Golf has been played at St Andrews Links since the 15th century, so it’s no surprise that it’s regarded as the home of the game. Located 50 kilometres from Edinburgh, a trip to the Links is an absolute must for any golf enthusiast—or it could be combined with a few nights’ accommodation to make it the perfect gift for your favourite duffer! Even non-golf enthusiasts will marvel at how gorgeously green the grounds are, the history of the place and the craftsmanship that went into building the structures and famous Swilken bridge. This 50-minute guided walking tour of the Old Course takes in the first, 17th and 18th holes, and also includes a Callaway golf ball and an Old Course scorecard as souvenirs.
