Golfers arrive St. Andrews

Image
Our San Francisco golfers arrived in St. Andrews this evening and we meet in the legendary Dunvegan Hotel, 120 yards from the Old Course, to have a wee chat about the golf arranged this weekend.


After a couple of business (heavy) meetings in Paris and London the golfers have reached the peace and quiet of St. Andrews, and my goodness the classic Scottish links golf lined up for these two chaps will allow them to be subsumed into golf in Scotland...without them even realising it!


The weekend itinerary follows, it is intense, a degree of fitness is required, but my goodness it is good:

Golf on Old Course Friday March 28th

Image
Specialised travel company Thistle Dubh, our friends over in Centennial Colorado USA, were in touch a few weeks ago to introduce two of their clients travelling to Europe, Scotland and golf at St. Andrews. They asked if we could arrange to get their golfers onto the Old Course which would round out their weekend of golf with the New Course and Carnoustie Championship already in the mix.

Well, with a little bit of good fortune the two golfers from San Francisco, Tim a 10 hdcp and John a 9 hdcp, will be joining our very own John Boyne on the 1st tee of the Old Course on Friday at 07:00am. We three have the first tee time of the day and to paraphrase Colonel Kilgore "I love the smell of a golf course in the morning"...Fore!

Here is Friday's official tee time draw sheet for the Old Course at St.Andrews:

Golf 2014 Season

Image
Lorna, our loyal Caddie Golf Tours 'Intelligence Officer', looks forward to her 2014 golf season.

Now that we are finally into the Spring, I’m looking forward to the 2014 golf season getting up and running. Having promised myself that I would definitely take some golf lessons over the winter, but once again I haven’t yet got round to it.

Of course (ahem...) there’s been some practice at the driving range and a couple of rounds on the Links, including my once a year round on the Old Course, a round on the New and of course the Eden. Oh, and not forgetting the putting competition at Dinosaur-land crazy golf!

Although it’s the start of the golf season for me, I am already aware that I’ve missed a few competitions through my golf club, St Regulus in St Andrews, and this year I definitely aim to play more club games.

This weekend sees our first golf outing of the year, when we are off to stay and play at Carnoustie – some very good late winter golf deals on there at the moment, wh…

Return to Golf in St Andrews

Image
Our client Mike Thomas who came to St Andrews with Caddie Golf Tours in August 2012 has decided that it has been way too long since that first visit to golf in Scotland and has decided to use the tough winter weather in Pennsylvania as an excuse to return to St Andrews.

Mike will once again stay for one week, this time at the end of April, join the St. Andrews Golf Club for the week, purchase the great St. Andrews Links 3 Day Golf Pass which offers unlimited golf on the New (est. 1895), Jubilee (1897), Eden (1914) and Castle (2008) courses here at the St. Andrews Links over a five day period. A wonderful variety and quality of classic links golf courses and all on your doorstep.

Mike will be prepared to golf on the Old Course every day that he is here and we at Caddie Golf Tours fully expect to get him out golfing on the 'Old Lady' at least twice!
