The Fife region

St Andrews has some of the most beautiful villages in Scotland adjacent to it - Crail, Anstruther, Pittenween, St Monans, Elie & Earlsferry. All have unique and beautiful harbours with outstanding views across the Firth of Forth not to mention a wealth of special restaurants and other attractions.

The Fife coastal path is a must for nature lovers and walkers alike.

Edinburgh is 90 minutes drive, Perth is 45 minutes away and Dundee is just 30 minutes away.

St Andrews

There are about 30 golf courses within 15 miles of Golf Place. The restaurants in St Andrews are numerous and of an excellent quality, as is the local shopping. There are music and art festivals held locally during the year.

Today's St Andrews is famous throughout the world as the home of golf. As originally played it had origins in a continental game a little like croquet. It was clearly well established here by 1457, for in that year King James II banned golf because it diverted too much time away from the much more useful pastime of archery practice. The ban seems to have been largely ignored.

St Andrews holds a special place in Scotland's history. It takes its name from the Apostle whose relics, legend tells us, were brought to this place in antiquity by St Rule. Scotland later adopted St Andrew as her patron saint and took his saltire cross for her flag. Before the Reformation, the town was the centre of religious life in medieval Scotland, with the bishops wielding great influence over both church and state. St Andrews is also famous as a place of learning. The university, founded in 1410-11, is the third oldest in Britain.

For many visitors, though, it's a game that draws them here, for St Andrews is the home of golf, the sport having been played here for some 600 years. The Old Course is arguably the most famous golf course in the world, and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club is still the ruling body for the rules of golf. Fittingly, the Old Course hosted the Open during the millennium year and did so again in 2005 and 2010. The next staging of the Open in St Andrews is set for 2015, be sure to book your accommodation early.

There are 7 fabulous golf courses within the town and many Championship Links courses in neighbouring villages.

ST Andrews is a town meant for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore – on foot – and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find.

There are some ancient historic buildings to explore, museums as well as the stunning beaches with all they have to offer.
