It has been 2 weeks since the Open Championship finished at the home of golf so, I thought I would share my ROGs review of the St. Andrews Links: Old (yr 1552), New (yr 1895), and Jubilee (yr 1887). Architects: Old Tom Morris (Old/New), Alister Mackenzie (Old) and John Angus (Jubilee). The courses and town are genuine and there is this almost magic feeling experiencing all of the history. Bonus: Home of the golf is king of publics with Sunday’s closure for public/park. Do not forget that that most of the St. Andrews Links are sandwiched together and the other tracks are fantastic links. Cheers! (My photos are from May 2013 and Sept 2015)
Architects: Old– Old Tom Morris, Alister Mackenzie +others, New– Old Tom Morris, and Jubilee– John Angus.
