St Andrews Golf Course Tours

Laying claim to the world’s oldest golf course and boasting a history of the game that dates back to the 15th century, the coastal town of St Andrews has long been renowned as the ‘home of golf’ and it’s still Scotland’s premium destination for international golfers. The St Andrews Links – the local lingo for ‘golf courses’ – include 7 public courses, sited in dramatic settings along the coastal cliffs and preserved by the St Andrews Links Trust.

The most famous destination for golfers has to be the aptly named Old Course, the oldest and arguably most famous golf course in the world, which has hosted an incredible 28 Opens and boasts iconic features like the Swilcan Bridge and the Hell Bunker. It’s possible to play a round if you book in advance, but most visitors opt for a guided walking tour, following in the footsteps of golfing legends like Tiger Woods and Bobby Jones, and celebrity enthusiasts like Michael Douglas and Samuel L. Jackson.

There’s also the equally prestigious New Course, which actually dates back to 1895; the notoriously challenging Jubilee course; the Eden and the beginner-friendly 9-hole Balgove. Finally, the most recent additions include the Strathtyrum and the Castle Course, which opened up back in 2008. 

Practical Info
