The Old Course at St Andrews has always been on my "to do" list and this year, to celebrate my 50th birthday, I finally got the opportunity and what an experience!!!!
As well as The Old Course we played The Castle Course and both in their own way were special. One of my golf partners described the experience on The Old Course the best when he said that he felt that ghosts of the past were looking down on him and we all knew exactly what he meant. Not discounting the tee shot down the first, which brings its own special set of nerves, I was shaking like a leaf for the first 3 or 4 holes as I finally came to terms with where I was and what I was doing. I would agree with the comments of others in that hiring a caddy adds to the whole experience as you try to navigate your way between the many bunkers positioned to catch either the uninformed or wayward.
If this is something that you have been planning to do but just put off I woulod certainly say just do it. It will be something you will never forget and will remember for the rest of your life.
Enjoy. Julian Brown
