I took my chances and turned up on spec on 30 Dec as a singleton, got a game with the first pair out, an excellent pair of chaps from Edinburgh who couldn't have been friendlier or more welcoming. We played the Old, got soaked in the December drizzle, played off mats on the odd occasion we ended up on the fairway and had an absolute whale of a time! There isn't much to be said about St Andrews, the links and the Old that hasn't been said before, but it's great to see the Links Trust isn't complacent and doesn't rest on its laurels - there is work going on in several places which will ensure the golfer's experience will keep improving. I also didn't see a single pitch mark on a green that wasn't one of ours - I'm not sure I've been able to say that before at courses I've visited! Well done to all, I can't wait to return. Heaven indeed!
