St Pierre - Old Course

The course was designed by Ken Cotton in 1961 from a deer park thronged with highly prized trees that dominate the scene and subdue most of those trying to thread their way through.

The most brazen is the giant chestnut that rules the second fairway but even its victims tend to be calmed by the fact it has been there since 1600.

St Pierre has hosted the Dunlop Masters and the Curtis Cup and in 1996, staged the Solheim Cup. The course has seen many improvements recently.

Professionals and amateurs alike find the par three 18th across a lake and uphill towards the ancient chimneystacks both daunting and memorable.
