Golf Scotland Open Qualifier

Leven Links Golf Course. A true sea-side course, the editior of Golf Monthly described the older part of the Leven Links as 'being one of the best stands of Bent and Fescues in Scotland'. Originally Leven was a 9 hole course, maintained by the players themselves and their families (a paid Keeper of the Green did not appear at Leven until 1876).

 

Scotscraig Golf Course. Scotscraig Golf Club began its existence in 1817 after a meeting was called by William Dalgleish in August of that year. In modern times, Scotscraig is used as a Final Open Qualifying course when The Open is played at St Andrews.

Britains Extraordinary Golf HolesBritain's 100 Extraordinary Golf Holes: An Illustrated Guide to the Country's Challenging, Unusual and Extreme Golf Britain's 100 Extraordinary Golf Holes is a collection of the most challenging, spectacular and unusual golf holes hidden amongst the country’s 4,000 courses. Complete with over 300 high quality photographs, every hole also comes with an outlined 'perfect trajectory', a commentary on each hole's remarkable attributes and other shots to enhance readers’ perspective. The authors of this remarkable work have received submissions from both individuals and golf clubs, resulting in a 'shortlist' of 800 holes that have been put to an independent panel of golfers, to arrive at a ranking of the best 100. Each has then been meticulously photographed, often using the remarkable panoramic 'widelux' format to bring each hole vividly to life. Many holes were originally simply part of the lay of the land over which local enthusiasts would enjoy a round, evolving over the years to become recognizable golf courses. From the country's most dreaded bunker, at this year's British Open venue, Royal St. Georges, to the lesser known gems such as Eyemouth's scarcely believable 6th over the massive jagged rocks of a North Sea inlet, the book features examples of Britain's immaculate modern courses as well as those whose terrain possesses qualities that no current day designer would possibly consider incorporating into a new layout. The result is a delightful, amazing and often puzzling collection of rarities that could only come from courses on the British Isles. Incredible, extreme and challenging; this book brings Britain's 100 Extraordinary Golf Holes to life in a visual feast combined with succinct and amusing commentaries.
