DISTINCTIVE COURSE FEATURES - THE RUMPLE
There are significant differences among links courses – in topography, sea views, fairway contours, bunker styles, green complexes, landscape mosaic, and even the smallest of course details, e.g. path and step details. Distinctive Course Features is a photographic journey with text and music that highlights Castle Stuart’s distinctive character in the world of links golf. We begin here with the RUMPLE - Many links courses are known for their uneven or ‘rumpled’ fairways.Fairways can be flat in areas and ‘rumpled’ in others with differences in ‘lie and stance’ of tactical significance. Greenside rumple can disturb the release of an approach to a ‘short pin’ from certain angles. ‘Rumple’ is inherent to the charm of links golf that Castle Stuart embraces.
