Tiger Woods practising at St Andrews, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on St. Andrews Links, home of the famous Old Course where golf is alleged to have originated around 600 yeas ago.

The Old Course is one of six links courses. The others are: New Course,  Jubilee Course, Eden Course, Strathtyrum Course and Balgove Course.  The latter extends to nine holes and caters for families, children and beginners. Additionally, there is the Castle Course which is located on a cliff top site and benefits from stunning views.
