‘Once in a lifetime opportunity. Old course has so much nostalgia and incredible with all the spectators cheering you on along 1 and 18 but Castle Course was by far our favorite course overall. Beautiful view of the city and the bay.’

Play golf at St Andrews
To play the Old Course, you must have a suitable handicap, and you need to book a tee time in advance. Check this page for full details of handicap requirements, and how to apply for a tee time or enter the ballot, which is drawn 48 hours before the date of play. However, if you don’t manage to secure a slot, there are plenty of other amazing golf courses to enjoy on the St Andrews Links.
With seven spectacular courses at St Andrews, there’s something for all levels of golfer. Choose your course here and book a tee time before you travel. You should also check busy dates and course closures prior to booking.
