St Andrews Golf Course
The Old Course at St. Andrews is the most famous golf course in the world, now in its sixth century as a golf venue and the one which every golfer aspires to playing at least once in a golfing lifetime. Nine holes out and nine holes back is the classic layout with shared fairways and vast double greens.

The St. Andrews courses, six in total, are administered by the St. Andrews Links Management Committee. This sandy peninsula has remained the property of St. Andrews’ citizens, with the golf courses being essentially municipal allowing anyone to play on them once you meet certain requirements

The Old Course does not favour any particular type of player as it demands a variety of shots and will test every part of your game. There are 150 bunkers waiting to catch the errant shot.

New Course

Over 100 years old the New Course was sculpted out of necessity as the demand in the 1880’s for Old Course tee times was exceeding supply even then. The New Course was born from the same strip of linksland leaving the golfer with a very similar golfing experience. There is one difference, the New Course is a much tougher links test. The greens are small with tight fairways and demand a high degree of accuracy.
