2010 Ranking: New Entry
Improvements since 2010 Rankings:
Course: Tom Doak has built 3 new holes on dunesland adjacent to the Firth of Forth, to be opened in June 2013. The course will be re-routed at that point to accommodate the new waterfront holes. The current first 3 holes will stay as part of a world-class practice facility, with the new routing starting at the current 4th hole
