Highly Recommended 2018

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.

Jubilee Course

Played the Jubilee in strong winds - real challenge as this (other than the Castle) is probably the tougher of the 7 St Andrews courses. Always a friendly welcome, can never fault how down to earth the staff are to make your experience special. Course was in great condition, tee'd off early and had the place to ourselves for about 16 holes, which for a Friday morning was amazing.

St Andrews Old Course bucket list

What more can you say but wow, wow, wow. Standing on the first tee where all the greats in golf have stood before, the history just oozes everywhere. That first tee shot and the feeling of fear as other golfers and general public watch you gets the blood pumping and all you hope for is to get a good connection and it goes down the fairway. Luckily I hit a good one and managed to start birdie, birdie something that will live with me for a long time to come!!

Never fails to blow you away!!

Another unreal experience at the Home of Golf! We had weather you can only dream of, the course was in excellent condition and the rough was above Open Championship level according to our caddie which made it even more challenging! Pity we visited in the time of COVID as the usual hospitality wasn?t on offer but that wasn?t their fault, and what was offer was excellent as always.

Loved the visit and hoping to get back soon!

Great course even in tough conditions

Surprisingly difficult "3rd" course at St Andrews Links. Understandably the rough has grown quite a lot during lockdown, punishing anything off line. Still a great layout with some really nice holes. Signature 15th hole doesn't quite work for me with a large gully before the green meaning only one approach style possible.

What can you say I still can?t believe I have played The Old Course which purely as a golf course isn?t actually out of this world but it is The Old Course which just makes it really special.

A different observation

I?ve been lucky enough to visits several times and more recently, played some of the local courses outside of St. Andrews links. All I can say is only then do you realise how good the hospitality you get in all the St Andrews clubhouses is. Nowhere comes close to the quality of food, price and service. The courses speak for themselves.

Wow

The Strathtrum Course. This is the cheapest 18 hole course at the home of golf.
This is a must play course and it is great value for money. A good challenge for all handicaps and I will play this layout again. But for me the Eden course is next on my list at St Andrews.

Great to have played the old course, it was in very good condition and all the staff (which there were lots of them) were very friendly and helpful. Through 7 & 11 it is a bit congested due to the layout. The bunkers are a great challenge and the first tee is nerve racking.
