The Home of Golf truly lives up to the hype. I was fortunate enough to experience these things first hand by attending the R&A Tournament Administrators and Referees School (TARS) with our Vice-President, Roland Deveau. We had the chance to represent Golf Canada and to see the mecca of golf in-person.
