Paying homage to the Himalayas Putting Course at St. Andrews, the Punchbowl is a 100,000-square-foot putting course by Tom Doak with Jim Urbina. Originally opening in 2014, this free resort putting green is a great place for your group to gather and settle any outstanding bets with your putters.
“You will find every kind of putt you can imagine out there, and probably a few you’ve never dreamed of. ”
– Tom Doak
