There is simply nothing quite like St Andrews & Fife, the home of golf, steeped in history, this magnificent golfing region is home to St Andrews and this ancient town is a golfers’ paradise and a must-visit as a part of any golfer visiting Scotland. 

The quaint town of St Andrews is located on the east cost of Fife in Scotland and is renowned for its University and Golf and known globally as the ‘home of golf.’ The Royal & Ancient Golf Club, founded in 1754, exercises legislative authority over the game, crafting and administering the rules in every country but the United States and Mexico.

Aside from the Old Course, St Andrews is home to many other famous names including Kingsbarns, Castle Course, St Andrews New Course, St Andrews Jubilee, and many other great golf courses.

THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP AT st andrews old course.

The Old Course has been the most frequent host of The Open Championship with renowned champions – Seve Ballesteros, Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo, and Jack Nicklaus to lift the Claret Jug the most famous course of them all.

Create your own memories and follow in the footsteps of golfing history as you step onto the 1st tee and venture across the Swilcan Burn; the Seven Sisters guarding the right side of the Old Course at St. Andrews’ 5th fairway; the Ginger Beer hole; Bobby Jones’ bunker on the 11th where the great man actually tore up his scorecard as a young man playing the Old Course at St. Andrews and walked off of the course; and of course Hell Bunker on the Old Course’s 14th hole where Jack Nicklaus needed 5 attempts to escape in the 1995 Open held at the Old Course at St. Andrews Scotland; the devilish Road Hole Bunker and the famous Road itself behind the 17th at the Old Course at St. Andrews; a quick break in the concentration for the “must-take” photo on the Old Course’s Swilcan Bridge; the Valley of Sin and at the 18th green back in the town of St. Andrews Scotland itself at the foot of the famous R&A Clubhouse. 

Those experiencing the Old Course for the first time are blown away by the true scale of the 1st and 18th, the width of the fairway, the close proximity to the surrounding buildings, we remind our guests to appreciate the Old Course from the start, Bobby Jones famously said “those that learn the subtleties of the Old Course at St. Andrews end up knowing the course for exactly what it is, nothing less than one of the finest golf courses in the entire world, delight in the Old Course challenge, take no step around the Old Course for granted, and nurture your appreciation for it and ingulf yourself in the history of St Andrews”.

St Andrews is what the game really means. Almost all the great golfers have played the Old Course, and the course has always demanded strong golf. I wanted to be art of St Andrews. I wanted to win on the Old Course. If you’re going to be a player people will remember, you have to win the Open at St Andrews.

Jack Nicklaus (1970 & 1978 Open Champion at St Andrews)

This is as special as it gets. The home of golf. This is something you dream about. All players that want to win The Open Championship, automatically you go right to St Andrews. This is it; this is as good as it gets.
