St Andrews Old Course

St Andrews Old

St Andrews Golf Course in Scotland

The ancient links land that forms the famous Old Course is the unaltered ground on which it has been played by golfers for over 600 years.

Ever changing winds produce a course which rarely plays the same way on two consecutive days.

With wide fairways and 7 double greens unique in golf today, it requires a sensible head, patience, and responds to respect and shot making rather than power.
