“Two of the most famous courses in the world, Augusta National and Pebble Beach, have dropped in GOLF's Top 100 Courses in the World ranking,” writes Josh Berhow and upon further reading I note he writes, “Scotland’s Royal Dornoch jumped five spots to get into the top 10, which played a hand in knocking Pebble Beach to 11.”

Unable to find some YouTube footage that captures my experience of playing Royal Dornoch I was then presented with some footage of Askernish.
Way back in May, 2010 my blog headline read, “Finding Old Tom Morris’ Hidden Gem” and I wrote, “Finding a golf ball you thought you’d lost in long rough always brings a sense of relief. But coming across a long forgotten golf course designed by Old Tom Morris is something else.”

Now thanks to Golfing World and YouTube it’s now possible to view for yourself the course and its amazing story.
