Golfers who have not yet secured a tee time to play the Old Course at St. Andrews in 2016 can still “play a provisional” with Golfbreaks.com.

CHARLESTON, SC (November 2015) — Golf aficionados dream of teeing it up on the St. Andrews Old Course at least once. The world’s inaugural layout at the heart of golf’s birthplace has long represented the game’s most popular bucket list item. Of course, its popularity makes securing a tee time at the Old Course a challenging proposition. Fortunately, golfers who have not yet secured their tee time on the Old Course for 2016 can easily “play a provisional.”
By now, the only way to guarantee an Old Course tee time in advance on a specific date is through a golf operator such as Golfbreaks.com. Otherwise, the only options are the ballot … or standing in line at dawn.
A seven-night package with Golfbreaks.com that includes a guaranteed Old Course tee time and also includes playing Kingsbarns, Carnoustie, Gleneagles and the New or Jubilee courses at St Andrews, costs from $5985 per person. http://usa.golfbreaks.com/vacations/st-andrews-carnoustie-gleneagles/
For those deciding to enter the ballot, not to worry, as there are plenty of other world-class golf courses in the area to play. Golfbreaks.com is on hand to book your trip and provide you with a stunning week of golf.
The good news is that success rates in the Old Course ballot are high. Golfers can also enter the ballot over several days of their trip if they are not successful the first time. Of course, if your name gets drawn, Golfbreaks.com is standing by to schedule all last-minute tee time changes and swap your itinerary around to accommodate the Old Course tee time.
For example, you could stay in St Andrews for seven nights and play the lesser known Elie, Crail, Scotscraig, Carnoustie Burnside and St Andrews New or Jubilee courses from $1555 per person, and enter yourselves into the Old Course ballot multiple times during the week. If successful, your Old Course green fee will be no more than £175 per person — approx. $270 depending on the exchange rate. http://usa.golfbreaks.com/vacations/st-andrews-jubilee-crail-elie/
