Immerse Yourself

It's not just about how many rounds you can play while you're here - there's so much more for golf enthusiasts to enjoy. 

For keen historians, a visit to the R&A World Golf Museum will provide hours of fascinating insight into the ancient game of golf, and a wander through the grounds of St Andrews Cathedral reveals the final resting places of some true golfing pioneers.

600 years of golfing heritage might best be appreciated when you have an expert on hand, and an Old Course guided walk is a must for any visiting history buff.

Have you ever tried hickory golf? Now's your chance! Just 10 miles from St Andrews, Kingarrock hickory golf course at Hill of Tarvit Mansion is the only remaining hickory course in the UK. The quirky 9 holes was established in 1924 (the same year that Rufflets House was completed), and only came back to use in 2008 after a 70 year hiatus.
