St Andrews Links
St Andrews is the legendary Home of Golf. The British Open has been played here in Fife 28 times and now returns on a five year rotation. Nick Faldo, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods are all among the golfing superstars to have won on the landmark Old Course, perhaps the most famous course in the world. It is still a public course, though you must enter the ballot for a slot. St Andrews Links Trust also operate another five courses, together forming the largest golfing complex in Europe. The quintet include the New Course, an ‘Old’ Tom Morris designed icon that is over a hundred years old. Then there is the Castle Course and The Jubilee, the latter rated by some golfers as the toughest test of all. The Eden course was inaugurated in 1914, with easier options the Strathtyrum Course and the family friendly nine-hole Balgove.
