If you like golf, you must visit St.Andrews. Nice shops, free entry to walk across the golf courses and take a picture of the famous bridge on hole 18 of The Old Course.

We enjoyed to see the activities of the preparation for the coming Woman Golf Tournament and of course,... More

If you golf you must visit St Andrews. It is magnificent. Can't compare it to any other place or golf course I have been. Today there was a tournament so got to see some great golf on a great course. Wonderful experience!

I had my first and only experience playing the Old Course. It was a nice day but somewhat windy. The experice was great. I would not suggest playing the first time without a caddie. My caddie did a wonderful job keeping me hitting the ball in the right direction. He read putts well which was difficult because the wind affects... More
