The Open at St. Andrews

Saint Andrews, Scotland, United Kingdom
9 Kudos
This summer, I had the chance to take my dad to the open championship at St. Andrew's in Scotland. Using miles and points, I was able to surprise him with an upgrade to business class for the transatlantic flight. We used the local bus service to save money on our travel in and around Fife. I redeemed my miles for the tickets after the spend we put on our card from the trip. It was a heated championship with the first Monday finish in over 20 years. We also played four rounds of golf ourselves, if golf is what you'd call it. We had a blast!
