“Great course - but not the history of the Old course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We decided to play the new course after traveling the red eye to Scotland with out sleep. subsequently we played the famous old course. As a golf course, I liked the new course as much as the old. However, of course, playing the old course is a must, as it is where the history of the game is. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed the new course and highly recommend it.

“New Course, Great Experience”

Despite being late in the season (Oct) the New Course at St. Andrews was in excellent condition. Caddies were top-notch and highly recommended to make the experience the best it can be.

“Playing history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Played the new course in April and loved it. There are definitely more spectacular courses elsewhere but you are, after all,at the home of golf!! The course is challenging -pot bunkers, grass either side of fairway that swallowed balls never to be seen again and then there was the thicket. We teed off with only a few balls and lost them rather quickly luckily there were some to be found as well. Enjoyed immensely and would most definitely do it again.
