Many of those lucky enough to play their lion’s share of golf on this particular stretch of the Fife coast regard the New to be a more challenging and varied layout than the Old.

It is certainly a far sterner test off the tee with the fairways gently shaping in both directions and gorse providing a constant danger.

The greens are also significantly smaller than the Old’s, placing a greater emphasis on the quality of your approach play.

Always kept in pristine condition, the New is, in many ways, a more traditional links examination than its more illustrious older brother. NT

+ Harder than the Old Course; brilliant value
– Lacks the views of many of St Andrews’ other courses
