Recommendation: When golfing at resort owned golf courses, such as Turnberry, Gleneagles, or St Andrews Dukes (Old Course Hotel), we recommend staying at the hotel. Despite the extra expense of staying at a 5 star hotel, you will save substantially by paying resident green fees.

St. Andrews Old CourseST. ANDREWS OLD COURSE St. Andrews (Fife) It is the Home of Golf where golf was first played 600 years ago and yet it remains a real test of golf for today's champions. Despite its reputation and status, it is a public course and is one of six public courses on St Andrews Links. Traditionally to play a round on the Old Course, golfers enter a daily ballot for the highly coveted tee times. This course is confirmed by ballot the night before play. (exception: Saturday for Monday play). Single players and those who did not make the ballot can wait at the Starters Box in an attempt to join 2 / 3 balls. Get down there as early as possible. At its busiest golfers will start to gather as early as 4am. At quieter times of the year there are spaces late in the day for anyone showing up.

St. Andrews - the town where a certury old golf course is called "new". The links never belonged to a golf club, but were and are still public courses, administered today by St Andrews Links Trust. The Old Course (600 years old) was known simply as St Andrews Links until 1895 when the opening of the New Course meant that its predecessor became known as the Old Course. Until 1764 a round on the Old Course consisted of 22 holes with eleven holes out and eleven holes in with only the 11th and 22nd not played twice. In that year the first four holes were reduced to two, which meant that a round was reduced to eighteen holes. As the prestige of St Andrews grew this came to be recognized as the standard for courses the world over.

Jubilee Course Kingsbarns Dukes

ST. ANDREWS CASTLE COURSE 7200 yards par 72 The Castle Course is the first new tournament standard golf course to be built in St Andrews in close to 100 years. This cliff-top wonder is the result of a David McLay Kidd design, offering spectacular shots, including teeshots from some 80 feet above the St Andrews Bay. The newest member of the St. Andrews golf course family opened at the end of June 2008,

ST ANDREWS NEW COURSE New Course 6625 yards par 71 Opened in April 1895. The New Course at St. Andrews is truly not a new golf course at all, and has in fact been open for over 100 years. Opened in April 1895, the New Course was designed by Tom Morris and sits in the shadows of the Old Course at St. Andrews.

ST ANDREWS JUBILEE Jubilee Course 6742 yards par 72 (more than 100 years old) The Jubilee Course at St. Andrews was the third championship course built in the town. Opened for play in 1897 the course received its name in honor of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, which celebrated her 60 year reign as the British Monarch. The Jubilee Course began as a twelve hole course, but it was lengthened to an 18 hole layout eight years later in 1905.

ST ANDREWS KINGSBARNS Kingsbarns 7133 yards par 72 Kingsbarns Golf Course is the most recent addition to Fife's golf coast, and has quickly developed a reputation as one of the finest links courses in Scotland. Kingsbarns was chosen as a venue for the Dunhill Links Championship, joining with its more established neighbors, legendary Carnoustie and the Old Course at St. Andrews. Mens 28/Ladies 36

ST ANDREWS DUKES The Duke's 7512 yards par 71 The Duke's, owned and managed by the Old Course Hotel, is a lush, heathland course perched on the hillside just a few minutes from the hotel near Craigtoun Park. Noted in Golf World's Top 100 Courses in the UK, this championship 18-hole course has magnificent greens, beautiful fairways, a fleet of electric golf buggies and five tees on every hole, making it most appealing to golfers of all abilities.


WEST COAST:
Trump Turnberry: The Ailsa 6976 yards par 70 A golfing jewel of the West Coast, Turnberry is the Pebble Beach of the British Isles. Redesigned by Mackenzie Ross in the 1950s and ranked among the top 20 courses in the world it has been the host of three Opens in 1977, 1986, 1994 at which the winners were Watson, Norman and Price respectively. This course is an unforgettable experience with magnificent panoramic views over Turnberry Bay to the Isle of Arran and Ailsa Craig. It is a challenging course with a wealth of strong and stirring holes which are all beautifully maintained. (Closed until June 2016)

Trump Turnberry: Kintyre 6853 yards par 72 Now upgraded to full championship standard by Donald Steel, the course is now an even sterner challenge and the finest compliment to the Ailsa. Undulating greens, glorious fairways, magnificent ocean holes, and all with stunning views of Kintyre, Arran and the famous Turnberry Lighthouse. The 8th hole is widely regarded as the Kintryre’s signature hole, which involves a drive from an elevated tee towards the sea and an unforgettable blind second shot to the green set in a gully by the rocks.

Troon: Old Course 6641 yards par 71 south of GlasgowThe Old Course is one of the great links courses in Scotland and is a challenging test of golfing ability. With the wind to contend with, and deep rough interspersed with gorse and broom, accurate shot making is essential. Players should make their scores on the outward nine, as the prevailing north-westerly wind can make the back nine extremely difficult. The Old Course at Troon has hosted the Open Championship eight times Visitor tee-times only available on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Handicap certificate showing a handicap of 20 for men and 30 for leadies is required. Must be 16 years old or older to play the Old Course.

Troon: Portland Course 6289 yards par 71 Although a links course, the Portland is a little more sheltered than the Old Course and, of course, shorter. The holes meander through terrain filled with gorse and broom and there is a generous helping of par 3’s, five in all. This is tempered however, with four par 5’s, all of which are on the back nine.

Western Gailes 6639 yards par 71 A Championship links course, Western Gailes is recognised as one of the finest Links courses in Scotland. A trial of skill and strength, the course is something of an endurance test. Positioned between the railway lines and the sea, accurate tee shots are necessary to hit the narrow fairways. The course is frequently used for Open Championship Qualifying.

Prestwick 6544 yards par 71 Birth place of the British Open Championship, Prestwick hosted the first twelve Opens and 24 in all, the last in 1926. Designed by Old Tom Morris, the course with its narrow fairways, small and undulating greens follows the natural contours of the terrain and features some odd twists and turns and even some interesting blind shots.

Other:
Scotland Golf GLENEAGLES Three courses, the King's, Queen's and the PGA Centenary The King's Course, opened in 1919, is a masterpiece of design, which has tested the aristocracy of golf, both professional and amateur. James Braid's plan for the King's Course was to test even the best players' shot-making skills over the eighteen holes. When they play the King's the world's greatest golfers admire the cunning and craft with which he achieved that goal.

Queen's 5965 yards par 68 Threading through high ridges on the north and west sides of the estate, the Queen's offers lovely woodland settings, lochans and ditches as water hazards, as well as many moorland characteristics. The challenge of the first nine can be deceptive, with even some of the best players finding it a test to make par into a fresh southwesterly breeze.

PGA Centenary 6558 yards par 72 Designed by Jack Nicklaus this course is scheduled to host the Ryder Cup in 2014. A challenging test of golf for the best. From the back tees, the PGA Centenary Course measures 7,088 yards, the longest inland course in Scotland. However, the tees are graded at each hole in five stages, including a challenging 6,558 yards from the white markers down to 5,072 from the red. Fittingly, the PGA Centenary Course begins by playing southeast towards the famed glen of the eagles sweeping up the Ochil Hills to the summit of the pass below Ben Shee which joins it to Glendevon.
