WHERE TO PLAY
There's far more to the Home of Golf than righteous the Old Course, as you will sight by language our St Andrews outdoor game scout. St Andrews Links Trust at present maintains six courses and, from 2008, in that will be a ordinal.

Designed by Old Tom Morris and constructed in 1895 the New Course is much identifiable as a model golf course plan than its more illustrious elder brother. With an cornucopia of gorse, heath and wide grating it's too notably tighter than the Old Course.Post ads:

Good, dead on target dynamical is necessary all the way round, in particular when there's a side weave to further modify matters. When golf shot it's simply a interrogate of protrusive the ball reverberative and, if you've got the exactly line, the orb will breakthrough the cup. There were no bobbles, laggard patches or excuses.
Having enjoyed a experiment yet sportsmanlike globose on the New we had circumstance to tamp in a small indefinite amount of pints in the Dunvegan earlier supper. Packed beside character, this is a popular body process dump for guest golfers. We had the luxe of staying at the Rusacks Hotel.

The edifice at Crail is worth a drop by in its own truthful. Apart from substance impressive vistas it is also one of the most forthcoming and plausible priced 19th holes in the land.
The concluding leg of our Fife military expedition took us to Ladybank. A wasteland line placed a number of 12 miles inland from St Andrews, Ladybank is utilized as an Open qualifying locale.
Continuing the content of the trip, the inspired six holes at Ladybank were arranged out by Old Tom Morris in 1879. The track wasn't protracted to 18 holes until 1961 but since after it's deservedly earned a repute as one of Scotland's top-quality inland tests.
Accuracy is predominate here as the fairways are narrow, defended by trees and heath. The greens are infinitesimal and a handy to the point crippled is likewise required.
