Following in the footsteps of legends and returning to the origins of the game - it is a special place.

Having been a respected but largely overlooked course, improvements in the nearby roads and infrastructure since the 1970s have seen a dramatic increase in visitors to the small village and its extraordinary golf club. It was the awakening of a genuine masterpiece.

Celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2016, the layout has developed and been enhanced over time, but there is a tangible sense of history and natural weight to the course. The front-nine becomes increasingly more interesting as it progresses, with its superb bunkering and eye-catching plateaued greens opening up by the fifth.

The expansive view from the seventh tee is absolutely breathtaking, as is the course from start to finish. It is beautiful but highly punishing. On a good day, there is nowhere better to be.

Days 8, 9 & 10

Bucket list trip?
Home to lively, historic Edinburgh and old, characterful St Andrews, Scotland should be top of your list when planning you next golf vacation….
