The Old Course at St Andrews is widely considered the oldest golf course in the world and commonly referred to as The Home of Golf. The public course is located in Fife, Scotland, around an hour north of the capital, Edinburgh. Fife is home to over 20 courses, primarily links-style, but with some heathland courses. Golf was first played in the early 15th century at St Andrews. Today, St Andrews is a golfers paradise and beautifully combines the history of the sport with modern facilities.
