If you get near the lip of Hell Bunker on the 14th hole at St. Andrews, take my advice and chip out sideways.  

You won’t be sorry.  Jack Nicklaus tried to advance the ball forward again, again and again, to no avail.  The result?  A 10 on his scorecard.  The smartest thing you can do is make sure that you have a club in your hand that will either come up short or clears the lip easily.

St. Andrews Old Course – where the ghosts of golf come to haunt us. They do things like blow the wind in crazy directions, and bounce our golf balls into rough we can’t get out of. And every once in a while, the ghosts will put a curse on us and send us to Hell. Hell Bunker that is…

It’s the famed bunker of Saint Andrews Old Course’s 14th hole. Jack Nicklaus once made a 10 in it. A 10!

And this year it got a bit of a make over. Check out all the details in the video above. Careful… muahaha.

This time-lapse was recorded as the Old Course Greenkeeping team, led by Course Manager Gordon McKie, rebuild the infamous Hell Bunker on the 14th hole of the Old Course. The work took place during the winter months of 2014/15 in preparation for the 144th Open Championship.
