Amazing night visit to the club house on the doors open day on 30 November. Stuffy, needing refurbished, but this has now happened. Interesting history, original belt and claret jug. Tricky converse with a member trying to be helpful by inviting me back but indicating to my wife that she can go any do the shopping during my visit. Oops.... More

I've been to the Masters and now the British Open at St. Andrews. My pilgrimage as a golfer is fulfilled. Walking around, we (spectators/golfers) all had smiles on our faces. Course is spectacular. Service from everyone involved with the tournament at least was top-notch. Now I know why (watching the British Open in the past) everyone is wearing jackets and... More

The Royal & Ancient St Andrews Golf course can be best described as a quintessential golf aficionados haven. Visiting for my first time this year, I was highly impressed by the high organisational standards and management in place. Access to the place was smooth and hassle free. Security at the gates always friendly and helpful - something not so common... More

Go if your a lover of the game. I missed the ballot but went along as a single and got on within an hour of speaking with the starter. Staff were really helpful and made the experience even better. Played with an American (Jay) and two Germans (Ute and Gert) and we were asked to keep up the pace by... More

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.
