Last night in the Ontgolf.ca travel section, I posted a story I wrote after my first trip to Scotland, a visit that included a round at Turnberry’s Ailsa course, which will host the British Open this week
for the first time in 15 years. I was — and remain — very fond of the course, and will do something longer on it tomorrow. I’ve always enjoyed the fact that — for the most part — the public can play each of the Open Championship courses. That’s surely a big difference from the U.S. Open or even the Canadian Open, both of which are primarily played on private courses.
In the meantime, here’s a fine hole-by-hole of what many think is the most stunning seaside course without the word “pebble” in its name.
