“I fell in love with it the first day I played it. There’s just no other golf course that is even remotely close.”
At St Andrews for Golf we will help make your own memories and experience golf on the most sought after links in the world.
The Old Course is the undisputed Home of Golf, where golf was first played over 600 years ago. It remains a real test of golf for today’s champions. The fabled original links course is synonymous with The Open Championship which it has hosted more times than any other venue and will host for a 28th time in 2010. Despite its reputation and status, it is a public course and through St Andrews for Golf packages available for you to play.
*The Old Course option if bought through Gift Vouchers/Golf Schools/Experiences is achieved through the Ballot process unless stated Guaranteed. Ballot Tee Times cannot be guaranteed. The achieved Tee Time can be anything from 6.30am depending on time of year to 4-4.5 hours prior to sunset. The exact the tee time will be released 48 hours prior to play.

The New Course is often regarded as the oldest “new” course in the world. A classic links course with undulating fairways and delightfully challenging greens, it was set out in 1895 by Old Tom Morris.
Named the New to differentiate it from the original course at the Links which became the Old Course, the course remains one of the finest examples of Morris’ work to be found anywhere.
The construction of the New Course was paid for by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, which engaged B Hall Blyth, an Edinburgh civil engineer, to plan the New Course, and entrusted the layout to Morris and his right-hand man David Honeyman.
The result is a classic links course which is a first class golfing challenge. The course has the traditional out and back layout, with the 18th green just to the right of the first tee. It also has, in the great St Andrews tradition, shared fairways and even a double green at the 3rd and 15th holes.
If the New was situated next to any other course in the world than the Old its star would have shone with a far greater degree of brilliance.
