Play golf in st andrews

I'm planning to play a round of golf at st andrews with my 2 sons aged 16 and 14. Any suggestion which course to play? how long does it take to drive from glasgow to st andrews?

to drive will take you approx. 3 hours.

http://www.standrews.org.uk/

this is the site for all golf bookings on St. Andrews Links trust

courses. depending on your and your sons handicap all courses can be booked with the exception of the old course where you will have to enter the ballot.

a very similar course is right next to the old course - jubilee course is nearly as old and almost as tough to play.

A new course which comes highly recommended is the castle course.

Thanks Tomjunior.

My sons' handicap are 12 and 20. We plan to play at new course on 30 May 2012 and will be driving from Glasgow. If we start at 8 am, would we have enough time to hire clubs and start playing at 12 pm?

works out the route from Glasgow to St. Andrews to be roughly 140km taking just under 2 hours.

not including any traffic jams due to building works - you should have plenty of time to get to St. Andrews, rent clubs, have a look & a few putts before playing.

New Course is great - but be prepared for everything. If you can bring light rain gear/windbreaker - if you see dark clouds approaching from Leuchars - get into your rainjacket fast....

would recommend hiring a caddy - tips are invaluable for a more enjoyable round.

To get a feeling for the place you would be better staying overnight in St Andrews its a lovely place

It will take you approx 2 hours from Glasgow by car

Hi Tomjunior,

Thanks for your advice. We have booked a caddy and hope to have an excellent time there.

Hi gusm007,

We're staying in glasgow for 4 nights before returning to London. It is a 12 day holiday in uk for us. So, we have quite some luggage, its more convenient to do a day trip.
