The Best View in Golf St. Andrews
The Best View in Golf St. Andrews-
14A The Links sits in the heart of one of the most enviable and iconic locations in the world of golf, overlooking the 1st Tee and 18th Green of the Old Course with views to the famous West Sand beach beyond. From the bay window in the living room, you can watch the world go by on the 18th green with the Royal & Ancient Golf Club sitting majestically in the background.
The Old Course is a regular host to the Open Championship which will be held there in July 2021. There are now six further golf courses run by the St Andrews Links Trust, including the Castle Course opened in 2009. There are many other golf courses in the area including Crail, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.
St Andrews is also well known for its university which is one of the oldest in Britain, founded in 1410. The town offers quaint shops, world class restaurants and a variety of festivals and events throughout the year. Beyond St Andrews is the East Neuk of Fife, with a spectacular coastline which boasts fishing villages built around picturesque harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches. The Fife Coastal Trail winds its way through this area of outstanding beauty.
Access by rail, road and air is good. Leuchars railway station (4 miles) is on the main Aberdeen to London line and provides a fast link to Edinburgh and its rich history and culture. Edinburgh Airport, with its increasingly wide range of domestic and international flights, is less than 50 miles away.
St Andrews is renowned worldwide as “The Home of Golf” with 11 courses in the immediate area and more than 60 within an hour’s drive. In Scotland, golf is a public sport enjoyed by everyone. You have the 9-hole Balcomie course for beginners literally a stone’s throw from the Old Course. The 7 golf courses within St. Andrews are owned by the St. Andrews Links Trust for the enjoyment of the public. On Sunday, the Old Course is closed for play and becomes the largest public park in Europe. Kids playing and dogs walking on the same turf that holds The Open! Other championship courses nearby are Kingsbarns and Carnoustie.

My son, son-in-law, and friend had the great pleasure of staying in this wonderful flat in a top-notch location for a men's golf trip. The owner was great as were the managers who lived nearby. We couldn't have had a better trip and this was the perfect place to stay!”
It really is the "Best View in Golf"
First I would like to start by saying that dealing with Richie (the owner) and Gillian (the property manager) was an absolute pleasure. To say that they were accommodating would be an understatement. The home is beautiful and the view was hands down the best I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary and it was nothing short of magical. The location is perfect not only for access to the city of St. Andrews, but also for traveling the Scottish countryside. My wife and I do a considerable amount of traveling abroad and we use 3rd home or Elite Alliance every time. I can honestly say that it was the most pleasant, stress free and outstanding experience we have ever had. Many thanks to Richie and Gillian and we will definitely be on the lookout for more available dates at this wonderful home.”
