Castle Course in St. Andrews - 17th tee


St. Andrews' Castle Course plays on cliffs overlooking the sea and the historic townscape below, making for one of golf's more unique stages. It comes complete with blind shots, cliff carries, severely sloped greens and stunning vistas (you can see St. Andrews Bay from every hole, and the city from most greens and/or tees). Given the preponderance of blind tee shots and visual illusions around the greens, first-time visitors are strongly encouraged to heed the advice of their caddie.
