Scotland for Golf are unrivalled in their access to Guaranteed tee times on the Old Course, St Andrews. We are one of a select number of operators that are allocated Guaranteed Old Course tee times each year. Our tee times are available as part of a minimum 3 nights package which includes accommodation, golf and transport. All our tee times are sold on a first come first serve basis. Please note all Guaranteed tee times on the Old Course form a two-course policy with one of the other St Andrews Links courses.
The Daily Ballot is a lottery based system for golfers who have not secured a Guaranteed Old Course tee time. The St Andrews Old Course Ballot is drawn two days ahead of play except for Friday as there is no play on the Old Course on Sundays. For example, if you wish to enter the ballot for a tee time on Friday, you would apply on the Wednesday before 14.00 hrs.
To enter the ballot there must be at least two players and all Names, Home Clubs and Handicaps will be required. The ballot results are available online from 16.30hrs. (Maximum handicap of 24 for men and 36 for ladies).
Our packages that include the Old Course Ballot; our PGA Pro's will take care of the ballot system for you. Once the results have been published, the PGA Pro will call you with the results of the ballot. Although we strive to ensure our clients are successful in the ballot, we guarantee alternative golf at the St Andrews Links courses should you be unsuccessful with your application.
