There will be small increases on some of the courses next year following two years where the fees have been frozen. The high season green fee for the Old Course will be £140, a £10 increase on last year. The New and Jubilee courses will change to £70, a £5 increase. The green fees for The Castle, Eden, Strathtyrum and Balgove courses will remain the same.
The Castle Course will be included in the Links’ Three and Seven Day tickets and Advance Reservable Three and Seven Day tickets without a surcharge from April 18, 2011 onwards.
Alan McGregor, chief executive of St Andrews Links Trust, said, “Trustees gave careful consideration to setting the green fees for 2011 and decided that modest increases on some of the courses were appropriate. We have enjoyed a busy season on the courses despite the temporary closures for the staging of the Open Championship. We hope that the global media exposure generated by the Open will attract high numbers of visiting golfers to the Links next year.”
The application forms for making Advanced Reservations for 2011 on the Old Course, The Castle Course and the other St Andrews Links courses are now available to download from www.standrews.org.uk.
The Advanced Reservations process opens from 10am BST on Wednesday, September 1 when the forms should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will not be accepted prior to that time.
