Panellists’ Comments: “The New is a brilliant test of golf which is unfortunately largely overshadowed by its more famous old sister”; “Many locals vastly prefer the New’s balance and minimalism to the Old Course’s eccentricities”; “Make sure you take care on the closing stages of the 18th as there will be plenty of people watching you from the club house windows.”
