map.
