Golf at St Andrews Scotland

Thursday, July 03, 2008

This evening I am presenting some pictures of St Andrews.

St Andrews is, in effect, the home of golf. we went to the Old Course Hotel and Golf Resort, which is a five star luxury resort including hotel, championship parkland golf course and extensive spa facility.

The citizens of St Andrews have been playing golf for a very long time, even before 1457 when the Scottish Parliament tried to ban the game. No one in the town took the ban seriously and by 1553 they had an inalienable right to play golf on the Links.

The Old Course hosted the Open during the millennium year and did so again in 2005. You can also walk on the famous Swilken Bridge, which has been crossed by a lot of professional golfers from all over the world.
