St Andrews Old Course is a very special links, dating back to the 12th century, the old course is one of the oldest golf courses in the world. Picture the moment. Standing on the first tee of the Old Course, 600 years of history and innovation plays out in front of you. You feel excited, tense and sentimental all at once and now, it’s your turn.
The greens are the most extraordinary and interesting putting surfaces in the world. There is little definition between where the fairway, fringe and green stops or starts and the fairways are probably faster and certainly more undulating than the average golf club’s greens. The courses itself may not be an instant hit, it’s a golf course you have to get to know and love, and is unlikely that the old course will feel familiar when you play it for the first time but every true golfer should play this course at least once.
