Opened for play in 1895, the New is a traditional out-and-back links with classic gorse-lined holes, narrow fairways, pot bunkers and undulating greens. The layout calls for a clear strategy with holes like the testing par 4s, 4th and 6th, demanding absolute precision from the tee. Many locals rate the New as their favourite course on the links.

Panellists’ comments: “The New has a very different feel and character to the Old right next door”; “Superb playing surfaces”
