One Of The Toughest Bunkers In World Golf… Has Been Made Harder!

Midway through one of the most iconic Open venues lies one of the most fearsome par-3 holes in the sport. And offering a cold embrace alongside the green of said hole is one of golf’s toughest bunkers.

Called ‘The Coffin,’ this particular trap – which carefully guards the left side of the world-famous ‘Postage Stamp‘ green on the eighth hole at Royal Troon Golf Club – has claimed many an Open title charge and the scorecards of countless amateurs via its steep walls and claustrophobic shape, where it’s easy to get stuck close to the tall lips and rack up high scores.
