Experiencing what our professional golfers get to enjoy is simply mind-blowing. The course is not that difficult but the wind will determine your play and the difficulty of the course. Take your time and plan your game. Driver not always the best option. Constant spectator galleries around the 1st Tee and 18th hole to send you off with huge applause on your drive and will welcome you back on your last put for par. Simply fantastic !

Travelled from Australia to St. Andrews to see the course. Purchased a few momentos from the Pro Shop. Was extremely disappointed to find that the St. Andrews badged golf cap I purchased was made overseas. There must be a huge shipping charge as the price was not commensurate with where it was manufactured.

There wasn't really much to do at the Links course if you're just visiting and not playing a round. The course itself is beautiful to walk around, as is the neighboring beach. At least now I can say that I've been there.

If you are thinking of doing St. Andrews for the old course, you won't regret it. The others are fine, but the experience of being there is all you would think it would be.

Also played Carnoustie, which was the most difficult course I've ever played.
