Caddie Requests and Club Hire

More and more golfers are now travelling without the basic requirements for a game of golf - namely clubs and shoes. That is not a problem as we carry a large stock of Callaway clubs and shoes available for you to hire.

In addition, for the first time visitor to St Andrews Links or if you're new to Links golf, we would strongly recommend the hiring of a local caddie who will provide invaluable advice on the playing of our courses.

Although we can never guarantee caddie availability please submit your requests below and we will make every effort to meet your requirements.

You must have a Booking or Itinerary Reference to complete this form. For Single Golfers or those without a booking, requests will be dealt with on the day of play. Please ask a member of staff on arrival. If you have been successful in the ballot and do not have a Reference number, please contact Reception by calling +44 (0)1334 466 666.


Caddie Request

Our caddies are trained to assist in all aspects of enhancing the player’s experience. Self-employed caddies are available for hire. If you wish to request a caddie please fill in and submit the form below. Maximum of one bag per caddie.

Caddies at St Andrews Links will normally work more than one round each day and caddie availability will depend on course conditions and pace of play. Every effort will be made to accommodate your request although caddie availability cannot be guaranteed.

Forecaddie: This is only allowed on days of high demand as agreed by the Caddie Manager. On all other occasions the policy of one caddie per player applies.

A gratuity or tip should be based on the level of service provided and is entirely at your discretion. As a guide, tips generally start at £20 however, if you feel the service received has been exceptional and the caddie has enhanced your round the gratuity may exceed this.
