Booking a Tee Time at St. Andrews

2019 BOOKING TEE TIMES AT ST. ANDREWS OLD COURSE

This brief outline will help explain the different methods that can be used to obtain a tee time on the St. Andrews Old Course.

 Option #1 – Guaranteed Old Course Tee Times

 


Authorised Provider White Logo.jpg

SGH Golf is one of the officially appointed authorized provider of The St. Andrews Links Trust - Old Course tee times. Our allocation of Guaranteed Old Course tee times is available to SGH Golf clients as part of a golf package which will include golf, transportation and hotel accommodation. These tee times are sold on first come-first serve basis – if you wish to reserve a Guaranteed Tee time, please notify us as soon as possible.

 

Option #2 - Advanced Application:

 This is the most straightforward and cost effective way of obtaining a guaranteed tee time on the Old Course. The Links Trust of St. Andrews will start accepting applications for 2019 tee times August 2018 - September 2018. SGH Golf will walk you through every step of the process. Accepted applicants will be notified directly by the Links Trust if they were successful within 8 weeks. Please note that there is a two-course requirement using this method. Tee times for September are not available via this methodFor 2019 they will continue the lottery to determine those successful in applying for tee times in the Advance Reservations Process.  It will no longer be first come first serve.

 

Option #3 – The Ballot (Lottery):

 Approximately 50% of Old Course starting times are not allocated to advance starting times but are allocated via the ballot (source – St. Andrews Links Trust).   Many visitors take advantage of this method of playing the Old Course. With a properly designed golf tour staying three to four days in St Andrews your odds of receiving a starting time via the ballot system are good. Not a guaranteed tee time. (Please see The Old Course Tee Sheet below)

 Our Scotland office handles all the details of entering your names for the ballot.  The daily ballot or lottery is drawn 48 hours in advance at 2:00 pm for play 48 hours later. On Thursday afternoon, there is over 30 ballot tee times available and on Saturday there is over 60 ballot tee times available, all the tee times on both Thursday afternoon and all day Saturday are reserved for the ballot.

If you are successful through the ballot our Scottish office will take care of contacting and rearranging the golf course you were scheduled to play to another available day. You will be entered for the ballot each day you are in St. Andrews.  Please note: the ballot does not offer an absolute guarantee for play on the Old Course.

 

Option #4 – Walking On/Standing By:

 There are normally between 12 and 30 spaces on the Old Course each day that the starter will fill in with walk on players. Any two or three ball will be filled in to make it a four ball, any golfer wanting to walk on will need to report to the starter on the day they wish to play and are filled in according to when they arrived at the starters box.  Success depends on the time of year and how early you arrive to get in line, there is no additional cost using this method but this is not a guaranteed tee time. (Please see The Old Course Tee Sheet below)

 *****************************************

SGH clients who obtain a St Andrews Old Course tee time through the advanced application process will have to pay the green fees directly to St Andrews for the two courses booked. The Old Course and New or Jubilee is £250, the Old Course and Castle Course is £295, these green fees are included in our proposed itinerary price in order to reflect a true and accurate cost of the entire trip. Once all your golf and hotel reservations have been confirmed we will send you a confirmed itinerary with the new tour price reflecting the payment of the St Andrews green fees.

Requirements to play the Old Course:  The maximum handicap for play on the Old Course is 24 for men and 36 for ladies.  You must have an official handicap card (USGA or equivalent) to play the Old Course.

The Old Course is closed every Sunday and will be closed at different times TBA for the 2018 season.
