View from the Balcony

The view from the balcony outside the office of the Secretary/Chief Executive is one of the most spectacular in St Andrews. It offers panoramic views of the 1st and 18th, the stunning West Sands beach and Eden Estuary, all the way across to the forest of Tentsmuir. To the left, running alongside the links is a row of historic buildings, whose history is inextricably linked with golf; from the corner of Pilmour Links and Golf Place where Allan Robertson lived, to Forgan House, once the largest club and ball-making factory in the world, to the small building which was formerly Tom Morris’ shop and is now The R&A’s Open retail outlet.
