St Andrews 2011 Tee Times

Thinking about a Scotland golf adventure for 2011?

If your group wants to play the Old Course at St Andrews, now is the time to start planning your trip. Why so early? The St Andrews Links Trust announced yesterday that the advance reservation application forms for tee times on all courses in 2011 are now online and that applications for tee times for all courses in 2011 will be accepted from 10:00 BST on Wednesday, 1 September 2010 (What time is this in my time zone?).

Before considering dates you hope to play on St Andrews Links in 2011, please note the Old Course will be closed on the following dates:

  • R & A Spring Meeting from 2 to 5 May inclusive
  • R & A Autumn Meeting from 12 to 23 September inclusive
  • Alfred Dunhill Links Championship from 26 September to 3 October inclusive

There’s a full list of busy dates for 2011 on their website. Also, be sure to read through the relevant guidelines before completing an application form for tee times in 2011. There are lots of booking process rules and regulations you need to be aware of — mess up and they will reject your application!

Applications may be submitted by e-mail from 10:00 BST on Wednesday 1 September 2010 to the Reservations Department email address which is The application will be invalid if it is sent to any alternative email address or if the application is duplicated. Any applications received before this date/time will not be accepted or considered.

For applications during the high season on the Old Course, tee times will only be accepted from individual golfers and not from any commercial concern.  St Andrews Links Trust reserves the right to refuse any application where it detects the involvement of a commercial concern.
