Check In

First thing is to check in to your rooms and a chance to freshen up. Depending on your itinerary your host will then organize transportation to the golf course, restaurant or any other destination.


For most groups, we meet on the first day for the “Tour Briefing and Welcome Drinks”. This is a great opportunity to answer any last minute questions, book restaurants, assist with directions or whatever it may be. The free dram is not too bad either!

Driving Range

Should you wish to visit the driving range for some last minute practice before hitting the 1st tee, we offer courtesy transfers to The St Andrews Links Golf Academy prior to play in St Andrews (Complimentary range balls are also included).

The First Tee

We meet all of our clients before they play The St Andrews Links Courses to settle any nerves and also take care of organising caddies and check in with the starter. This gives us a great opportunity to catch up on your experience so far and assist with anything for the rest of your tour.

Should you wish to use the services of caddies for any of your rounds during your trip, we are happy to arrange this. Caddies can be invaluable and whilst they may save you a few strokes, they can also add greatly to the experience.

What Happens On Tour - Caddies


The highlight of your tour and the reason you’ve chosen to visit the UK and Ireland. Prepare to play some of the worlds finest golf courses. Steeped in history and tradition, these are the lands that gave birth to the beautiful game we all love. Nothing compares to golf on the links as you are about to find out!

Playing Golf


Although the UK has a reputation for bad weather, that is not always the case. However you should always be prepared for some rain and wind during your stay. It all adds to the experience and difficult condition at times is something many of our clients look forward!!

Bad Weather on The Old Course

Souvenir Old Course Scorecard

Should playing The Old Course be part of your trip with Links Golf St Andrews, we offer all of our clients a signed brass souvenir scorecard as a memory of their day on the world’s most famous course.


19th Hole

On a par with the golf itself is the chance to sit back and share your stories of the links. The pot bunker from hell, the birdie at the road hole, the perfectly struck four iron into wind that went 100 yards, the putt that measured over 200 ft. All enjoyed inside a warm bar with a pint or a wee nip. Perfect.


Back to the hotel, a quick shower and change and time to check out the facilities. Travelling around the country playing golf, often in testing conditions can be exhausting and at Links Golf we understand the importance of a good bed and comfortable amenities to prepare you for the following day.

Celtic Hospitality

Often as memorable as the golf itself can be the enjoyment of good company in the surroundings of a local hostelry where it’s easy to relax with a dram or two. Celts are known worldwide for their friendly and outgoing manner and always happy to pass the time talking golf and life. Slainte Mhor (to your very good health)


Although the main reason is undoubtedly to sample some of the finest golf courses in the world, but if you look beyond the fairway, you’ll discover historic castles, breathtaking scenery, internationally-renowned art galleries and museums, and the best whisky in the world! Links Golf will provide you with an extensive list of must-see sights and attractions.
