Any visit to Scotland is not complete without a visit to St Andrews. Although this beautiful little town is most famous for its golf course there is much to offer for everyone. Of course, if you are a golfer, you must sneak in a visit to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and walk a few holes of the Old... More

Congratulations to the R&A for organising under very testing weather a fantastic 144th Open Championship- very well done. Possible improvements in future years limit the multiple helicopters over the course which are a noisy distraction for players and spectators ( and sound very loud on TV) the scenic pictures are nice but that's all. Also tickets at £70 a day... More

You need to be a golfer to enjoy this .Great venue well organised and reasonably priced for what you get.Unfortunately it was cold and wet but that's Scotland's weather unpredictable.

There is just a feeling like it is holy ground. The course just as it looks on TV for every Open ever played there.....just better. Nothing beats the real thing. An amazing place to be ...and see the players practicing, the fairways, the greens, the tees! Life is to be complete if you play golf and come here.

Our tour was touted as the Royal & Ancient Golf Club tour but it mostly was walk around town and look at part of the club. Of course you could go into the clubhouse and make purchases. As a non-golfer the town was fun and the historical aspect also very good. Every shop within about a mile has something to... More
