Old Course, St. Andrews

Follow in the footsteps of legends - the oldest and most iconic golf course in the world. The Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognized across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status, it remains a public golf course, open to all.

New Course, St. Andrews

The oldest 'new' course in the world, the second course at the Home of Golf, was built by the Keeper of the Green, Tom Morris in 1895, and it was imaginatively named to differentiate from its famous neighbour. Boasting undulating fairways and challenging greens, the New Course is a classic test of links golf.

Castle Course

The newest addition to St Andrews Links, The Castle Course opened in 2008 becoming the seventh course at the Home of Golf and part of the largest public golfing complex in Europe. Set on a rugged cliff-top with spectacular views over St Andrews, The Castle Course offers a memorable golfing experience.

Jubilee Course

The third championship course at the Home of Golf, the Jubilee, is considered by many to be the most challenging course on the famous Links. Built in 1897, it was originally intended for use by ladies and beginners; however, after seeing its prime golfing location between the New Course and the sea, the Jubilee was converted to a championship layout in 1988.

Carnoustie Golf Links is an iconic, world-leading golf destination in Scotland and home to 'Golf's Greatest Test'. Golf has been played at the Links since the 16th century, and it was Carnoustie natives who went on to establish the Professional Golfer's Associations of America and Australia. The Championship Course has hosted eight Open Championships, one Ladies' British Open, and two Seniors' Opens, making it one of the very few to have done so in the UK.


The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews has used Panmure as a qualifying course for the Open six times. Home to one of the oldest golf clubs in the world, the 6,511-yard Panmure layout takes its toll on challengers via tight fairways accented by an almost constant wind from the west. No matter which way the wind blows, though, simply finding the fairway stands players in good stead here—gorse, rough and Lodge Pine trees, planted right after World War II, stand guard on much of the course.

Balcomie Links

Centuries of golf have been played over these beautiful old links–long before the days of formal rules, mechanized mowers, and metal cups. Much of the course as it is enjoyed today was laid out in 1895 by the master himself, Old Tom Morris. Balcomie is one of Scotland's golfing gems–and a must-play course for members and visitors alike.
