As the designated planner for my group, I am looking at the details on how to get a tee time on the Old Course and have a couple of questions:
* Does anyone know when the Busy Times schedule will be posted on the St. Andrews website for 2013? We are trying to decide between travelling in June vs July, and the June 2012 schedule seems much more congested than July. Can I assume that summer 2013 will look similar?
*When requesting online advanced reservations, the information states that tee times are given on a first come, first serve basis. Does that mean that I should be submitting my online application at 12:01 am St. Andrews time on the first Wed of Sept or 12:01 my time on the same date? Or does it matter if I submit the thing when I wake up in the morning? : O)
* Third, when you select the second course you wish to play and indicate that on the advanced res application, I assume that you are not obligated to put down a deposit on that course if you don't get an advanced res on the Old Course. Would that be a correct assumption?
Thanks to all for your experience!
