THE BIRTHPLACE OF GOLF
A golf bucket list is not complete without the experience of St Andrews Old Course. After all, this is where golf began. There is a nostalgic sense of timelessness here, but the courses have evolved to present the same challenges to today’s players as they did to legendary greats Tom Morris, Bobby Jones, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. St Andrews is as much the “Mecca of Golf” to the great champions as it is to the mere devotee.
The great links courses are strung like a necklace of pearls around the throat of the Firth of Forth — from Dunbar, North Berwick, Muirfield and Gullane on the south side of the Firth, up to the great bridges and back along the north shore, past Leven, Lundin, Dumbarnie, Elie, Anstruther, Crail and Kingsbarns, through St Andrews to Scotscraig, Panmure and Carnoustie. All are readily accessible from St Andrews, but in the town itself, the St Andrews Links Trust courses offer the tough tests of the Old, New and Jubilee and Eden courses — all within walking distance.
