Old Course St Andrews


Coronavirus Covid-19 golf in Scotland

The impact of the virus Covid-19 on golf here in Scotland has been the closure of all golf courses across the country including the Old Course St Andrews. All our golf courses, and golfers, are waiting on an announcement from the Scottish and British governments about when restrictions are removed and golf can be played. We are hoping that this will be by late summer this year.


Golf Tour Planning

When do you contact Caddie Golf Tours?

Why not now. Please send an email to caddiegolftours@gmail.com and we can begin to plan your late 2020 golf trip or 2021 Scotland golf tour.

If the Old Course St Andrews is a must play during late 2020 Caddie Golf Tours will concentrate on securing tee times here at St. Andrews and the local Ballot will be the route to gain access to the Old Course this year. The following link explains the Old Course St Andrews Ballot

The R&A's cancellation of The Open at Royal St Georges this year, rescheduling to next July 2021, means that the 150th Open that was to be played on the Old Course will now take place in 2022. Unexpected tee times for visiting golfers will appear during June and July 2021, when the Old Course would have been closed for The Open. Contact Caddie Golf Tours to assist with your application for 2021 Old Course tee times.

How long is the tour to last: 1 or 2 days, a weekend or a week?

How long is the golf tour? A question the golfers must answer, work & family are usually the over-riding factors. From experience we have found that a seven day golf tour to include 5 - 7 rounds of golf is usually plenty for those travelling from overseas. We would recommend staying in a maximum of two locations rather than constantly moving, unpacking and packing. Stay awhile and enjoy your golf.

Scotland is a fabulous golf destination. With international flights into the main hubs at Edinburgh and Glasgow, and our local airports at Glasgow Prestwick, Inverness and Aberdeen are also well served from Europe and long haul destinations making golf in Scotland ideal for short golf trips and we can prepare one, two and three night stay and play golf offers for you.

Accommodation:  Bed & Breakfast, House, Hotel or Castle?

We have excellent relationships with the leading hotels in Scotland including the 5* Fairmont Hotel, delightful Ardgowan Hotel, famous Dunvegan Hotel & Bar and the excellent Hotel Du Vin in St. Andrews, along with our favourites across Scotland.

Self drive or guided with personalised driver?

Caddie Golf Tours have a special relationship and contract with Arnold Clark, Scotland's best vehicle hire company, who supply excellent rates for self drive vehicles which we  pass onto our clients.

Alternatively a driver and coach can be organised for your tour if you would prefer the 'no hassle' transport version. We use the experienced dedicated transport operators St Andrews Executive Travel and Courtney Travel who can provide luxury coaches to accommodate groups of 8 - 24 golfers. For smaller golf parties of 1 - 8 golfers my good friends at Mylet Travel assist with their fleet of luxury tourers.
