Purest links course in the world......!

Have played Askernish several times, the last being August, 2014. This is an Old Tom Morris layout circa 1891 that was taken over by the shifting dunes after WWI due to economic conditions and was resurrected several years ago by a group of locals with the encouragement and support of the likes of Mike Keiser of Bandon Dunes. In restoring the course, the objective was to create a tribute to the craft and genius of Old Tom and have it play as it would have 125 years ago. This they have achieved in spades and it is truly the only links course anywhere that hasn't been modernized to pander to the whims of the North American golfer. BTW, the profile refers to the course as 'private', which is a mistake. It is 'semi-private' with many local and overseas members #myself included# but definitely is open to daily play. I am looking forward to returning at least twice this year to play this gem.....!
