Renowned as the home of golf, the St Andrews now boasts 5 golf courses in addition to the famous “Old Course”. There are a further 8 Championship courses in the North Fife area.

St Andrews is the base for the R&A, the organiser of The Open Championship, golf’s oldest major.  The R&A takes its name from The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, which had responsibility for the game up until 2004, though the two are now distinct organisations.

To find out more about playing St Andrews’ golf courses, take a look at the St Andrews Links website which has course details and information on bookings.
