Old Course Ballot

St Andrews Old Course Ballot Tee Time

Nearly half of Old Course tee times each year are allocated to the Ballot to give people who have been unable to book a chance of playing. It is drawn 48 hours in advance of play and golfers should provide their names, home club and handicaps two days before the day they wish to play. To enter there must be a minimum of two and a maximum of four players, all golfers' names, golf club and handicap are required (maximum of 24 for men and 36 for ladies). SGH Golf Scottish staff will enter you each day you are in St Andrews. 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 increased. This Is Not a Guaranteed Tee Time.

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 5:00 pm for play 48 hours later. Thursdays and Saturdays provide clients the best chance of success due to the amount of available ballot times on these days.
