    St Andrews Golfing Highlights

     

    Our St Andrews Golfing packages have been designed by our travel specialists to deliver matchless experiences while catering to your every need. This travel experience combines flights, airport transfers, accommodation in select Hotels and Resorts and hand-picked activities and experiences in select World’s Ultimate destinations.

    Edinburgh
    Edinburgh is Scotland’s compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.

    St Andrews
    Golf has been played on the Links at St Andrews since around 1400 AD and the Old Course is renowned throughout the world as the Home of Golf. The game grew in popularity and by the 19th century it was part of the way of life for many local people, whether as players, caddies, ball makers or club makers. Golf still plays a major part in the culture and economy of St Andrews today. As the 600 year history of the Links has unfolded, one simple track hacked through the gorse and heather has developed into seven public golf courses, attracting hundreds of thousands of golfing pilgrims from around the globe. St Andrews Links is the largest golfing complex in Europe and all six 18 hole courses can be booked in advance.

    The Old Course
    The Old Lady is unique among the world’s great golf courses. From the nerve racking 1st tee shot, you take up the challenge that has humbled so many of the world’s top golfers. The Old Course is unique in that it owes little to the hand of man in its design & layout. From the moment you arrive at the first tee in the shadows of the majestic Royal and Ancient Clubhouse, you cannot help but be absorbed by a sense of occasion, anxiety and ultimately excitement. Despite its age, the wonder of the St Andrews’ Old Course has stood the test of time and continues to challenge the best golfers in the world into the 21st Century.

    The New Course
    Designed by Tom Morris in 1895, this is an undulating course similar in characteristics to the Old Course. The layout was based on the traditional out and back routing, among its most famous features are its shared fairways and a double green at the 3rd & 15th holes.

    Jubilee Course
    The Jubilee Course at St Andrews was the third championship course built in the town. Opened for play in 1897, the course was named in honour of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, which celebrated her 60 year reign as the British monarch. The Jubilee Course began as a twelve hole course but it was lengthened to an 18 hole layout eight years later in 1905.

    The Castle Course
    Opened in July 2008 by HRH Prince Andrew, Duke of York, the Castle Course is the newest addition to St Andrews’ golf experience. The course offers views out over the ancient town of St Andrews, out to the North Sea and to the Angus coast and the Grampian mountains in the distance.

    Kingsbarns
    Only six miles from St Andrews the course sweeps majestically along the sea near the charming village of Kingsbarns. Designed by American, Kyle Philips, the course is one of three hosting the annual Dunhill Links Championship. For more than half the holes, the sea is directly in the golfer’s active frame of play. Spacious fairways rolling and twisting through dune ridges and hollows and large inviting greens make this the ultimate links experience.

    Carnoustie
    A truly classic links course, Carnoustie has hosted seven Open Championships since 1931. As one of the oldest courses in the world, it has been played by all the great names of golf. With a daunting cocktail of gales, thick rough and devilish bunkers, Carnoustie has earned its reputation as one of the most challenging courses in Britain.

    Gary Player Golf Course
    Built in an extinct volcanic crater, the fairways of the Gary Player Golf Course stretch over 7000 metres. This 72-par, 18-hole walking only championship course it is definitely one of the world’s longest golf courses and its challenge is both physical and mental.

    The Lost City Golf Course
    In the elegant shadow of the Palace of the Lost City lies the interestingly 72-par, 18-hole mixed-terrain golf course also designed by Gary Player.

Enjoy a Bush Breakfast and spend the rest of the morning at leisure. Lunch at a location that will leave a lasting impression.

Spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing in a lounge or take part in any activity offered by your lodge.

    Leopard Creek Golf Course

Golfing addicts will be in their element at Sun City with a choice of two exceptional, yet very different golfing experiences at the Gary Player Golf Course and the Lost City Golf Course.

    Gary Player Golf Course

    Enjoy golfing at this historic and memorable golf course, designed by none other than the legendary Gary Player. It remains a wonderful test of golf and is another powerful advertisement of all that makes African golf such an unforgettable experience. The par-five ninth hole is one of the most scenic with its island green, while the stroke one eighth hole is a tough test for even the professionals.

    The Lost City Golf Course

    Spend the day golfing on the Lost City mixed-terrain golf course, once again designed by Gary Player, which offers a completely different experience to the Gary Player Golf Course. Golf carts are a necessity for this course and are included in the green fees, owing to the many changes in elevation. One of the highlights of the Lost City Golf Course is the 13th hole, a par-3 with an African continent-shaped green, bordered by a pond hosting several large Nile crocodiles. The Crocodile Lounge is a lovely light lunches and snack bar – open to everyone, not only for players – that offers remarkable views of this striking course and a halfway house included in the green fees. There is also a driving range and a putting green available for keen golfers to practice their shots.

    Travel to Cape Town

    Winelands Golf

    Enjoy a round of golf at the Pearl Valley Golf Course. This masterpiece was shaped by the vision of golf legend Jack Nicklaus and his unique touch is evident throughout the course. Pearl Valley has two signature holes, 4th and 13th, both offering majestic views of the surrounding mountains and lakes. The 4th hole is as challenging, with limited margin for error as you need to cross the creek three times en route to a tricky green. This par 5 is regularly listed as one of the best par 5’s in South Africa, epitomising the ideals of ‘risk and reward’. The 13th hole is a daunting par 3. As the water cuts from the right and a greenside bunker waits, one is mesmerised by the cautious tee shot. This hole tests both your ball striking and your nerve.

    Return Flight

    Upon your arrival at the airport you will return your car rental before your flight back home.
