I was fortunate enough to attend the University of St Andrews and live in the town for four years. I played hundreds of rounds across all of the St Andrews Links courses, including a summer in the town caddying. With every year I learned more, and I have compiled in-depth articles on the town below. I also recommend having a look at Liam Frean’s posts. He is a University of St Andrews student writing about life at the Home of Golf.
As you will have seen in the suggested Scottish golf trip itineraries page, St Andrews is an excellent place from which to base a golf trip to Scotland. The interactive Google Map at the bottom of this page highlights my favorite pubs and restaurants in the town. Have a look!
