That must have been really confusing. One wouldn't know whether they were coming or going. Literally.

Why 22 holes?
#3: Norma Dee (norm0908) on Aug 3, 2013
The Old Course was pivotal to the development of how the game is played today. For instance, in 1764, the course had 22 holes. The members would play the same hole going out and in with the exception of the 11th and 22nd holes. The members decided that the first four and last four holes on the course were too short and should be combined into four total holes (two in and two out). St Andrews then had 18 holes and that was how the standard of 18 holes was created.
