Every golfer dreams of playing the old course and we got the opportunity to. Stepping up to the first tee, you could feel the history before you. What an experience. Start planning now for the most historic 18 holes on earth.

Did a brief walking tour of the Old Course and enjoyed walking up 18 and getting photo on the bridge. You can imagine and feel what Jack, Tiger and others feel walking up. Chilling!

We took a tour of several of the Old Course holes, led by a perfectly type-cast Scots gent with just the right amount of Scottish burr. Fun to see all the places shown on television, especially walking across the Swilcan Bridge. Also fun to hear...More

Flying solo, my Old Course experience was slightly more complicated. Arrived in town having played Royal Dornoch, Royal Aberdeen and Carnoustie the prior four days. I knew this was a more daunting challenge sans a tee time. For you solos, here's the drill. Get up...More
