Harry Colt’s first design in 1894, later modified by Tom Simpson and Sir Guy Campbell, Rye is a fiendishly difficult course. The unpredictable and fierce winds and a fascinating variety of stances necessary for shot-making create difficulty, despite a par of 68 over 6,300 yards. Rye has the feel of a walk back in time, an old fashioned, traditional links. Five excellent short holes face elevated greens. Nine par fours exceed 400 yards, but the driver often stays in the bag to ensure position on the undulating hard fairways bordered by wispy rough. The landing areas are sometimes narrow but there are several excellent holes, the third, fourth and 13th stand out.
