St Andrews, Scotland
The Mecca of Golf. This town of 17,000 on the east coast of Scotland is famous as “home of golf,” and The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, founded in 1754, has hosted The Open Championship more than any other club. Nearby, the 600-yearold St Andrews Links operates seven different courses. The area features stunning beaches, gentle rolling hills, and notoriously biting Scottish weather, though braving the elements is part of the St Andrews experience.
