ST ANDREWS TOUGHEST COURSE
The Jubilee Course opened in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victorias Diamond Jubilee. Originally a 12 hole course for Ladies and beginners to work on their skills. The links is now is considered by golfers to be the most challenging of the 7 St Andrews Links Courses.
The Jubilee is the closest course to the sea. It occupies a very narrow piece of land between the New Course and the coastline. As a result, the fairways are very narrow and the close proximity to the sea makes the weather and playing conditions very changeable
In 1905 the rising demand for golf resulted in the course being expanded to 18 holes. in 1938 by Champion Golfer Willie Auchterlonie made further improvements to the course such as elevated tee decks.
In 1988 The R & A decided that the Jubilee would be modernised and brought up to a Championship standard. That prestigious project was given to distinguished amateur golfer David Steele now known as ‘The Open Doctor’. Steele gave the course some real tough characteristics. He did this by narrowing many fairways, introducing out of bounds boundaries and Deep (Hell) Bunkers on many of the holes. His masterstroke was the further narrowing of the fairways. This resulted in a very narrow first cut of rough immediately followed by thick wild rough and Gorse. These changes made the course the challenging Championship Course that it is today.
The Jubilee will be an unforgettable challenge and experience for all golfers. Expect tough greens and remember to stay well away from the gorse and deep Rough. If the wind is blowing you really need to hit the ball straight and keep your wits about you until your safely back in the majestic clubhouse.
