This is the day Sean has been waiting for the whole trip – St. Andrews, the birth place of golf. St. Andrews lived up to his expectations and more. We took the bus from Edinburgh, about a 90 minute ride. St. Andrews is a beautiful, medieval village. To golf on the Old Course you must put in your reservation in November for the following year. However, there are some ballot (lottery) openings that are drawn two days in advance. One can still get on the other courses. The course was full today. No carts and lots of golfers with caddies. We also went to the British Museum of Golf. Besides checking out the golf courses, club houses and golf shops we explored the city a bit. There are ruins from a castle and an abbey, a college and plenty of shops. This is one of our favorite small towns that we visited.

Apparently you are allowed to bring your dog golfing with you. We saw more then one dog on the course with their master.

One of the most famous golf artists was Thomas Hodge!
