With much of the focus often placed on the Old Course we turned our attention to the four other world class golf offerings in the town.

New Course – Read Graylyn’s Course Review 

Tom Morris designed this course as an addition to the Old Course as golf became ever more popular. Also a popular track for the locals.

Green-fee in peak season a very reasonable £75

Jubilee Course – Read Graylyn’s Course Review

Rarely busy this more challenging course requires accurate driving. A favourite of Graylyn’s for a quick 9 during the long summer evenings in St Andrews.

Green-fee in peak season a very reasonable £75

Eden Course – Read Graylyn’s Course Review

Famed for its Harry Colt green formation the Eden has undergone some improvements this past winter to improve course maintenance and continues to pleasantly surprise those who venture onto this part of the links which runs parallel to the Old Course in part before hugging the Eden Estuary.

Green-fee in peak season ONLY £45

Castle Course – Read Graylyn’s Course Review

Set above St Andrews this is the only course not within walking distance of the other four courses. A new design perched on top of the town, just remember to take your camera. Shuttle buses can run you between the other courses and the Castle Course, fit with driving range and clubhouse onsite.

Green-fee in peak season £120
