Owner description: A golfing Mecca for the most accomplished golfer to the enthusiastic amateur, a trip to St Andrews Links is one which realises the ultimate dream for golfers worldwide. From the iconic Swilcan Bridge on the Old Course to Tom Morris’s masterful architecture on the New Course, St Andrews Links has developed over 600 years to become one of the most famous locations in golf. Perhaps most fascinating however, is the fact that all seven courses at St Andrews Links are public and open to everyone. St Andrews Links is the largest public golfing complex in Europe. From the terrifying sight of Hell Bunker on the Old Course to the gentle slopes of the Balgove, the Home of Golf has become the ultimate golfing destination for all ages and abilities. The three championship courses; the Old Course, New Course and Jubilee Course run parallel to each other along the famous St Andrews Links West Sands of St Andrews. Nestled on the opposite side of the Links are the Eden, Strathtyrum and the only nine hole course, the Balgove. A five minute drive from town is the seventh course, the award winning Castle Course which offers dramatic views over St Andrews from its spectacular cliff top location. Away from the course, explore the fantastic facilities St Andrews Links has to offer. Learn the game where it was first played at the St Andrews Links Golf Academy. The Academy offers first-class tuition from PGA-Qualified St Andrews Links professionals and is home the only Callaway Performance Centre (custom-fit) in Scotland. The driving range has over 60 bays, including 22 indoors, and a landing zone which is over 400 yards long. All mats are air cushioned, and five bays include the Power Tee automated system. There is short game area, which includes a replica of Road Bunker, and a putting green, once the second on the Eden Course and regarded as one of the finest in St Andrews. Shop our fantastic range of official merchandise from our five retail stores, the Old Course Shop, the 18th Green Shop, the Links Clubhouse Shop, the Castle Course shop and the oldest golf shop in the world – Tom Morris. Finally relax in the Swilcan Restaurant in the Links Clubhouse, The Eden Clubhouse or the Castle Course Clubhouse with a wee dram as you reflect on your visit to the Home of Golf.

“Castle Course”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

Awesome, but tough! One of the most pituresque courses in the UK. Fantastic club house and a great meet & greet team. Bar and food excellent, but plenty of attentive staff comes at a price.

“Not bad”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Excellent views. Food is average, Service is usually very good - unless they are busy. Prices average. Can cater for groups and children.

In busy periods, expect to wait for a table

“Try the Scotland For Golf experience”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

The Links are fabulous - all of the courses are special. I highly recommend trying the Scotland for Golf experience which was my present to my partner. He had an hours golf lesson at the Links golf academy with Scott a PGA professional, and then they went and played the Jubilee Course, with Scott giving my partner a tutored round of golf, coaching him at each hole. He went round in 4 under his handicap on a gusty day and was ecstatic.

“HISTORY”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Standing on first tee, could not believe that I was teeing off where the most famous golfers in the world had been. A humbling experience, but really enjoyed it.
