St Andrews Links is known around the world as the Home of Golf. The game has been played there for 600 years and so much of the history and tradition of the game is associated with the Old Course.

Golfing legends such as Old Tom Morris, Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros and Tiger Woods have all played and won Opens on the Old Course.

Exclusive to iPhone and available now on Apple’s App Store, The Old Course is the golf game for you. With unique top down touch-and-swipe controls, beautiful graphics and addictive game-play, The Old Course is easily played and enjoyed by anyone.

Cobra’s Mark Ettle said, “It’s been a dream to work with St Andrews Links and to bring the Home of Golf alive and onto iPhone in such an enjoyable and playable game.

“The fabled Links course has hosted The Open Championship which it has hosted more times than any other venue and this dedicated iPhone App ensures that this unique playing experience is always available and replicated at the touch of a hand.

“The overall experience and game quality offered by the iPhone is amazing and now all golf lovers and game players can be instantly transported to the famous Links of North-East Scotland and be offered the opportunity to play at the Home of Golf 24 hours a day.”

Izzy Cameron, brand development manager of St Andrews Links Trust, said, “The Old Course and St Andrews Links brand is recognised around the world and is something we are increasingly developing in digital media. The game offers an excellent likeness of the Old Course and is enjoyable to play. We believe it will appeal to golf fans everywhere.”
