2017 Tee Time Availability for The Old Course

Guaranteed tee times for the Old Course at St. Andrews are always in high demand. Here is a list of travel dates (beginning the week of) where a package of four or more nights for two or more golfers through Golfpac® International will “guarantee” your round on the Old Course. However, we suggest you hurry as these times are based on a first come first serve basis and can become limited very quickly!

Please note that through on ongoing partnership, Golfpac Scotland & Ireland has significant access to premium Old Course starting times throughout the travel season. This access is reflected in our tour pricing and should be taken into consideration when comparing similar tour quotes from other travel companies that “guarantee” times but ultimately may not be able to provide due to their limited access. Rest assured, the value, service & travel experience you will receive while in St. Andrews will be second to none!

Please Note

All pre-booked Old Course tee times are accompanied by a round on one of the other St Andrews Links Courses. Also, our tee times are either in conjunction with “Stay in St. Andrews” Hotels or are contracted premium times.


There are strict handicap restrictions for golfers wishing to play the Old Course. The handicap limits are 24 for men and 36 for ladies. All golfers must provide a current handicap card or certificate at the time of play. Also, there are no pre-bookable tee times for Saturdays and the Old Course is closed on Sundays.

Important Note

Some of our tee times for St. Andrews carry a required £70 spend voucher—per person, which is good for merchandise and food in the St. Andrews Links Clubhouse. Should your Old Course time come via this route, we will bill you in advance at the same time as your tour cost. This redeemable voucher will be provided to you upon arrival into St. Andrews.

Old Course Ballot

For golfers who have not managed to secure an Old Course tee time in advance, there is still an option to apply for one via the Daily Ballot system. The St Andrews Old Course Ballot is drawn two days ahead of play with the exception of Friday as there is no play on the Old Course on Sundays. For example, if you wish to enter the ballot for a tee time on Wednesday, you would apply on the Monday. To enter the ballot, golfers names, home golf clubs and handicaps are required. The deadline for entering the ballot is 2pm and the results are usually available by 4pm. We will take care of the above process for all golfers who have their golf tour booked with them. We will advise our clients if they have been successful in the Old Course Ballot and if not, arrange alternative golf for them.
