GUARANTEED OLD COURSE TEE TIMES
Our Old Course tee times are available as part of a five or seven night premium package. THE OLD COURSE at St Andrew’s is considered by many to be the “home of golf” because the sport was first played on the Links at St Andrews in the early 1400s. Golf was becoming increasingly popular in Scotland until 1457 when James II of Scotland banned golf because he felt that young men were playing too much golf instead of practising their archery. The ban was upheld until 1502 when King James IV removed the ban.
In 1754, 22 noblemen, professors, and landowners founded the Society of St Andrews Golfers. This society would eventually become the precursor to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews. The course evolved without the help of anyone architect for many years. However, the more significant people to its design were Daw Anderson in the 1850s and Old Tom Morris (1865–1903) who designed the 1st and 18th holes.
Since then the popularity of Golf has boomed and it remains every golfer’s dream to play this historic links.
