Women at St. Andrews: A Museum Exhibition & A Major Championship




















For female golfers... and fans of the women's game... 2013 is looking to be a particularly excellent year for a trip to the "home of golf".

As you probably know, the 2013 Women's British Open will take place on the Old Course in St. Andrews from August 1st - 4th for only the second time in its history.

In addition, The British Golf Museum... just a pitching wedge away from the famous Old Course... will be presenting Ladies First: Pioneering Moments in Women's Golf, an exhibition that focuses on the history of women's golf.

Curated by a group of postgraduate students from the University of St. Andrews' Museum and Gallery Studies program, Ladies First, will feature historic artifacts, art and photography that promise to bring to life key events and characters from golf's past and the way it was played by women.

There are also numerous courses to play in and around the beautiful and historical town.  So, if you've been looking forward to making that trip to St. Andrews one of these years... this might be the perfect time to do it.

  1. We're going to London this summer and I'm trying work in an extra four days for a side trip to St. Andrews!!! I have to admit I didn't even know the British Women's Open was going to be there. I'd be the week before but I'm guessing it will be very busy. Would still love to go.

  2. YES women could play, BUT back then, could they VOTE ?

    GOLF is the great equalizer, with split tees and a handicapping system, and women can be as athletic as men, especially when young, so i really don't see the big deal

    we have the NOVA SE univ SHARKs here in DAVIE soFLA and these girls can play

    one favorite t-shirt read ..... "I PLAY GOLF LIKE A GIRL" which was worn by a young lady who can turn in a PAR round on the BLUE MONSTER at DORAL

  3. I'd hate to think of what my score might be be if I played in one of those outfits. Actually maybe it would be better. ;-)

  4. golf growl,

    using the movie HAPPY GILMORE(1) as our inspiration, my foursome once played in a charity event in suit jackets (we each had a different color jacket, a green, gold (actually yellow), red and blue)

    one thing i can tell you is that it makes it impossible to over-swing

    we then donated the jackets for the charity auction afterwards

    (1)from wikiquotes.............

    Chubbs: "You win the Open tomorrow, and you're automatically on the Pro Tour. Then who knows, maybe you'll win the Tour Championship. Get that gold jacket that I never got."

    Happy: "Gold jacket, green jacket, who gives a shit?"
