Golf & Green Fees

The Club has a varied golf programme with regular fixtures including Monthly Medals (played on Thursdays and Saturdays), winter Stablefords, and inter-club matches played both home and away.  A range of other fixtures, both individual and team format, are played over the year.

As the club does not own/manage a course, membership gives no playing privileges on any course.

All golf in St Andrews is played on the St Andrews Links courses, which are managed by the St Andrews Links Trust.  Green fees are not included in Club membership, and must be paid directly to the St Andrews Links Trust.

There are various payment options available with regard to paying green fees:

  1. Links Trust Season Ticket.  Covers all green fees for St Andrews courses for the year.  There is currently a long waiting list for this type of ticket for non residents.
  2. Temporary Competition Ticket (TCT).  Those golfers who are members of a golf club in St Andrews, AND are on the waiting list for a Season Ticket may purchase a TCT (£375).  This annual ticket (1 April to 31 March) covers the green fees for eligible Club fixtures over the year, up to a maximum of 30 rounds. Eligible fixtures include regular Monthly Medals and Stablefords, as well as a range of other annual fixtures. If a TCT holder wishes to play in any non-eligible competitions, or in excess of 30 rounds, then he may do so on payment of the appropriate green fee.
  3. Pay-as-you-play.  Rates can be found on the St Andrews Links Trust website.

The Links Trust will be happy to help should you require further information about green fee payment options.
