Golf Days

Golf as we know it today originated in St Andrews, which is considered by most as the Home of Golf. Golf has been played at the famous links for over 600 years and today there are seven courses at the venue. The 14ELBC golf days will use the Castle and Jubilee courses.

Castle Course

The Castle course is the seventh of the St Andrews Courses. Set on a rugged cliffline overlooking the ancient town of St Andrews, the course combines breath-taking views with a memorable golfing challenge. The Course won several international awards in its first year of opening and was included within the prestigious Golf Digest Top 100 rankings almost immediately.

Jubilee Course

Built in 1897, and named after the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, the Jubilee Course is full of variety and renowned for the strength of its par threes. The course was used alongside the Old Course for the Amateur Championship in 2004, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club’s 250th anniversary year.
