A Sunday Stroll At St. Andrews
By kickntrue on 11/22/10
I learned something I didn't know about St. Andrews today. On Sundays the course is closed to "let the course rest" and it turns into a public park for the townspeople to enjoy. On Sundays many can be found strolling the course, enjoying a picnic and generally having a good time. In fact- there are only 4 occasions when Sunday play is allowed:
1) The final day of the Dunhill Links Championship, an annual event on the European Tour.

2) The final day of The Open Championship and 3) Ricoh Women's British Open when it is held at the Old Course; this happens roughly once every five years for the men; the women's championship began its turn on the rotation in 2007.

4) The final day of two top amateur events, the St Andrews Links Trophy and the St Rule Trophy.
It's such a quirky fact- I'm a little surprised I wasn't aware of it. Is it one of those things I've somehow never picked up and its well known to all of you? How great would it be to just go have a picnic in the fairway at St. Andrews?!

Bored mornings in short weeks can be enriching! Yah for Wikipedia!
