Old Tom Morris

Comment

Influential father-figure of our game, Old Tom Morris was a noted greenkeeper, a much loved and respected golf professional and a ground breaking course designer who is at least partly responsible for the creation of many beloved classic courses across the British Isles. Morris worked on some glorious parcels of linksland, and while many of his designs were later altered by the next generation of golf architects there are enough existing Old Tom elements to support the view that he was the first designer of note.
