How do I book a tee time at St Andrews?
Here’s your complete guide to booking a tee time at the birthplace of golf. Start the process by applying directly to the St. Andrews Links Trust. Contact them by phone (011-44-1334-466718) or e-mail ([email protected]) during a two- to three-week window that begins each year in late August and ends in mid-September.
How far in advance are tee times given on the Old Course?
Roughly half the Old Course tee times allotted are via the Daily Ballot, a lottery system that’s drawn 48 hours in advance, for play two days hence. Until 2015, the ballot provided only 24 hours advance notice.
Can anyone play the Old Course at St Andrews?
It also happens to be a truly public course, owned by the local townspeople through a centuries old Act of Parliament. While this means that anyone can play The Old Course at St. Andrews, securing a tee time at The Home of Golf is not as simple as phoning the pro shop. Here’s what every golfer needs to know when planning a golf trip to St. Andrews.
