The Old Course is also home of The Road Hole, the 17th, one of the world’s most famous golf holes. Among its unique features are: Players using the back tees cannot see where their tee shots land; which is not unusual except that they must take aim over a corner of The Old Course Hotel. Other than rough, the primary hazard in front of the green is a sand trap known as the “Road Hole Bunker”, an extremely deep bunker that is difficult to play out of. Over the back of the green, hazards include a tarmac roadway, as well as an old stone wall. Both are in play; a wayward shot can lead a player to take their next stroke off the roadway or to hit the face of the wall and take their chances with the ensuing bounce.
