St. Andrews is a living museum where interaction with its history is highly encouraged. The Links Trust encourages visitors to stand on the 1st tee of the Old Course where Old Tom Morris, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Ernie Els, Rory McIlroy, and Tiger Woods, Rickey Dowler, and Jordan Spieth all have teed it up.

The Old Course, unmatched in tradition, is closed on Sunday so the community may enjoy a walk on the course and visitors may pose and snap an unlimited number of photos.
