Sneak peak at the Old Course in St. Andrews in the snow - and ten reasons why it's still the best in the world
To some, seeing the Old Course in St. Andrews covered in a blanket of snow could feel like something out of the surreal.
To others, it would be a worst nightmare if you actually had a tee time on this particular February day.
But thanks to Andy Brown and the Home of Golf TV, you can get a sneak peak of what St. Andrews looks like under a few inches of snow. Click here for the video.
“I’ve never seen it snowing like this,” said Andy, standing on a nearly covered Swilcan Bridge.
And for those of you who actually want to see what St. Andrews looks like on a clear day, you can check out his first video.
I’m headed to St. Andrews at the end of the month (after spending a week in East Lothian first), and I’ll have my fingers crossed for decent weather. Then again, no links trip is complete without at least one or two rounds in some seriously challenging conditions.
When I played the Old Course a few falls ago, we got a little bit of everything over the course of four hours: rain, wind, sun, calm - but thankfully no snow. Click here for my review (one of several, actually).
But rain or shine, there is always something magical about St. Andrews. In fact, I just scribbled up ten reasons why St. Andrews remains the world’s best golf course. Click here for the column.

Start in Ayrshire (Prestwick), then off to Aberdeen, then St. Andrews twice (2 different sets of friends), then Highlands, then finish up in East Lothian... Can't wait... 106 days, 12 hours, 11 minutes... not that anyone is counting...
