What the club says: St Andrews The Home Of Golf is a golfing Mecca for every golfer and realises the ultimate dream for golfers worldwide. From the iconic Swilcan Bridge on the Old Course to Tom Morris's masterful architecture on the New Course, St Andrews Links has developed over 600 years. The three championship courses; the Old Course, New Course and Jubilee Course run parallel to each other along the famous West Sands of St Andrews. Nestled on the opposite side of the Links are the Eden, Strathtyrum courses and the only nine hole course, the Balgove. A five minute drive from the town is the seventh course, the award winning Castle Course which offers dramatic views over St Andrews from its spectacular cliff top location.

Windy day in st andrews

Very windy, but a lovely challenging little course. Wind is the only defence on this track.

It's the New course - Stunning

Took the opportunity of a gift to play the New Course. A wonderful day and experience. The course was, as expected, fantastic. Greens were lightening and superb (pity my putting wasn't)

Jubilee St andrews

A course I've played and caddied on for the last 18 years.
Always a challenge and always fun to play. Greens are usually spot on as you would expect at
the Home of golf. Not everyone's cup of tea but i love it. Often regarded as the toughest course
on the links.
