St. Andrews

For dyed-in-the-wool players, this medieval seaside town in Scotland’s Kingdom of Fife holds a special place in the heart of every true pilgrim. Birthplace of the game, St. Andrews is where a target sport originated by shepherds (who inverted their crooks to knock stones into rabbit holes) has been played for well over 500 years. A charming university town, the royal burgh of St. Andrews cradles the Old Course, a bleak, primitive, out-and-back links that lists Evolution as its designer. Navigating this quirky, rumpled muni with its massive double greens and cavernous sandy pits completes the education of a golfer.
