The Home of Golf

St Andrews is the Home of Golf. It’s known because the great game was first played here in the early 15th century. So often did the locals play that James II of Scotland banned the game in 1457. Approximately 45 years later, James IV grew enchanted by the game, lifted the ban, and golf has come to define the area ever since. Six centuries of golf history await you here; a claim no other place can make.
