Scotland: The Home of Golf

Many believe that Scotland is the home of golf and the oldest golf course in the world is the St Andrews Links. Established in the 15th century, St Andrews is considered one of the finest courses in the world. There are six public courses within the system, with the Old Course being the most traditional and widely known of the six.

The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews is one of the oldest clubs in the world and provides the rules of golf everywhere except in the U.S.A. and Mexico where the U.S.G.A provides the rules of the game. First established in 1754 as local club that played the course and in 1897, it codified the rules of golf that are still followed today.

The R and A Golf Club is the organizer of many of the great championships in Europe, such as The British Open or to some The Open, the major amateur and senior events and the St. Andrews Trophy that is contested by England and Ireland and the whole of Europe.

Being a public course, St. Andrews can be played by anyone who would like to test her charms. The green fees are reasonable for such a famous play to play a wonderful round of golf. So grab yourself a set of clubs, a ream of balls, and a few friends and book early because the tee times are sure to fill up quickly in one of Scotland's most prized possessions.
