To say the Old Course at St. Andrews Scotland is unique would truly be an understatement.
It is a very different type golf course, in a very different place of the world.
The town of St. Andrews is actually very small. St. Andrews University accounts for a little more than 25 per cent of its population of 30,000. The one element of St. Andrews( as well as Scotland itself) is that little as changed through time.
A walk through the town of St. Andrews is a must. As much a must as playing the golf course itself.
So, if you ever get a chance to experience St. Andrews, donít just play the golf courses (easy to do) and leave. Set some time aside to tour around.
The Old Course is where many British Opens have been played. The New Course, (which is not at all new), is a very good course, narrower fairways with much friendlier greens than the Old Course.
