The Old Pavilion is our newest facility here at the Home of Golf and is located next to the first tee at the Old Course. It offers golfers somewhere to wait in comfort with access to toilets and light refreshments ahead of their tee time. There is also a bag drop facility and information point available for visiting golfers.
Single golfers with suitable handicaps who wish to play the Old Course without an existing tee time should check in at the Old Pavilion on the day of play and the staff will do their best to join them with a two or three-ball group. There is no obligation on the existing golfers to make up a four-ball but common practice is that single golfers are warmly welcomed. With patience, this can be successful but there are no guarantees. Please note that full changing, dining and car parking facilities are available at the St Andrews Links Clubhouse - there is a shuttle service from here to the first tee for golfers.
