Given the abundance of land for links courses, there aren't a whole lot of parkland courses in Scotland, but James Braid created a great one here in Dundee in the 1930s. The layout extends amid thick forest that is like an arboretum of Scottish and British trees, so great is the variety of species. Accurate driving is needed to get through them, and players quickly become aware of how unique each hole is. The scale is grand, featuring large tees, generous fairways and proportionately spacious greens. Doglegs abound, and pools and little gullies bring water into play on a number of holes. The stretch from the 11th through the 13th, a pair of tough par 4s bracketing a short hole, form a kind of Scottish Amen Corner; that middle 12th is called Davey Jones' Locker in memory of all the good balls that have been lost there.
