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.

Can't beat it

Old Course is a great experience. New and Jubilee are a better test of golf. Great all round golfing experience though.

Balgove 9 holes

Nice simple course fine for a relaxing afternoon. Quite expensive at £15 but it's not usually very busy and you can get great food at the Eden clubhouse.

The Old Course

As a single golfer on a weekend in Scotland I was hoping to play this famous course - note as a single golfer you probably need to arrive the night before and camp out to guarantee yourself a tee time!
It's more an experience than a round of golf, starting on the first tee aiming towards the burn and finishing with the Road Hole and the 18th.
Golf wise, a great course that really tests your shot making ability and allows you to get creative to navigate the contours of the land. Putting needs to be on point as does the ability to read the pin sheet - 140 to the front may end up being 180 to the pin!
Just an amazing experience! Caddies and marshals keep 4-balls to about a 4 hour round which is fine. Play if if you can, the home stretch is incredible.

Difficult but excellent

Really great layout on the outskirts of St Andrews. A bit trickier than the courses in the town but a fantastic course with some really hard to read greens. A must play if you are in the area.

Castle Course St Andrews

Great views, great condition, nice friendly staff, great course lay out, great facilitys. The only thing that spoils this course is the rediculas over undulating greens, the tenth hole is quite an easy 4 putt. There are some greens you can hit a good shot into then the ball runs away from the hole.

The Best Golf Course in the World

This is an old municipal course, probably nobody has heard of it. Played it in perfect conditions the day before The Open, burnt out fairways, greens had been watered so were slower than the fairways! Now my 3rd time playing and I will be back.

The Home of Golf

I'm not sure I have the words to describe how amazing this place is. The weather was very typically Scottish but, for me, it just added to the experience. It's definitely one massive tick on my bucket list. The best golfing experience I've ever had.

I would highly recommend getting a caddy, I'm certain he saved me 10 shots and was invaluable as well as super friendly.

Great weekend venue

Jubilee Course

The Jubilee Course provides a decent examination of links golf skills with undulating greens, run off areas and tight fairway lies. This is a very playable course but make sure you bring your short game if you want to score well as the green complexes are very tricky.

The home stretch is very enjoyable as you play back in towards the Auld Grey Toun.

Castle Course

A very difficult but enjoyable course. All you can see as you drive through the dunes to the clubhouse are dunes, dunes and more dunes, with not a fairway or green in site, however all of the holes open out in the landing areas to give handicap players a fair but demanding test.

You’ll need your complimentary course planner to plot your way around here but don’t be put off, this is a superb championship course with great views over the sea and, from certain holes, St Andrews itself. Tremendous.

New Course

The gentlest test of the 5 courses I have played at St Andrews, but enjoyable nevertheless. The terrain is flatter than the other courses and therefore the greens and green complexes aren’t as tricky, which came as a relief to me after a 2 rounds on the Castle Course the day before.

The New Course is a great way to start off or round off a golf break on the links and the opening and closing holes provide great views of the Old Course Hotel. If playing on a Sunday, try to play early in the morning as, when we visited, there were sometimes 3 groups waiting on the opening holes whereas we sailed around from our 7.52am start.

Incredible experience

St Andrews get it right in every aspect. Not only are the courses in fantastic condition, off course everyone makes you feel so welcome it becomes a truly special experience. Played Jubilee (arguably the tightest and toughest course) and Old. The whole Old Course experience is incredible but they manage it so well. Pace of play is good, but you still have time to enjoy it and take in the history of what's happened before you. Highly recommended!
