St. Andrews Trip - Spring 2020
So a little background. Few friends of mine who grew up together have all moved out of our home cities. Some have kept in touch more than others, but we've always had a good bond with each other. We were recently together for one of my friends bachelor parties and it was centered around golfing. Me and a few of the guys were like "this is amazing. We've moved away, don't see each other nearly enough, but we need to keep this spirit alive and do more golf trips together." And so the seed was planted ...
Fast forward about 8 months and we started emailing each other and got four of us to commit to a trip to St. Andrews for a week in late April, 2020. We're putting our names in for the Old Course, for sure, and plan to hit many of the other St. Andrews courses. Courses currently on the itinerary:
Old Course, Kingsbarns, Carnoustie, and 3-4 of the other St. Andrews courses.
Few questions for the group.
1. Aside from the Old Course, what are your favorites? Why?
2. Are the 3 day passes worth it? Any other tips for golf you'd recommend?
3. What are some of your favorite tourist attractions that you saw and why?
We'll be there Sunday-Sunday and I've read that still isn't enough time to get everything in. For me, personally, this is the trip of a lifetime that I had originally envisioned taking much later in my life, but it just so happened that we're making it happen now. I'd love to get as much of the history and amazing "things" into this trip as possible, aside from just the golf.
Any and all do/don't opinions will be welcomed. Fire away ...
