Golf Course Histories


The evolution of golf courses as shown through photographs.



Save the Old Course

Beginning 26 November 2012 Peter Dawson and Martin Hawtree flattened St Andrews' 11th green ("Eden"). Dawson admits the changes, involving nine holes total, are the most significant in a century.
St Andrews is a public course. The public were not invited to comment.
Please email the Links Trust and voice your disapproval of the changes and / or the non-public process.
This site is dedicated to the previous generations of course stewards who preserved and protected the 11th green and other architectural features original to The Old Course.
