Your memories from the Home of Golf

Our digital guestbook

Great golf weekend! We'll be back!

We had the privilege to visit St Andrews Links, the Home of Golf on September 18, 2017.

St Andrews and the Old Course will always have a special place in my heart for many reasons. I've been going there with my wife at the end of October for years to finish the golf season and to take some cool golf photos. A few years back I broke 80 and it happened on the Old Course and that's something I'll never forget. Shot 77 with the help of great local caddie, Scottie, who has later become our friend. I can assure you, that pint after the round tasted pretty good. Another great memory is The Open week, 2015 where I was on the working media side - talking about 8 great days and that's when I took this picture. This year we're coming back again with clubs and camera and looking forward to playing and for the stay at the Old Course Hotel. Just counting the days...

Ever since I was young I have dreamed of going to St Andrews. My father played in the British Amateur many years ago and he always talked about what a special place it was. Finally my husband and I planned our trip to Ireland and Scotland. We checked into the Rufflets Manor House, ate 'Cri Pie' downtown and then walked to the golf course. I called my dad in Arizona and we shared a very emotional call together. The following day we took the walking tour with Jimmy our guide and it was perfect. We so enjoyed his stories and enthusiasm. My husband, Don and I, ate lunch at the Links clubhouse, purchased as much as we could carry from the pro shops and talked about when we could come back again and play golf. From walking on the golf course, standing on the bridge and looking out to the water and knowing where you are is a feeling that can't be replaced. It was a great trip! Kelly Riordan Zale
