John Jameson of whiskey fame used this land as his own private course in the 1850s, but by the end of the century 18 holes had been designed and opened for play – though it's not a formally designed course, it's a natural links surrounded by water on three sides laid out in two sections of nine holes each. The whole course is 7,300 yards, the very best of which are supposed to be the putting greens. One of the most beautiful sections of the course is the par three 15th which runs 188 yards along the shore, but there's sand on the other side of it as well, in the form of three bunkers.
