St Andrews (Old)

St Andrews/Scotland

"I fell in love with it the first day I played it. There's just no other golf course that is even remotely close." Jack Nicklaus

"Without a doubt I like it the best of all the Open venues. It's my favourite course in the world." Tiger Woods

The Old Course is the Home of Golf where golf was first played 600 years ago. It remains a real test of golf for today's champions. The fabled original links course is synonymous with The Open Championship which it has hosted more times than any other venue and will host for a 28th time in 2010. Despite its reputation and status, it is a public course and is one of seven public courses at St Andrews Links.

The Walker Cup was held here in 1926
