About the Golf Club

St Andrews Links is without doubt the most famous golf course in the world, this is the one course above all others which every golfer dreams of playing.

It is the 'Home of Golf', the game having been played in the Fife town for at least five centuries, and to play on the hallowed turf of the Old Course is indeed a treat to be savoured.

One of the unique features of the Old Course are the huge double greens. Seven greens are shared by two holes each. Only the 1st, 9th, 17th and 18th holes have their own greens.

Another unique feature is that the course can be played in either direction, clockwise or anti-clockwise. The general method of play today is anti-clockwise, although clockwise play has been permitted on one day each year in recent years, and since 2008 has been allowed on the Friday, Saturday and Monday of the first weekend in April.

Originally, the course was reversed every week in order to let the grass recover better. One other unusual thing about the Old Course is that it is closed on Sundays to let the course rest. On some Sundays, the course turns into a park for all the townspeople who come out to stroll, picnic and otherwise enjoy the grounds.
