Booking St. Andrews tee times

GleneaglesThe Old Course at St Andrews Links is where the game was first played 600 years ago, but it's easier to obtain a tee time than many might think. There are a number of ways to do so if you have a suitable handicap (maximum of 36 for men and women) and this page explains each of them in detail. No more first come first served - rather a 2 1/2 week window in which to submit your request. Successful applicants notified sometime in early October.

The second, and most common way, is to enter the Ballot (lottery) which is drawn 48 hours in advance. Thirdly, Single Golfers can approach the Starter on the day they wish to play and he will try to slot them in with groups going out that day. Finally, guaranteed premium tee times can be purchased below.

Nearly half of Old Course tee times each year are allocated to the ballot to give people who have been unable to book a chance of playing. It is drawn 48 hours in advance of play and golfers should provide their names, home club and handicaps either online, by phone or at one of the clubhouses before 2pm, two days before the day they wish to play. To enter there must be a minimum of two and a maximum of four players.
