We went to St Andrews a couple of years ago instead of the Military Tatoo. We got off of the tender boat & took a taxi to a rental car facility [ prearranged]. Drove to the town of St Andrews where we had booked a hotel within walking distance to the old course. Upon arrival we shopped at the old course gift shop, ate dinner at a local pub & eventually back to the hotel. The following morning we met the group tour for a walking tour of the old course . The guide gave so much information . She also made sure to get us on the course for pictures if we wanted. She judged when groups were playing a hole & then got us out on the course. I got a great picture of my husband standing on the bridge. When we were finished we had a leisurely drive back to the ship. Info is on the st andrews web site. Beautiful drive.
