St Andrews course forced into name change

It would be a dream come true for any golf enthusiast to pull on their Galvin Green clothing and enjoy a round at St Andrews.

But sometimes appearances can be deceiving and some golf courses may not live up to their name.

That was certainly the case with the St Andrews golf course in Florida, which has been forced to change its name after the managers of the St Andrews' Old Course in Scotland threatened to sue over trademark infringements.

Last year the City of Dunedin and the course managers were shocked to receive a demand of $75,000 (£47,250) from St Andrews Link Trust with the threat of legal action.

A settlement was eventually reached which did not involve the exchange of any money or further legal action, but the US course agreed to change its name and has until April to transfer its website domain,, to the Scotland-based trust, The Courier reported.
