St Andrews Old Course
St. Andrews is the most famous golf course in the world. There are various ways of playing the Old Course, the easiest of which is to pay a LOT of money. However, there is a ballot every day from which about 40% of applicants are successful for the next day.
We recommend entering the ballot every day, while also booking a game elsewhere. it is very rare you won't get a place on the Old Course.
