Traveling to Scotland, the “Home of Golf” and enjoying the great links golf courses this country has to offer is an absolute must on anyone’s bucket list.  St. Andrews Old Course, Carnoustie, Muirfield, Royal Troon, Prestwick and Gullan.  These great names just roll off the tongue like a smooth Scotch whiskey!  Read on and see how you can join me to experience all of this and more!

The Old Course at St. Andrews.

The thrill of playing the Old Course at St. Andrews cannot be described in words!  It is a spiritual experience that reaches down into the depths of your soul, and finds that place of contentment you’ve always wanted!  I have played St. Andrews Old Course several times, but none so special as playing with my eldest son in 2014!

First tee.

To stand on the first tee in front of the Clubhouse and headquarters to the R&A is amazing. The most famous tee shot in golf is not the opening tee shot, which is fairly benign, but the tee shot, on 17 over the former railroad sheds, (rebuilt to replicate the original in the mid 80’s) is intimidating and exciting all at the same moment!

Certainly an intimidating tee shot! Hitting over the corner of the Old Course Hotel.

17th Tee.

Definitely an intimidating tee shot.  Nobody want to put one into the hotel! Fortunately for me, I hit my best drive of the day here and went on to make my par!

If you would like to experience hitting this tee shot over the corner of the railway sheds and the Old Course Hotel, come and join me on a trip of a lifetime in 2017 to Scotland.  Go here for more details!
