The Old Course Experience

Date: May 2nd – 7th, 2018 [Alternative Dates Available]
Location: Old Course – St. Andrews, Scottland

The Old Course at St Andrews is considered by many to be the “home of golf” because the sport was first played on the Links at St Andrews in the early 1400s. The Old Course was pivotal to the development of how the game is still played today. One of the unique features of the Old Course are the large double greens. Seven greens are shared by two holes each, with hole numbers adding up to 18 (2nd paired with 16th, 3rd with 15th, all the way up to 8th and 10th). Everyone who plays the 18th hole walks over this 700 year old bridge, and many iconic pictures of the farewells of the most iconic golfers in history have been taken on this bridge. In 2005 the Old Course was ranked as the greatest golf course outside the United States.
