For me this is tougher than the Old Course and it is a misnomer. Although called the New Course, it is over 100 years old. Well worth a visit and easier to get a tee time.

Back again plaing Old, New, and Jubilee. Old can't be beat, the New is an absolute charmer, and Jubilee is the real hidden gem. Play the New Course and respect its subtlty. Really, I love this course, its availability, price and history. Just like the Old Course, it takes time to get to really know this sweetheart.

The course was in great condition, greens a... More

The new course is harder than the old course and it lived up to on our round. Winds that would straighten up a slice to the wrist breaking rough. Overall this course is a great day out and will provide you with a array of challenges.

The New Course was the starter for our 3 day golfing excursion and was the one course where fairway mats were not required. an excellent test of links golf not quite as severe as the Old Course but well worth a visit - a must for all golfers.

The best of the rest of the Town courses. Some locals find this the best course but for me it's a distant second to the old course.

We decided to play the new course after traveling the red eye to Scotland with out sleep. subsequently we played the famous old course. As a golf course, I liked the new course as much as the old. However, of course, playing the old course is a must, as it is where the history of the game is. Nonetheless, I... More
