The Old Course of St Andrews,Fife, Scotland.
Wednesday, June 24, 2009
Today, I am posting information on the Old Course at St. Andrews, home of golf. It is the oldest golf course in the world. The Old Course is a public course established on common land in St Andrews, Fife.
We really do not exactly know when golf was the first played over the grounds that now constitute the Old Course; but there is evidence which shows it dates from around 16th century.
The Old Course has the widest fairway in world golf. The 1st and 18th fairways are more than 100 yards wide but this has presented a challenge to some top golfers.
Another feature, is that the Old Course can be played in two directions, in the clockwise and anti-clockwise.
