IT’S ST. AN­DREWS TIME

Golf Digest Middle East - - Life -

▶ Want to visit Scot­land and play the famed Old Course next year? There’s a brief win­dow this year—Aug. 22 to Sept. 5—when book­ing tee times is easy and rel­a­tively in­ex­pen­sive. Go to stan­drews.com dur­ing this pe­riod and click “play,” then “how to book,” then “Old Course”. Un­less you’re vis­it­ing in the win­ter, you’ll need to buy a round at the Old Course plus one on an­other of the seven cour­ses at St. An­drews. The cost for sum­mer 2019 is £330 (about $440) for both rounds. In the spring and fall “shoul­der” sea­sons, it’s £230 (or $307).

I PLAY GOLF FOR WHAT IT BRINGS ME BUT ALSO TO BRING JOY AND HAP­PI­NESS TO PEO­PLE WHO WATCH IT. IT’S A SPORT, BUT IT’S ALSO EN­TER­TAIN­MENT. IF YOU DON’T GIVE PLEA­SURE TO PEO­PLE, THEN YOU’RE MISS­ING THE POINT. — JEAN VAN DE VELDE
