St. Andrews Old Course Ballot - Premier Golf

St. Andrews Old Course Ballot

Please Read Carefully

If you are receiving this link it is because we will be using the 'Old Course Ballot System' to try to acquire an Old Course Tee Time. The ballot is NOT A GUARANTEE that you will play the Old Course.   

Our local staff will manage the ballot process on your behalf. We will enter your group/groups into the “Ballot” lottery each day you are in St. Andrews.  Applications are made in groups of 2 to 4 and are submitted 48 hours prior to the day of play. If you have a group of 5 or more, the tee times will most likely be split up and you will probably will not all play together. Results are announced at 4:00 pm 48 hours prior to the day you wish to play.  Handicap proof is always required on the day of play (24 or less for gents, 36 or less for ladies) with a golf association handicap card (USGA GHIN), handicap printout or letter from your golf professional.

If you are unsuccessful in the ballot process, your final option is to go early to the first tee and join the singles queue for a tee time. Our on-site representative will advise in advance if this process is worth the wait based on how many times are available, and what kind of time you would need to get to the first tee to have a realistic chance to play. This method still does not guarantee access.

Although our goal is to get everybody on the Old Course, the substantial increase in visitors in recent years prevents us from promising that some or all of your group will be able to play the Old Course.

Please complete the box below to acknowledge that you have read and understand the situation regarding access to the Old Course and that by using the ballot it is NOT A GUARANTEE OF PLAY for you and your group.
