The design trio of Jack Newton, Graeme Grant and the late John Spencer craftily wrapped the 18 holes at Links Lady Bay across a mildly furrowed parcel of land overlooking the sea but bisected by a spur. Most of the holes sit on the seaside portion of the site, although several holes on the back nine meander around the inland side and create a neat point of difference. Notable for Grant’s ambitious yet artistic green complexes, Lady Bay wears a different dress depending on the elements. It is a different golf course when firm and fast versus lush or when the winds switch with the seasons.
