The Old Course


It is every golfers dream to play on the Old Course, however, there are restrictions. We do have some “Guaranteed Tee Times” from time to time so register your interest way in advance.

With over 42,000 rounds being played per year, special conditions apply to the “Hallowed Turf”. Tee times are very limited. Don’t delay, apply now.

Advance Registration – In August you can register for tee times on the Old Course by emailing the Links Trust at: . If successful with your application go ahead and accept and pay. Once you have done that let us know and we can book the rest of your itinerary for you, to include accommodation, transportation and other tee times you may require. Also, be sure to check their website for “Busy dates”. Link:

The Ballot – You can enter the ballot 48 hours in advance of the day you wish to play, either by email or by calling the Links Trust.

Early Risers – Failing entry via the ballot then head down to the first tee around 4.00 am on the day you want to play and wait for the starter to arrive. In the off season you can sleep a wee bit later.
