When considering your itinerary, please tell us other courses you would like to play. You may wish to choose the St. Andrews area only, in which case we would recommend the Castle Course, Kingsbarns and Crail. Consider playing other Open venues, for example, Carnoustie, Muirfield, Troon and Turnberry.

We would strongly recommend any itinerary should consider the Highlands of Scotland with courses as good as any – Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart, The Nairn, Tain and Brora along with two classic “Hidden Gems” – Fortrose & Rosemarkie and although not a links course, Boat of Garten, regarded by many as Scotland’s “Hidden Gem”.

Whatever you choose we can also include sightseeing and VIP whisky tours to give a true Scottish Experience.


Schedule your Visit:

Due to annual commitments, the Old Course in August is an extremely busy month. Similarly, September is heavily committed to competitions and as a result very few advanced bookings are accepted.


The Daily Ballot:

The daily ballot is a lottery style ballot. A minimum of two golfers must enter their names, their home clubs and handicaps 2 days before they wish to play. The ballot draw takes place every day of the week with the exception of Friday as there is no play on the Old Course on Sundays.

If your preference is to try the ballot system, we are more than happy to coordinate this on your behalf.

Please visit our website for the 2020 availability out soon.


*Please note the handicap allowances are Maximum 24 for males and 36 for females.
