    reaching back to the Bronze Age and to the time of Roman legionaries. A
    town once known as the ecclesiastical heart of Scotland’s Roman Church,
    ruled by Bishops and visited for centuries by Kings and Queens is now
    celebrated for golf.

    which is an important resource for golf historians and displays a huge

    was played in St. Andrews earlier than the 1400s. Join us in the 'Auld
    Toon' of St. Andrews  for a very special week of golf accompanied by
