2013 Summer (Baltic and Britain – Scotland – July 15 – Day 22 – Part 2)

The drive from Culross to St. Andrew’s took about an hour and a half.  It was a lovely sunny day as well which just made the day better.St. Andrew’s is synonymous with golf.  For many it is THE top bucket list course to play.  Golf was invented on the eastern coast of Scotland in the county of Fife in the late 15th century.  Players would hit a pebble around a natural course of sand dunes, rabbit runs and tracks using a stick or primitive club.

We don’t golf.  John will play once in awhile, but I gave it up for my health.  I generally threw the club in frustration further than I ever hit the ball, so I decided I don’t need to pay to raise my blood pressure doing something I don’t enjoy. The first tee had a road running through it so there is a Course Marshall to halt play when a car needs to go through. Thankfully there is much more to St. Andrew’s than just golfing.  There is a fine university, a castle, and the ruins of a great cathedral.  St. Andrew’s is also a summer playground with a long sandy beach.
