What are the responsibilities of the Lead Golfer?

St. Andrews requires that one member of the group be designated as the Lead Golfer. The Lead Golfer of the Advanced Application does not need to be the same Lead Golfer of your trip with Pioneer Golf. The Lead Golfer is responsible for all aspects of the application, and we’ve outlined these responsibilities below.

  • The Lead Golfer must be physically present at the time of play. Other members of the group may be replaced leading up to the date of play, but the Lead Golfer name cannot be changed.
  • The Lead Golfer must be the one to submit the application to St. Andrews. St. Andrews doesn’t want any third parties submitting large amounts of requests and then reselling the tee times, so it must be done by someone in the group.
  • If successful in the Application, the Lead Golfer is responsible for paying the St. Andrews green fees for the entire group. You will need to authorize a charge of roughly $700 per golfer to St. Andrews. This payment will be made on the payments page on St. Andrews’ website. We will then deduct this amount from your balance to us.


IMPORTANT: If you do not feel comfortable with the above responsibilities, or if there is a possibility that you may need to unexpectedly cancel your participation in the trip, please let us know as soon as possible and provide the name of the best person in your group to be the Lead Golfer of the application. We will then work directly with that individual and copy you on all correspondence to keep you informed.
