Links with History

The Kingdom of Fife is of course home to St Andrews but it's also home to some of the oldest golf courses in the world. 'Links with History' is a special joint booking initiative developed by four of Scotland's leading, and most historic golf clubs. We call it 'Links with History' because these courses are among the very oldest in the world. Situated near St Andrews in Scotland's Historic Golf heartland, we offer championship class courses that date back to the early days of tournament golf.
