St. Andrews town is a wonderful place to visit, whether you are coming to play a round at the Home of Golf, one of the several other courses to play or watch the pros at the ‘Old Course’- the oldest golf course in the world. All clubs welcome visiting players throughout the year, allowing them to experience for themselves the unique magic and tradition of playing at St. Andrews. 

For those interested in Scottish history, the ruin of St. Andrews cathedral was once Scotland’s largest and most impressive church. St. Andrews castle, a seaside ruin, is located a mere stroll away.
