6,941 yards and 18 holes make up this par 72 course make up this course, thought of as one of the world's toughest. The original design for the course, by James Braid, was thought to be too gentle for serious competitive play, so some trickier holes were introduced, the most formidable of which is the famous 6th: Hogan's Alley, considered one of the world's greatest par five holes.

The other famous thing about this course is its age: people have supposedly been playing golf along these shores since the 1520s.
