The Old Course at St Andrews is considered the oldest golf course in the world and commonly known as 'The Home of Golf'.

The oldest and most iconic golf course in the world. The Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognised across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status it remains a public golf course, open to all. Booking. There are a number of ways to get a tee time on the Old Course. See below or visit our Booking the Old Course page. Fairway mats will be in use during low season. One of the widest fairways in golf but there is out of bounds left and right. Aim left of centre, towards the small gorse bush at the edge of the Swilcan Burn. Play the second to the middle of the green and take the burn out of play.

This is the most famous course in the world and should be on the Must Play list of every golfer. It is now the recognised home of The Open Championship which has been won here by the greatest golfers of the last half-century including Nicklaus, Ballesteros, Faldo and Woods. Unlikely to win awards for pure golfing architectural merit, it more than compensates with drama and originality.

St Andrews is a town of many and varied attractions. Scholars come from all over the world to study at its famous University. Pilgrims have for centuries journeyed across Europe to the Shrine of St Andrew. And more recently pilgrims of a different sort have travelled from far and wide to pay homage to what is now arguably St Andrews' greatest attraction: the Royal and Ancient Golf Club. On 14th May 1754 'twenty-two Noblemen and Gentlemen being admirers of the ancient and healthfull exercise of The Golf' met and drafted certain Articles and Laws and formed themselves into 'The Society of St Andrews Golfers'. Little did they imagine that over two hundred and thirty years later the club they founded would be the most famous centre of the game in the world and universally acknowledged as the home of golf. From those early days Louis Stanley relates the history of the Club and describes the famous characters associated with it. He tells of the bestowing on the club the patronage of King William IV and the title Royal and Ancient; the development of the Old Course over the years; the early contributions of Allan Robertson and Tom Morris; and the hard-fought Walker Cup Matches between the United States and Europe which the Club has hosted.
