For only £1 per player you can play 9 holes of putting in front of the Old Course and Clubhouse - definitely recommend playing if visiting St.Andrews. The 18 hole course is rather challenging, but fun!

Great fun for only £1 each. If you like golf, you have to do this. The course is challenging because of the small hills. The putting surface is not great, which makes it even more enjoyable.

This is a must-visit location in St Andrews! It's fantastic fun and always a challenge. You can visit here and play either a 9 hole or 18 hole course. And don't think that "once you've played the course that's it." They change the Tee and...More

We've all played on flat, often boring, municipal putting greens. Sadly there are far fewer of these than there used to be but the Himalayas, so-called because of the testing undulations on this putting course, is decidedly the best putting green I've ever played on....More

Crowdy place without any in advance booking. But if you are by accident in St Andrew go there and play up to 27 holes of short game. No scores, just fun.
