Located in Fife, right in the north of the UK, St Andrews can become quite cold during the winter months and windy since it is located on the coasts of the North Sea. Therefore, we recommend planning your golf trip in St Andrews during the spring and summer months to make the most of warmer weather and calmed winds. Yet, like anywhere in the UK, the weather can be unpredictable. So, pack appropriate clothing for all occasions and be prepared.
