Golf

Ailsa Course, Turnberry

The Turnberry Ailsa course (ranked #17 in the world) is worthy of its world ranking. Located on Scotland's Ayrshire coast, it is one of the most scenic places in the world to play golf. The Ailsa is a legend of the world game and the scene of some of the most memorable moments in Open golf history.  Turnberry is links golf at its most challenging and exciting.

Royal Troon Golf Club

Consistently ranked as one of the World's best links courses, Royal Troon was created by Willie Fernie, one of the great early British golfers in 1878. Frequent host to the British Open, perhaps the most apt description of the course is provided by the club motto — "Tam Arte Quam Marte", which means "as much by skill as by strength".

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.

North Berwick Golf Club

North Berwick Golf Club is one of Scotland's oldest golf clubs, dating back to 1832.  It is one the most influential and unique links golf courses in Scotland. The routing is a classic nine-out, nine-in, and the stretch of holes from No. 12 thru 16 are among the greatest in golf.

Gullane Golf Club

Gullane Golf Club in East Lothian, Scotland offers championship quality links golf courses with dramatic views across the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh and Fife. Its three golf courses do not have names but simply numbers which reflect their age.  Hole No. 7 on Gullane number 1 course, has been voted in the top 5 of the Most Picturesque Golf Spots in the World.

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.
