The course and its history
This superb Georgian building has just recently been refurbished inside and out. The course - which was modelled by the 1910 St. Andrews Open winner James Braid is overlooked by the hotel. Braid himself is regarded as a world wide course creator and was at the forefront of course architects and playing ability in the early 1900s.
Braid's challenge was to transform a unique blend of exposed coastline and lush tree lined parkland into a course that would challenge every hickory shaped club. Like all good seaside course designers Braid made use of the strong easterly wind which can cause even the best players a headache. The wind hits your drive on 5, 10, and 15 from the right and on the 13 and 17 head on. With a strong wind behind you on 11 and 14 it makes club selection a nightmare, these holes made Braid both a genius and a demon.
