On a sunshine filled February day I took time out to film the very first episode of HomeofGolf.tv. It was fun to stroll around the 18th and 17th greens before deciding to check out the views over West Sands and the Old Course from The Seafood Restaurant. As luck would have it Ross Frame, the restaurant manager at The Seafood Restaurant, was kind enough to chat to me about their menu of the day. I always highly recommend a meal at this award winning restaurant. Afterwards I met Elizabeth Palompo, owner of Cameron House Guest House, who gave me a great insight into when to book accommodation for the 2010 Open Championship and also all year around. Plus I had a chat with American Robbie, a long time patron, about his twice yearly visits to the Home of Golf. Finally a quick trip to the Castle before wrapping up by the 1st hole on the Old Course. Please leave a comment and let me know what you thought of the first episode. Additionally what is your most memorable Open Championship moment? Cheers Andy P.S.

After two days of fantastic sunshine I thought we were all set for a mild patch, how wrong could I have been! I awoke to find a deep blanket of snow, my walk at Tentsmuir beach in near tee shirt conditions the day before was a distant memory. It then stuck me that I had never seen the Old Course under snow, only in pictures - so this was my chance to change that. Thus this afternoon Elle and I drove into St Andrews and shot this 2 minute video. It was fun to shoot and the constrast to the footage shot for Episode 1 is clear to see! The question of the day is as follows: “What are the worst conditions to have ever played golf in?” Please leave your answers below in the comments section. Take care and remember it’s nice to be nice. Cheers Andy The Question of the Day: What are the worst weather conditions you have ever played in?

This week I visited St Andrews Golf Company Ltd, the last remaining Scottish golf club manufacturer, over at their new premises 6 miles south west of St Andrews at Largoward. Hamish Steedman the managing director of this great golf company, was kind enough to show me around the show room and factory. It was fascinating for Elle and I to get a behind the scenes look at the last club maker in the world to to retain the traditional skills used to hand craft authentic period playable sets of hickory golf clubs. Not only that but this is home to 3 of Scotland’s most famous club making brands; George Nicoll, Tom Stewart, and of course St Andrews Golf Company itself. You can read a full account of the company’s history dating back to 1881 here. Join me in this video as we step back in time and appreciate the unique skills required to make clubs for some of the game’s greats names like Bobby Jones, Gene Sarazen and Henry Cotton. It was a real pleasure and education to witness the various steps required to make a fully playable hickory club. Hamish explained how through the generations, the same materials and working methods are used to make clubs like a long nose spoon, brassie, mashie and a niblick. A full description of the club making process from start to finish is detailed here. The company also offers a complete custom-fit service of ‘state of the art’ golf clubs. If I had had more time I would have used their advanced putter fitting system! Clubs are sold online and at their new shop on Golf Place in Andrews. You have the choice of the Heritage Collection featuring single clubs and sets of period hickory clubs and the Modern range incorporating the George Nicoll and St Andrews Golf Company brands. If you are ever in St Andrews I would definitely recommend a visit, you are bound to enjoy and appreciate over 125 years of golf heritage under one roof.

This week I visited the Dunvegan Hotel, which is located a 9-iron from the Old Course’s 18th green (depending on the wind!) on the corner of Golf Place and North Street in St Andrews. The Dunvegan Hotel, which was deemed the perfect 19th hole by Sam Torrence, is owned and operated by Sheena and Jack Willoughby. Jack, a 4th generation Texan, and his Scottish wife Sheena were kind enough to show me round the Golfers Corner Lounge Bar (although I was somewhat familiar with it, having sunk a few pints there on previous visits!) and chatted with me about how their hotel has come to be St Andrew’s premier drinking spot for players, caddies and golf fans! Popping in to the Dunvegan Hotel for a drink and something to eat is as much a part of the St Andrews experience as visiting the Old Course. You only have to look around the bar to see that visitors come back time and again for the warm welcome, the fine selections of beers, ales, and spirits, freshly prepared homemade meals and some post-golf banter! During this episode I had a chance to chat to some golfers in the bar who had made the journey from their home courses of NorthGate Country Club in Texas and Green Island Country Club in Georgia to St Andrews many times to enjoy the Dunvegan’s amazing hospitality and great Scottish links golf. Jack and Sheena are both avid golfers themselves who told me that despite having played the Old Course innumerous times, every time they stand on the first tee it’s still special to them. As well as its popular bar the Dunvegan also boasts a fantastic restaurant, the Claret Jug. They offer a variety of mouth watering dishes and specialize in quality char grilled steaks. Of course you can top off your meal with your choice of over 50 single malt whiskies covering all regions of Scotland! This family-run St Andrews hotel also offers comfortable overnight accommodation. It can comfortably sleep 16 golfers in its 2 double rooms, 3 twin bedrooms and the Auchterlonie Suite (situated immediately across the street from the Dunvegan) which consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 spacious bathrooms with power showers and jacuzzi baths, a large living room and a kitchen. I’ve stayed their myself during a golf holiday a few years before I moved to St Andrews and can highly recommend it. The accommodation is perfect, lots of room for golf clubs, hanging up wet waterproofs and the best news is that Jack and Sheena will fit in breakfast around your tee times! Check out my latest episode to witness the friendly atmosphere for yourself and see some of the Dunvegan’s past celebrity visitors. The walls of the bar are lined with a collection of photographs of Sheena and Jack taken with golfing legends who have frequented the bar for a post-golf tipple including Tiger Woods, Lorena Ochoa, Mark O’Meara, John Daly and celebrities ranging from George Bush Snr to Hugh Grant. Take a look at this video especially shot by The Golf Channel during the Open, they call the Dunvegan Hotel “one of the best hangouts in the world of golf!”. No wonder Lorena Ochoa choose The Dunvegan for her 2007 Women’s British Open winner’s part here. One of the Dunvegan’s most regular visitors was Arnold Palmer’s former caddie Tip Anderson who used to shuffle into the bar on a regular basis for a half-pint of Eighty Shillings beer with a rum and water on the side. In the bar of the Dunvegan you can still see for yourself a brass plaque above a velour banquette, which reads: “This chair reserved for Tip and his friends.” Tip was the most celebrated of the St Andrews caddies, his knowledge of every hump and hollow on the Old Course almost helped Arnold Palmer to win the Centenary Open in 1960, coming second to Kel Nagle by one stroke. The following two years saw Palmer and Tip win successive Open championships, at Royal Birkdale and Royal Troon. Tip then went onto caddie for Tony Lema in his 1964 Open victory at St Andrews. During this episode Sheena also showed me the Dunvegan’s gallery of fantastic portraits of every Open Champion dating back to 1860 which were created by David Joy. David is a multi-talented fourth generation born and bred St Andrean. As well as being an amazing artist and illustrator his talents range from golf historian, guest speaker, playwright, author and active community member in St Andrews. David is committed to the preservation of St Andrews and its traditions and is involved in most of the town’s activities, be it through golf, theatre, the University, or the safeguarding of the Royal and Ancient City of St Andrews. He is probably best known as “The man who plays Tom Morris” - a one-man show premiered during the 1990 Open, which has since been televised and adapted as a commercial video and distributed world-wide under the name of Keeper of the Greens. David brings to life celebrated Open winner Old Tom Morris (1861-62-64 & 67) by dressing up as Old Tom (scroll down for video) and providing modern-day golfers with an insight into the history of the great game and how it used to be. So remember next time you are visiting St Andrews I definitely recommend a visit to St Andrews’ most famous watering hole, the Dunvegan Hotel - I might even see you there for a post-golf pint!
