This angle is looking towards the clubhouse with the station on the left and the town at the back right.

The first ever Open Championship was held here in 1860 and was won by Willie Park of Musselburgh with a score of 174 over 36 holes. 3 rounds of 12 holes in those days.

A cairn just out of shot to the right marks the original first tee, a par 6 of 578 yards, the green of which is still in use as the present day 16th.

The building with the curved white roof in the top right distance is Atlantic House, the CAA control centre for the north Atlantic region.

To take these photographs at all permission in advance was obtained from air traffic control - the CAA Directorate of Airspace Policy - for which as always, many thanks.
