Played the Old Course in April, 2011 (perfect weather)! You definitely need a caddy on the course as many holes crisscross from front to back nines and share common greens. An experience of a lifetime walking some of the same footsteps and fairways of the greatest golfers in history! If you're in Scotland you have to play the Old Course! The Old Tom Morris bridge on the 18th fairway was the location for my group of 18 to capture a memory of a lifetime!
Eden Course, Gorgeous Links Golf
5.0 of 5 starsReviewed June 22, 2019
For GBP 50 you get a lot of St. Andrews feeling and can score a good score on the not so long track. Some holes are parallel to the Old Course. The caddies from the Old Course also collect spoiled balls from their customers on the Eden Course!! Nursing looks as good as on the Old and New Course. Easily get a start time.
A must for those who love golf. The visit to the "Home of Golf" will remain unforgettable, especially when at sunset on the 18th run of the Old Course the view across to the clubhouse and the surrounding town. Admittedly, the "old" places around the Old Course can not be compared with modern American-style designer facilities, but that's not the way to Scotland. And the Castle Course on the other side of the little town of St. Andrews completes the package of St. Andrews Links outstanding, as it is an incredibly varied, demanding dune course with beautiful views of the sea. In addition, the atmosphere is very uncomplicated and the local people are very friendly. We were fortunate enough to spontaneously get a tee time for the Old Course in the summer due to a breakdown. I never used a Caddy during the three stays in St. Andrews, the contact with the Greenkeepers and starters was always excellent and characterized by great friendliness and laxity. Conclusion: Nothing for "competition / and fast players", but something for connoisseurs who do not mind that you have to even share a double green with the oncoming flight. This short wait can then be used very well to get in touch with his traveling from all over the world flight partners of different skill levels and share his joy in this visit.
