Coming back home scottish golf fails

  1. 1. Coming back home Scottish Golf Fails
  2. 2. July 2005 sees the return in the world’s greatest golf tournament to the spiritual home for the Scottish Colonial. While using 27th staging from the British Open going on about the Old Course in 2005, St Andrews has held case more frequently than any place else which has reinforced its strong reputation as the “Home of Golf”.
  3. 3. This year’s event comes at a time frame the place that the Scottish Golf Marketplace is enjoying something of the renaissance, with more people these days determining to go to the country for golfing holidays and test on their own many of the world’s most famous courses.
  4. 4. That old Course at St.Andrews, where in 2010 the world’s greatest golfing talent will compete for the famous Claret Jug Trophies, originally contains 22 holes - eleven out and eleven back. However, in 1764 the area society of St.Andrews Golfers decided how the format of the course had to change because the most of the holes were simply too short. As a result the entire quantity of holes was cut to 18 - which can be now synonymous with golf courses worldwide.
  5. 5. However, regardless of the now settled structure from the course many inside town felt the links will be better served like a commercial opportunity as opposed to a playground for golfers. This together with the local councils financial difficulties triggered the links offered in 1799 to some rabbit breeding company!
  6. 6. This became a really controversial move which essentially led to precisely what is known locally since the “Rabbit Wars” to find the best portion of two decades. Eventually, in 1821 a gentleman called James Cheape bought the links for the sole using local golfers - which essentially resulted in the truly great golfing legacy which still exists today.
  7. 7. During many countries golf can be considered a game title to the financial elite, it's been a sports activity that's available to all numbers of society in Scotland. The popularity in the game grew even larger plus 1860 Prestwick Golf Club held the very first Open Championship and won by Willie Park.
  8. 8. St Andrews first held outdoors in 1873 when Tom Kidd claimed the title and over century later the course has seen some of the most exciting opens including the famous Sergio garcia victory in 2000 where he set a low-scoring record of 19 under par while becoming the youngest player to own achieved a career “grand slam” of golf’s four major tournaments.
  9. 9. Besides the famous win by Sergio garcia the winner of the 2005 Open will probably be following within the footsteps of other legends for example Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus, Bobby Locke and James Braid who've all won over the famous links. To put it differently winning outside on the home of golf is the absolute pinnacle of achievement that any golfer can hope or even dream to realize.
  10. 10. It seems like challenging to suppose a country while using rich good Golf Trophies that Scotland enjoys could lose its way in regards to promoting itself as being a great golfing destination. However, during the 90’s this was certainly true. Countries including Portugal, Spain and even Ireland worked tirelessly to trade themselves facing outward world because ideal destination to golfing holiday. Scotland was perhaps responsible for arrogance believing that it could possibly survive on its historical reputation alone.
  11. 11. However, the last four years has seen an obvious shift in the marketplace with large amounts of (particularly English, American and Japanese) golfers yet again visiting Scottish shores. Helped from the publicity surrounding this years Open at St.Andrews a lot more golfers are trying to find golfing breaks and also have a many companies competing for their business.
  12. 12. In St.Andrews itself the somewhat new St.Andrews Bay Golf Resort [http://www.standrewsbay.com] provides Upscale luxury that rivals the very best of golfing hotels anywhere in the world. Sitting amidst the rugged coastal landscape of East Fife the hotel was in ten or twenty yards of all the St.Andrews courses.
