There is one big upside on limited international travel to Scotland at the moment.

Had a great day, sunny, very light wind and course in great condition. Didn't play my best but still enjoyed it.

Highlights/Lowlights Took 3 to get out Shell bunker on 7, it is pretty big I'm sure there are bones of golfers who didn't make it out buried in it somewhere. And par'd the last to the adulation of the watching crowd and his dog.

I have stood in the same spot as pictured. It was the best golfing experience of my life.

There are many great courses but the Old Course you can say that you're in the footsteps off the greats especially with the iconic photos on the Swilcan Bridge

Two of the best days of my life when I got to play the Old Course. Hoping the UK/Scotland open up soon. We had a trip planned for June (I think you got our tee times!), now we're tentatively looking at September, but it might most likely wind up being 2022. Ever hopeful...

In my opinion, being in St Andrews and playing the Old Course has been the single best golf-related experience of my life.  Even if you don't play the Old Course, the town is magical, and the other courses are great.  I've been to Scotland for golf three times, Ireland three times, a fair number of places throughout the US, and the two week-long visits I've made to St Andrews are the best.

Couldn't agree more -- the town, the golf, the people - it was special.

Might as well dust off this golden oldie...

I'd never read your review before and it is pretty accurate. Post COVID a few things have changed when I was up The Dunvegan had closed down and is now up for lease but a lot of the lot places you mentioned are still up and going. When we were there the St Andrews Brewing Co. had tents erected outside the brewery for COVID safe drinking which was the only place we could get in. The Jiggers Inn had setup 10 - 12 outside tables so you could watch and hear the players playing the 17th.

Just one bit of information on merchandise you have ones that are officially logoed by St Andrews Links Trust and others all around the town including the Old Course Hotel you will get another logo. The town coat of arms is a common one you will get from the town merchandisers
