Visit St Andrews - home of golf, scotland
Visit St. Andrews is a matchless blend of past and present. As a town it has no equal in Scotland. Its ecclesiastical connections began at least as early as 747; the burgh came into being about 1144; the University, the first in Scotland, began in 1411. Golf was a recognized game there in 1552.
For more than a hundred years St Andrews has been famed as a holiday resort, not only on account of its golf, but also for its history, scenery and its equable and invigorating climate. It is almost unnecessary to say that the Royal & Ancient Golf Club is the premier golf club in the world. All the courses are an immense attraction to vacationers, and it is the ambition of every golfer to play on the world famous "Old Course".
There are many putting greens in different parts of the town, and abundant facilities for tennis, lawn bowling, swimming and boating. Indeed it is to be doubted whether there is in Britain a stretch of beach to equal the magnificent two-mile stretch at the West Sands. Almost equally appealing are the East Sands and Kinkell Braes, a stretch of rocky foreshore much enjoyed by young and old alike.
