Fairways to Heaven Golf is an Authorized Provider of the St. Andrews Links Trust, providing us the ability to sell guaranteed tee times on the Old Course St. Andrews.
St. Andrews is known as the “Home of Golf “with its most famous resident being The Royal & Ancient Golf Club (the R&A). Dating back to 1457, The Old Course has been the host site to many Open Championships, traditionally hosting the Open every 5th year.
The course has many unique features and iconic symbols in the world of golf. Traditional links golf with nine holes out and nine holes back make for challenging front and back nine scoring depending on the direction of the wind that day. Seven large double greens, shared by two holes, with hole numbers adding up to 18. There are 112 bunkers which are individually named with the two most famous being the “Hell Bunker” and “Road Bunker” and the course can be played in either direction.
While there are many unique features to this famous golf course, you will never forget your opening tee shots with the members of the R&A looking through the windows at you on the first tee. As you make the turn at nine and head back to the clubhouse, you will have opportunity to drive the green on par fours and go for the green in two on the par fives. As you approach the famous par four 17th (named the Road Hole) you will hit a blind tee shot over the “maintenance sheds” of the Old Course Hotel to a dogleg right fairway and one of the hardest approach shots in golf. Finally, no matter how well or poorly you played, your drive at the 18th back toward the famous R&A and the walk across the 700-year old Swilcan bridge will provide memories and photo opportunities that will last forever.
