ST.ANDREWS

St Andrews is recognised internationally as the “Home of Golf”, a distinction based upon six centuries of sporting tradition.

The variety and quality of courses mark the town as the premier destination for golfers from around the globe. As all are within ten minutes drive time of the town centre, there is nowhere else in the world where you will find such a concentration of high quality courses, including eight of championship class.

The range of courses and excellent value provided by St Andrews mean any golfer, regardless of ability or experience, can sample the town’s unique atmosphere.

The oldest golf course in the world has many remarkable features which help make it so special to golfers around the world.

It is the Home of Golf where golf was first played 600 years ago and yet it remains a real test of golf for today’s champions. Despite its reputation and status, it is a public course and is one of six public courses on St Andrews Links.

The Old Course is also unusual in that it starts and finishes in the town, but its truly remarkable feature is that in today’s modern golfing world, a course which has evolved over six centuries, remains a true test of championship golf.

The “New” Course of St Andrews is hardly new. Over 100 years old, The New Course is one of the finest golf courses in the world today. Why the name? The St Andrews Trust came up with the name merely to distinguish it from the “Old” Course.

The New Course is a classic links course which uses the natural features of the land to create a first class golfing challenge. The course has the traditional out and back layout, with the 18th green just to the right of the first tee. It also has, in the great St Andrews tradition, shared fairways and even a double green at the 3rd and 15th holes.
