Prince Andrew, Duke of York hit the first tee shot at the inaugural match here in 1995, giving the course its name. Duke’s is the only non-links course at St Andrews and is the course built by the Old Course Hotel. Despite its location next to the 17th hole of the Old Course at St Andrews, the hotel could not guarantee its guests tee times there. Hence a new inland course was built for their use.
