Rather interesting St Andrews facts
Did you know that St Andrews can lay claim to be the "home" of Golf ? Between 1897 and 1952 the Royal and Ancient Golf Club there was the rule-setting authority for the game worldwide; since 1952 it (and its offshoot The R&A) has shared that duty with the USGA.
Did you know that Mary Queen of Scots was a member of the local golf club and can probably be regarded as the world’s first female golfer? With all the tact for which she was renowned she played at St Andrews shortly after her husband Darnley was murdered.
