A visit in February was made to St Andrews, Scotland by PerryGolf staff – Daryl Youden, Yasmin Falconer, Gary Sheppard, Michael Paterson. In this article they provide insight to various accommodation and dining options in StAndrews.
In addition to many of the world’s most renowned links golf courses and finest accommodations, St Andrews is also blessed with many great ‘19th holes’ to visit for a pint or dram after golf. Unfortunately, choosing this perfect pub to enjoy with your friends while you reminisce over your round can be a complete shot in the dark if it’s your first time in the Home of Golf. That’s why we’ve created for you a list of our favourite pubs in the Auld Grey Toon.
The famous and iconic 17th hole of the Old Course will be lengthened ahead of The Open Championship at St Andrews in 2010. The ‘Road Hole’ will increase by some 35 yards to 490 yards. For those familiar with the set up, the new Championship tee will be constructed on the driving range of St Andrews Links Trust, the other side of the ash road that runs parallel with the 16th hole. An increased premium will be placed on an accurate (and long) drive over the sheds. It is thought the added length will re-establish the difficulty of the approach to the green and the danger posed by the road hole bunker and the road itself. Interestingly the length of the hole has not been altered since 1900. Lets just hope the wind is not in their face!!
