In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“Rosemount has been revered as Scotland’s finest inland course since Old Tom Morris played the original nine holes in the 1890’s, but a lot of that is due to lack of competition; it is more comparable to Pinehurst No. 1 than to No. 2. The 17th hole is a MacKenzie original, but my favorite hole of all was the 2nd hole on the Wee course, a short par-4 where you play a running approach underneath the two leaning fir trees that flank the entrance to the green.”
Rosemount received a score of 5 out of 10 from Tom Doak and one of his co-authors.
