The Jubilee Course was laid out in 1897 by John Angus, who was paid just under 180 pounds to turn the sliver of land between The New Course and the sea into a 12-hole links. In just under two months, Angus and his crew of 20 men had the golf course ready for play, just in time for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. In 1902, the course was expanded to 18 holes, which is quite remarkable since even a passing glance at a map of the parcel of land it occupies appears too narrow to accommodate one fairway, much less two side-by-side (one running out and one running back). Further renovations to the course were made in 1938-1946 by former Open champion Willie Auchterlonie. And the final version, as it plays today, was completed in 1988 by Donald Steel. These newest improvements include elevated tee boxes affording vistas of the firth and town and exposing tee shots to even more of the wind. At 6,742 yards and par 72 from the medal tees (6,424 men's, 5,956 ladies'), The Jubilee Course is truly the championship golf course at St. Andrews. In fact, it seems like The Open is just about the only championship not held on the Jubilee. Be warned, it plays every bit as tough as one would expect. -- Kiel Christianson
