Cavendish which opened in 1925 was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie and unlike many early courses has not been altered in response to today’s pressures. At 5721 yds off the medal tees the course remains shorter than many yet still fulfils MacKenzie's belief that length has nothing to do with the quality of a hole (unlike the current committee at the Augusta National!). At the time MacKenzie laid out Cavendish he was a consultant to the R & A at St Andrews and perhaps had the challenge of the 11th (High In) on the Old Course when designing the 15th (Par 3) at Cavendish.
