Golf

Castle Stuart Golf Links

Castle Stuart Golf Links may be a relatively new golf course but it has already forged an illustrious history and secured its place among the  world's top golf courses. In 2009, Golf Magazine named it top new international course and simultaneously placed it at number 56 in the world list. In 20011, this beautifully situated course, with commanding views over the Moray Firth to the hills and mountains beyond, shot to wider prominence  when it hosted the first ever European Tour event in the Scottish Highlands.

Royal Dornoch Golf Club

Royal Dornoch Golf Club stands as one of the great outposts of world golf and one of the finest of all golf courses. Remoteness is part of its charm and the only reason that it remains out of the mainstream of major championship golf.  It has something of a cult following, particularly in the United States.

Carnoustie Golf Links

Carnoustie is a big seaside natural links and widely considereded to be one of the most difficult golf courses in the world. Carnoustie consists of three traditional Links courses that play host to visitors from both home and around the world. Carnoustie's Championship course is among one of the select few to host The Open Championship, the oldest of the four major championships in professional golf.

New Course, St Andrews

In the late 1800's the Old Course was becoming too popular so the new course was created. Situated adjacent to the Old Course at St Andrews, the New Course is often referred to as the locals favourite because it is tighter and more defined than the Old Course. It is less quirky than the Old Course and perhaps prettier too, with swathes of dense gorse providing brilliant seasonal colour.

Kingsbarns Golf Links

While its golf origins date back to 1793, the multi-award-winning Kingsbarns Golf Links only opened in the summer of 2000. It immediately established itself as one of the world's must-play links courses – debuting at 46th on Golf Magazine's Top 100 Worldwide list. Since 2001, Kingsbarns has co-hosted the annual European Tour's elite Dunhill Links Championship along with the Old Course and Carnoustie.

The Old Course, St Andrews – subject to ballot

The oldest and most iconic golf course in the world. The Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognised across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status it remains a public golf course, open to all.  It is a classic seaside links, although the sea is seldom in view other than at the first and last holes.  The fairways are wide and the double greens immense but the bunkering is among the severest to be found on a golf course anywhere the game is played.

Ballot

Golf Explorer requests a tee-time two days before you wish to play and the Old Course notify us of the result that afternoon . If successful, the green fee of GB£155 is paid directly to the starter on the day. We will then re-arrange your other tee-times accordingly.

If you are in St Andrews for a few days, you have a very good chance of gaining a tee time using the ballot system. However, if you happen to be unsuccessful there is always the opportunity to line up at the 1st tee and the starter will fit you in if and when spaces become available.
