At times, disentangling an older-type golf course layout on a traditional English golf club can be a difficult and convoluted thing to do.

In the UK, there are many, many older courses, often around 100-years old or more, with bunkering and layout increasingly affected by the longer shot distances that golfers appear to be achieving on a regular basis.
