Local Area


It is almost unnecessary to say that the Royal & Ancient Golf Club is the home of world golf. St Andrews warmly welcomes visiting golfers from all over the world.

The various courses, a truly global attraction, have not just shaped the town, but seep into its very heart. Built on public land, the 17th and 18th Holes of the Old Course run up to local shops and are flanked by local roads. Any keen golfer longs to play the world famous “Old Course”. Green fees are very affordable – but beware – play is mainly controlled by a ballot which can be massively oversubscribed. A trip to St Andrews is a quite unique golfing experience – almost a pilgrimage. The town has almost been completely given over to golf and therefore offers the golfer every possible amenity. Even outstanding quality golf clubs are available for hire locally.

It may be hard for non-golfers to fully grasp the significance of St Andrews to the game of golf, but the well-presented British Golf Museum, situated behind the Royal and Ancient clubhouse brings a potentially ‘stuffy’ subject for non-golfers to life with the use of audio-visual and hands on presentations. Highly recommended.

Golf in Fife and the surrounding area extends well beyond St Andrews. Other charming and historic courses include Crail, Elie, Lundin and Leven Links, Ladybank Kingsbarns and The Castle course. We are not far from Carnoustie and the famous Open Qualifying courses at Downfield, Panmure and Monifieth as well.
