The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews is one of the oldest golf clubs in the world. It is located in the town of St Andrews, in the county of Fife in Scotland, and is known as "The cradle of golf". Until a few years ago, it was also considered one of the governing authorities of this sport, but in In 2004 this role was taken over by the recently created The R&A.

The organization was created in 1754 as the St. Andrews Golfers' Society, a local golf club that played on the St Andrews course, and gradually grew in importance. In 1834 King William IV became a patron and the club was renamed by its current name.

In 1897 the Society established the basic rules of golf as they are known today, and in the following 30 years it went on to control the organization of other tournaments in other courses.
