THE HOME OF GOLF

$s4 Not everything on this page is in St Andrews but we were based there on a trip in 1993 so its all fairly close by.

The photo above is of the world famous Old Course at St Andrews, the home of golf. Golf was pioneered here on the sandy links, with earliest records dating from 1457, so its now a bit of a shrine for golfers.

We were staying only a few miles from this lovely town. Although it is a bit golf obsessed there, its also home to Scotlands oldest University (now attended by Prince William) and the ruins of the 12th century cathedral, St Andrews at one time having been the ecclesiastical capital of Scotland. Its a good place to base yourself in order to explore the area.

    The St. Andrews Golf Course always looks so hard during the British Open. I can't imagine what my score would be, LOL :-)
