You will receive an email directly from St. Andrews that will announce your Old Course tee time. You will then need to pay St. Andrews directly for the entire group’s green fees by October 31st. If you do not pay by the deadline, your tee times will be canceled and allocated to someone else.
As soon as you have received your tee times, please forward the email from St Andrews to us. Hopefully, your tee time coincides nicely with the other courses already booked. If not, we will do our best to rearrange other courses around your Old Course tee time. Most of the time we are able to rearrange things to accommodate an Old Course tee time and sometimes we are not. We are not able to guarantee this. Worst case scenario is that an Old Course tee time conflicts with a course that we aren’t able to move to another day due to availability. You may have to substitute that course with another course. Some courses require a non-refundable deposits or the full, non-refundable green fee to be paid long before the results of the St Andrews annual application are known. If one of these courses cannot be moved to accommodate the Old Course tee times, you face losing deposits or green fees if you elect to take the offer Old Course tee time. Keep in mind that you can always elect not to take the Old Course tee time that was offered via the annual lottery process if it conflicts with another round on your itinerary. We will recommend that you list a certain set of dates on the application to maximize the chances of an Old Course tee time fitting with other times. However, you can increase your odds of success in getting a tee time, if you add dates in April. We can usually move all tee times from your original dates to April if you are successful.
Once everything has been confirmed, we will follow up with a Summary of Reservations, and your final payment will be due within 14 days of receipt of this document. The green fees for the Old Course will be removed from your trip price to us, as you will be paying St. Andrews directly for those green fees.
