What is the Advanced Application?

The Advanced Application is an online application to receive tee times for play on the Old Course for the upcoming travel season, in this case for play in 2023. An alternative name for the Advanced Application is Private Advance Tee Times and it is commonly referred to as the annual tee time lottery for Old Course tee times.

Old Course tee times obtained through the Advanced Application are always paired with a second St. Andrews course — the New Course, the Castle Course, the Eden Course, the Strathtyrum or the Jubilee Course. You can select the second course you wish to play, however, depending on availability and course closures you are not always guaranteed to get the course you select. Luckily, all options make for a great day of golf!
