Snow blankets the home of golf at St. Andrews

The sight of a snow-blanketed Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland is always one to behold.

Perhaps it’s no surprise but the Old Course has been closed for much of the week due to the weather.

The course’s Twitter account on Wednesday posted a message that all St. Andrews links courses will be closed until Saturday.

For most of this week, the course was still taking tee times but the phone lines will now re-open on Saturday, assuming the weather turns around.

Conditions at the time of the message were minus-eight Celsius wind chill, which translates to 17 degrees Fahrenheit.

That’s just not golf weather, but, the pictures are pretty amazing to look at.
