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.

Out of this world!

Very lucky to play the Old course in benign conditions at the end of March late in the day.

Words will struggle to describe how special this place is and what it is like to actually play a course which is likely at the top of every golfers bucket list to play. As you would expect the experience & conditions were exceptional; from the greetings of the staff, the facilities, standing on the first tee and the conditions throughout. Whilst we played at the very end of the off peak season, with winter mats in play, this did not detract from the round, particularly if you missed the fairway by a few yards where mats are not actually needed. The whole course was first-class and we probably also lucked out, not only with the still conditions, but also the fact that the rough is cut back at this time of year making any shot missing the fairway not too perilous.

The course was a joy to play and offered a nice mix of fun, challenging and unique holes and we were aided in our round by the benefit of playing with a local who provided valuable insight in where to aim, what to avoid and the hazards you couldn't see - like the seven sisters on the 5th which make up over 100 bunkers which are best to be avoided! I've no doubt when the wind gets up this can be an extremely tough course but the course isn't there to destroy your game but there to let you know what a great game this is if you play the course as you find it and give it the respect it deserves.

With many shared greens and shared fairways to a degree, along with a few cross over points it never felt like you were too close to any other groups nor at risk from other golfers despite the course being full.

Too sum up, if you can, simply, just go and play it! The history, the town, the views, the Open, the course - this is the Home of Golf and simply a wonderful place to visit and a course simply out of this world that every golfer should experience at least once in their lifetime.

Fantastic Course

It’s a great course, one of the hardest amongst the 5 courses at the St Andrews links. Would strongly recommend playing here.

Everything you would expect from a first visit to Scotland and the birthplace of golf. Even the mandatory use of fairway mats did not take away from the experience. Used a caddie which made a big difference playing the course for the first time.
