Out With the Old

The bulldozers returned to St. Andrews this week to begin Phase 2 of the controversial changes to the Old Course. With last year’s alterations to holes 2, 7, 11, and 17 completed, work is now underway at 3, 4, 6, 9, and 15. The changes include recontouring of green surrounds, moving bunkers closer to greens, shaving back a fairway mound at the 4th, and adding new bunkers at holes 3 and 9—the first new bunkers on the Old Course since 1949. The R&A’s consulting architect Martin Hawtree is supervising the work which is intended to stiffen the challenge of the Old Course in preparation for the return of the Open Championship in 2015.
