Mick Morcom for "designing of the greens and the modern undulations on the fairways."
What few comment on is this course was over 6800 yards in 1930 - actually longer than it was in 1990.
Andrew,The legend at the club is that Soutar found the 10th hole first - which is hard to imagine or believe - and routed the whole course around it - which is easy to beleive given the 3rd green plays to it, the 4th hole plays away from it, the 7th runs behind the tee the 8th plays away, the 9th comes back to it, the 11th plays away and the 14th runs past it.On a small piece of land it was a brilliant way of taking up a largely useless piece of land when most architects would have moved the tees back at the 4th and 8th and probably snuck a few extra yards onto 3 and 9.
I don't think the 3rd green has moved. It looks to have the same relationship with the 10th hole it does now
The Google earth plan has a scale on it but not the map as far as I can see. I wouldn't read too much into the correlations between the two.
