PerryGolf’s Keith Baird recently concluded another successful trip – St Andrews and The 2013 Open with The Houstonian Golf & Country Club. Read more about the trip via Keith’s thoughts below and enjoy the slideshow with pictures from this PerryGolf trip to St Andrews last month.
“Mr. Mack, the head professional at Houstonian Golf & Country Club, brought a group of 45 members to Scotland in July 2013. Their PerryGolf trip was based mostly at the fantastic five star Fairmont St Andrews and included golf on some of the world’s best golf courses including the Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie Golf Links, and Kingsbarns Golf Links, plus attendance at the final round of the The Open Championship, won by Phil Mickelson. The trip was a huge success with a return journey in 2015 already being discussed between PerryGolf and The Houstonian. Attached are just a selection of photos from their time in Scotland.”

Although opened to a flurry of some controversy, The Castle Course at St Andrews will begin its fourth year of play in 2012 with some well considered modifications. Several greens including 15’s enormous false front have been “tempered” for less slope plus the club plans to keep the surfaces softer than in the past. Secondly, there are fewer blind “hummocks” – those large, hay covered, well- struck-drive-eating mounds to avoid.
The Old Course in St. Andrews has been named as number one at the top of Celebrated Living magazine’s Platinum list of the Top 20 International Golf Courses. In second place is St. Andrews Links Trust’s newest course, The Castle Course. There are welcome accolades in the run up to the 150th Open Championship being held on the Old Course this year.
