Converted into 18 holes in 1979 by the late Sir Henry Cotton, the New Course is also a stern test of golf. Many of the holes run alongside the Old Course's holes and although it isn't as long, its tighter fairways and smaller greens make it an examining challenge.
The course is not long by modern standards and is not designed to make length an all important factor. That said, the official yardage of 6,004 yards does not adequately reflect the stern test posed by the New Course at Lossiemouth, for there are some wonderful holes here. Furthermore, two extremely short par three's on the front nine mean that the rest of the holes on the course have plenty of length to challenge even the finest of golfers.
Indeed, the quality of the test posed by the New course is easily illustrated by the fact that the Scottish Universities Team Match play Championships has been held here for the last three years. The event is staged in April when the weather conditions can make the challenge even harder, but the fact that such an event comes here at that time of year is great praise for the green keeping staff who keep the links well manicured all year round.
