While the Dutch may have a few grumbles, few would argue that St Andrews is the home of golf. No less than seven courses adorn the links at St Andrews, which appears to be god-given for golf, while the coastline around the East Neuk of Fife is scattered with some of the world's purest and most traditional golfing venues.
Basing a golf tour in St Andrews, visitors may want to head for The Dukes Course, The new Torrance Course at the Fairmont resort, The Castle Course or Lundin Links where the courses have consistently staged qualifying for the Open Championship. For the ultimate St Andrews experience, a stop off at the almighty Kingsbarns is essential - Kyle Phillips' creation is the best new course in the world, and is destined to be a classic.
St Andrews, or ‘the auld grey toon', oozes the spirit of golf, and it is not uncommon to see golfers in the pubs still complete with spikes and clubs. The town is strikingly beautiful, especially around the castle and cathedral ruins that are perched above the bay, while the number of pubs per head of population is amazing!
The life of any serious golfer is incomplete without a pilgrimage to the home of golf, so experience the golfing ultimate with the St Andrews golf tour experience.
