The Old Course at St Andrews is considered one of the oldest golf courses in the world. It is a public course over common land and is held in trust by the St Andrews Links Trust under an act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.
One of the unique features of the Old Course are the 7 large double greens.
Also everyone who plays the 18th hole walks over this 700-year-old Swilcan bridge.
On most Sundays, the course turns into a park for all the townspeople who come out to stroll, picnic and otherwise enjoy the ground.
