St Andrews Golf Ballot

Nearly half of the total number of tee times on the Old Course each year are allocated to the Ballot to give people who have been unable to book a chance of playing.
It is drawn 48 hours in advance and golfers should provide their names, home club and handicap details either by phone or at one of the clubhouses before 2pm, 48 hours before the day they wish to play.

Early morning Starter

Single golfers with suitable handicaps can play the Old Course by approaching the Starter early in the morning of the day they wish to play. The Starter will try to join the golfer up with the first available two or three-ball providing the golfing group are happy with this, however it is at their own discretion.
