    This is a rare opportunity for fathers, grandfathers, mothers and
    grandmothers  to play the famous St. Andrews links together with their
    children or grandchildren, boys and girls, and learn the history of the Royal
    & Ancient Game of golf as it grew to dominate a town with a history
    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.

    Along with playing  the great links, participants will visit St. Andrews
    historical sites including the ruins of the 12 century Cathedral where the
    great champions of golf, Auld Tom Morris and his son Tom Jr., winner of
    five Open Championships, lie in the graveyard among the great Bishops.
    Participants will visit the nearby British Golf Museum, founded in 1990,
    which is an important resource for golf historians and displays a huge
    collection of documents and implements related golf history and the
    foundation of St. Andrews as the birthplace of golf.  Historians claim golf
    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
    Coach Paterson, Yale's distinguished Golf Coach Emeritus who will help
    bring your game into shape on the Royal and Ancient links.
