Guided Walks on the Old Course
Join an expert guide on a tour of the world's most famous course. Walk in the footsteps of golf's greats and experience a player's eye view of the fabled links.
Tours take place at 11am and 2pm starting at the St Andrews Links Golf Shop behind the 18th green of the Old Course. Check notice boards for next tour. Walks are scheduled for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in July and August. The tour takes approximately 50 minutes.
Tickets cost £3.00 per person and should be purchased from the guide on the day.
All tickets include a voucher for a complimentary Old Course scorecard and a voucher giving promotional price entry to the British Golf Museum, which is located only about 100 yards from the Old Course.
With the Old Course busy for play six days a week throughout the summer months, this tour is a great way to see the historic Links from the centuries-old fairways, just as golfers from Old Tom Morris to Tiger Woods have done.
Guided walks can be arranged for other dates for groups of eight or more booking in advance.
A longer tour of the Old Course takes place on Sundays in July and August. Lasting about three hours, the tour will take in notorious features such as Hell Bunker and The Coffins as well as landmarks like High Hole, the most celebrated par 3 in golf. Tours begin at the shop behind the 18th Green at 10am and tickets, priced £6 per person, should be booked in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
