Each week we will highlight one of the famed courses from aboutGolf® available for you to experience at Divots Indoor Golf. This week we highlight The Old Course at St. Andrews:
Location: St Andrews, Scotland
Year Opened: 1552 (approx.)
Course Record: 64
Architect: John Hamilton, Tom Morris
Follow in the footsteps of legends. As the home of golf, St. Andrews is the oldest and most iconic golf course in the world. The Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognized across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status it remains a public golf course, open to all. The Open Campionship has been hosted at St. Andrews 29 times, more than any other course. St. Andrews was also the first course to host the Open Championship on an 18-hole course, instead of three rounds of 12 holes, there were two rounds of 18.
In addition to the latest version, Divots also offers the 2011 Archive Edition. The archive edition allows you to play the course as it was in 2011, before many changes were made to keep pace with advances in golf equipment and athleticism. Notable features include more forgiving greens and bunkers compared to the present 2016 edition of The Old Course. Enjoy your trip back in time!
