St.Andrews. Just the mention of the name fills you with a mix of excitement and apprehension of treading the hallowed turf. The New course for me was a wonderful example of how golf was played. Definition supplied by nature and the finishing touches added by man. It is a while since I played and I must admit to not having the best of days. For me there were not enough memorable holes but just the experience of being out on the links land of St.Andrews is a privilege. If this were not the so called home of golf, I do not believe it would rank so highly, but that said, what are we without tradition and history. Worth a visit, but not one of my favourite links courses of the British Isles.
