In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“The opening and closing holes of Lundin Links were also part of the original Innerleven course, and these were its star attractions. Architectural history buffs will study the short par-4 15th, which is the forerunner of the “Leven” hole that C.B. Macdonald paid homage to in many of his designs; but the cracking opener with its green high above the beach and the following three holes flush against Largo Bay are even better. Sadly, the newer inland holes are not of the same class, but even so, more people should include it on their pilgrimage to St. Andrews. If they ever have an open day of playing the original 18 holes between the two towns, I hope I’ll get an invite.”
Lundin Links Golf Club received a score of 5 out of 10 from Tom Doak.
