The oldest course. The one with most tradition. Hosts the Open Championship every five years. The images that come to mind go from the end of "Charriots of Fire", to Jack Nicklaus in the Swilcan Bridge in 2005 playing his last Open Championship. Perhaps the most emotional moment of golfing history. As a golf course it's excellent: different kind of shots, some blind, short and long holes, and where the wind plays a very important part.
There are places on the course that are pure golf history. The 17th (Road Hole), a 495 yards par 4 can be considered its flagship hole, for its beauty, for its difficulty, blind shot out over the Old Course Hotel and its very difficult green. It has shown many great images, but the most striking is perhaps Migel Angel Jimenez by hitting the wall to land it on the green.
Wegolf Insider Tip
We lead 2 groups of 36 golfers in 2011 and 2012 and its an indescribable feeling to stand on the 1st tee. Standing there, no matter the age or the hcp, one is afraid of hitting a very poor shot. This phrase describes what the perfect Old Course produces: "The more I studied the Old Course, the more I loved it and the more i loved it, the more I liked studying it" (Robert Tyre "Bobby" Jones, founder of Augusta National and the best amateur in history)
