Why purchase official merchandise?
For more than 600 years St Andrews Links, like the game of golf, has evolved and today boasts seven courses, a golf academy, three clubhouses and five official golf shops - all the surpluses from which are reinvested back into the organisation. We are a charitable trust and therefore all purchases help to protect and maintain the world famous courses here at the Home of Golf.
The flagship store for St Andrews Links, the Old Course Shop offers the widest variety of men's and ladies' apparel featuring exclusive collaborations with brands such as Brooks Brothers, EP Pro, Peter Millar, Zero Restriction and Fairway & Greene. A signature collection 'The 10th Hole' by Bobby Jones was created in 2010 to celebrate the St Andrews Open Championship and the hole on the Old Course which bears his name. The '1927 Collection' by Bobby Jones can also be purchased in the Old Course Shop.
The St Andrews Links Tartan range continues to be the most popular collection in store. Designed specifically for St Andrews Links and registered with the Scottish Register of Tartan, the men's check features a traditional green base to signify the famous Links whilst the Ladies tartan uses purple to mirror the heather on the courses.
Fine quality knitwear in lambswool, merino and cashmere are available which are sourced and made in Scotland.
If you're looking for something for the little golfers in your life, the Old Course Shop also stocks our popular Kids range including t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts and a range of accessories. The collection caters for all ages including baby suits starting at 0-3 months.
In addition to the apparel ranges, the Old Course Shop has the largest selection of prints, glassware and accessories in St Andrews. If you are looking for a gift, this is the shop to visit.
As the name suggests, the 18th Green Shop has arguably the finest location of any golf shop in the world. Overlooking the Old Course, this pavilion style building underwent a recent refurbishment in order to provide a better experience for the thousands of guests who visit the store each year. Before being converted into a shop, the building was originally used as a Caddie shelter.
During high season the shop is popular with golfers picking up last minute purchases for their round, however it is equally popular with visitors due to its remarkable location overlooking the 18th Green and 1st tee of the Old Course. The shop is a hub of activity and a must visit on a trip to St Andrews.
Located inside the Links Clubhouse, this contemporary shop offers a wide range of Ladies and Men's official merchandise including the St Andrews Links and Old Course brands. You will also find the exclusive St Andrews Links 'own label' using the best quality cotton and merino wool. In addition to the apparel offering, the store also has a selection of prints available and a wide range of accessories.
The Links Clubhouse is nestled in the heart of the Links and is also home to the Swilcan Lounge offering the very best in fresh local produce whilst situated above the clubhouse the famous roof garden offers panoramic views over the courses.
The Castle Course is the seventh course at the Home of Golf, offering a different experience from the rest of the Links. Located on a rugged cliff-top overlooking the Auld Grey Toun, The Castle Course has an elegance, beauty and respect for tradition that is mirrored in the merchandise bearing its name.
Built on land rich with history, The Castle Course is named after Kinkell Castle which stood on the headland known as Kinkell Ness in the middle ages. A prominent local family, the Moneypennys, were landowners for centuries, acquiring the land from the Prior of St Andrews in 1211.
The centrepiece of their family coat of arms was a Scottish peer's helmet, which has been adapted as the logo of the course.
Merchandise bearing this crest is exclusive to The Castle Course shop and ranges from clothing to a wide selection of accessories.
Tom Morris established is business in St Andrews in 1848, when he presided over the most significant period in the development of golf. His contribution to the game is still prevalent not just in Scotland, but across the world, more than just a golfer, he was an innovator, an entrepreneur and above all a gentleman.
Tom traded in this shop from 1866, making it the oldest golf shop in the world.
As well as shopping the full collection of clothing in store, you will also be able to peruse a variety of merchandise including luggage, wallets and head covers.
