Third year Golf Management degree students traveled on a pilgrimage to the cradle of golf over Reading Week with a trip to St. Andrews, Scotland. With their hotel rooms perched above the 17th hole of the world famous Old Course, students enjoyed what was described many times over as “the trip of a lifetime”. Of the countless highlights, students took in a tour of the Old Course with local golf historian Jim Bowie, a visit to the British Golf Museum, dinner at the St. Andrews Golf Club (est. 1843), and numerous rounds of golf, some complete with caddies, on links where the game has been played for over 600 years.
This Scotland trip is part of an annual group of international learning experiences degree students enjoy as part of their program. Other trips include visits to Orlando, Florida with itineraries such as visiting the Golf Channel, Nicklaus Design, and The Honda Classic PGA Tour event, as well as conducting a week-long class entitled Game Improvement II.
Numerous photo albums of this trip are available on our Facebook page.
