Year opened: 1914

The Eden Course was officially opened for play in July 1914. It was originally designed by Harry S. Colt. It was later on redesigned by Donald Steel in 1989.

The Eden Course was not too difficult but it was not an easy course to play too. But it was definitely difficult than the Strathtyrum Course. It was also not as flat and straight as the Strathtyrum Course.

The Eden Course was also more forgiving than the New Course. But even if it was more forgiving than the New Course, the fairways were still not that wide. The grass were also high surrounding the fairways.

If I recommended to place your golf ball on the fairways at the Strathtyrum Course, you must do the same thing in this course or risk losing your golf balls on the high grass.

The Par 3’s were maybe short but they were actually quite tricky as they were not flat at all.

Considering that the Eden Course was the fourth course that was built at St. Andrews Links, you would be happy to see the results of your game at the Eden Course compared to the New Course.

It is possible to play your handicap at the Eden Course. You just need to be careful. Do not play too aggressively just because it is flatter than the New Course.
