St Andrews Links Jubilee Course
The Jubilee Course at St Andrews was originally opened as a 12-hole layout in 1897 and was extended to 18 holes in 1905. The third championship course at the Home of Golf, the Jubilee is considered by many to be the most challenging course on the famous Links. Built in 1897, it was originally intended for use by ladies and beginners; however, after seeing its prime golfing location between the New Course and the sea, the Jubilee was converted to a championship layout in 1988. Holes: 18 Type of course: Links
