The Loop — Black 


The Black routing plays clockwise around The Loop, starting to the left of the 18th green and playing away to the white flag on the horizon. You’ll play to white flags for the front nine, and red flags for the back, just like The Old Course at St. Andrews. If you’re ever unsure of which way to go, keep left!

The Black Course is a less traditional setup, with a tough start and an easier finish. Par for the front side is only 34, with three short holes at the 2nd, 5th and 8th, and just one par-5. The stretch of holes from the 4th to the 8th is your best opportunity to make some birdies; starting with the 9th, you’ll face a bunch of difficult holes all the way around to the 16th, until a short par-5 and a relatively short par-4 close out the round.

Some of designer Tom Doak’s favorite holes include:

  • The long par-4 3rd, with its green sitting out on the edge of a ridge
  • The short par-4 4th, where a drive to the left opens up a view of the green through a narrow slot between mounds
  • The short 8th, where there are bunkers right up at the front of the green, but plenty of fairway behind it
  • The par-4 12th, sweeping downhill through a beautiful little valley, with bunkers pinching the landing area just short of where you need to be to get a good look at the green around the corner
  • The long 14th, playing up into the back of the Redan green, where the short grass to the left of the green presents as difficult a third shot as being in the bunker you were trying to avoid
