We went out of our way to St. Andrew's just to see the Old Course and my husband looked like a kid in a candy store. It was absolutely beaufiful. While we did not play the course, we enjoyed the beauty of the course.

To any golfer - this is the place - the Home of Golf! One of the oldest in existence and the course and the club mean so much to golf! Was a beautiful day for our visit.
