Courses that should be on EVERY golfer's Bucket List

Old Course St Andrews

St Andrews (Old)

Got to start with the oldest golf course in the world, don’t you? More than 45,000 rounds are played on the Old Course every single year. It has a spiritual, almost mythical standing in the game. Playing here isn’t just an experience, it’s an essential experience for anybody who calls themselves a golfer. It’s also a major misconception that rounds here are hard to come by. There are actually a number of ways to secure your tee time, assuming you have a handicap of no worse than 24 for a man and 36 for a woman. This page explains more about your options.
