96 hours in St Andrews (Home of Golf)
How to maximize your time in Golf’s Mecca... "I could take out of my life everything except my experiences at St. Andrews, and I would still have a rich full life." - Bobby Jones.
St Andrew's Castle ruins
When you get back into the town you might consider tasting that most British of culinary dishes; fish and chips. Cromars on Union Street arguably offers the best in the area, and you may wish to wash it all down at the iconic Dunvegan Hotel. It has become a favourite watering hole for golfers over a period of decades and a place where you’ll find a healthy dose of engaging banter.
48 to 72 Hours….. The Jubilee and Eden Courses
Standing on that first tee before the widely-photographed R&A Clubhouse, with the widest fairway in golf facing you, is both surreal and thrilling. After navigating that anxiety, you will play a course that is both intriguingly strategic and highly natural, and possesses an array of iconic landmarks (Strath and Hell Bunker for a start) and brilliantly influential holes. It is a work of art.
Playing the legendary Road Hole is an exhilarating event, and anyone who manages to overcome its unique obstacles should have all their evening drinks bought for them. The round is then capped off by crossing the Swilcan Bridge (with the obligatory photographs) and experiencing the greatest of walks up to the 18th green.
