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.

Today I
Played the fantastic Jubilee course at St Andrews links.
As usual the course was in tip top condition. As it’s winter there were fairway mats in use for shots in the fairway.
I’m well used to this as I live in St Andrews and have been using mats for years.
The weather was nice if not a wee bit cold at times. ( it’s February and it’s Scotland so we’re used to it )
You never get a bad lie on a mat !!
The greens were in terrific condition, especially given the amount of rain over the last couple of months.
The Jubilee is one of my favourite courses on the links and I love it.
Highly recommended.

Magical

Played an unexpected round at the Home of Golf on the Old Course. This time of year, you have to play of mats, which is a shame but still a great experience. Playing in the low season makes it more affordable but still a hefty fee of £150.

Proper Links

Anyone concerned that if you don't play the Old you don't get the St Andrews experience should play the Eden. From check in to finish it just feels special and the course runs immediately alongside the old for some of its length so you are effectively on the same ground.

Strathtyrum St.Andrews

The Strathtyrum complex has very good parking and visitors Clubhouse facilities. The staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The course is typical links, and in good condition. A very enjoyable round on Fifes east coast!

The Eden runs alongside the Old Course so you can enjoy a links course without the high cost! We really enjoyed playing here as it was our first links experience and we found it in top condition.

Stunning links/clifftop course

The Castle course is not a traditional St. Andrews links but boy is it exhilarating. Yes there are a few holes which feel the same but the semi-blind tee shots, rollercoaster greens and North Sea backdrop make this a thrill a minute golf course. You need to use your course guide well to pick lines and yardages off the tee. You barely get a flat stance even on the greens but everything about the Castle course is challenging, exciting and throught provoking. Standout holes include all the par 5 holes, the par 3 17th over the cliffs and par 4 6th hole. If you go to St Andrews, make sure you pay the Castle course a visit.

A long walk

The views from the course are stunning but it's a long walk and taking a buggy would be a good idea. The greens are still very tricky and in some cases it is difficult to get the ball near the hole even when the green. Too many Swales and slopes in my view.

Not quite the Old course but it will have to do

Started very misty and played 1st 3 holes next to 13th, 14th and 15th of the olf course. Plenty more gorse on Eden and no double greens. Plenty of interesting pot bunkers and back to faster greens greens. Not quite as quick as 1st 2 days but faster enough. 3wd has deserted me today. My most consistant club over the last 4 days.....the Driver!
