Sample Golf Vacation Package - The Holy Grail

Old Course, St Andrews

Golf Course Selection

Jubilee Course, St Andrews - The third championship course at the Home of Golf, the Jubilee is considered by many to be the most challenging course on the famous Links. Built in 1897 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, it was originally intended for use by ladies and beginners; however, after seeing its prime golfing location between the New Course and the sea, the Jubilee was converted to a championship layout in 1988. Perceived by local folk to be a tougher proposition to both the New and the Old, due to its tight angles and undulating contoured fairways, accuracy is paramount throughout. The Jubilee co hosted the British Amateur Championship in 2004. Yardage 6742 Par 72

Old Course, St Andrews Ballot - It is essential for all keen golfers to make a pilgrimage to play this fine old links at least once in their life. To play the course you must possess handicap certification and a maximum handicap of 36 for both Gents and Ladies. We have based your quotation on the Old Course Ballot. This is where we enter your names in a ballot (lottery) two days before you plan to play and you discover whether you have been successful by 4pm. Over 50% of tee times are allocated in this way but there are no guarantees of success. If unlucky with the Ballot result there are numerous top class courses that we can arrange tee times at short notice in the vicinity to St Andrews. Any green fee savings would be refunded directly to the Golfers.

Kingsbarns, nr St Andrews - Kingsbarns is only 6 miles from St. Andrews. With its true links turf, contoured rolling fairways and majestic vistas of the sea this course is already considered to be a classic. The sea plays an integral role in the course design and the sandy dunes also feature prominently in enhancing the course landscape. As Sir Michael Bonallack (recently retired Secretary of the R&A) remarks - "Kingsbarns might well be one of the last true seaside links sites capable of development in Scotland. It is an extraordinary setting".

Carnoustie - Hosted an exciting Open Championship in 2018, but will probably be better remembered for 1999 when Jean Van De Velde came unstuck at the final hole forfeiting a 3 shot lead. The narrow fairways and high rough which that Championship was remembered for are now no longer such feature and Visitors can look forward to a beautifully conditioned course where accuracy is rewarded but poor course management exposed.
