The oldest ‘new’ course in the world, the second course at the Home of Golf was built by the Keeper of the Green, Tom Morris in 1895 and it was imaginatively named to differentiate from its famous neighbor. Boasting undulating fairways and challenging greens, the New Course is a classic test of links golf.
The second course at the Home of Golf was built by the Keeper of the Green, Tom Morris in 1895 and it was imaginatively named to differentiate from its famous neighbour. Boasting undulating fairways and challenging greens, the New Course is a classic test of links golf.
Opened in April 1895, the course was built in response to increasing demand for golf at St Andrews, both from locals and from the visitors who were flocking to the town in increasing numbers on the recently constructed railway.
It has frequently been said that if the St Andrews New Course were not situated next to the Old, then its star would have shone with a far greater degree of brilliance.
It’s a shame in many ways that such a great course has to be in the shadow of an illustrious neighbour. The New Course at St Andrews is a golf experience for the ages.

The St Andrews Old Course is considered the oldest golf course in the world and commonly known as ‘The Home of Golf’. It is a public course over common land in St Andrews, Fife, Scotland and is held in trust by The St Andrews Links Trust under an act of Parliament.
The Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognised across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status it remains a public golf course, open to all.
“I fell in love with it the first day I played it. There’s just no other golf course that is even remotely close”
