The Jubilee Course, St Andrews – Scotland

We booked into play the Jubilee Course on Wednesday morning before we knew we had got a place on the Old Course in the ballot. We wanted to make sure we experienced at least one of the courses in the heart of St Andrews.

After finishing playing on the Old Course at 8.20pm on the Tuesday night we were teeing off on the Jubilee Course at 7.20am on the Wednesday morning. The sun had come out but the wind was still blowing. The Jubilee proved just as challenging as the Old Course but again it was thoroughly enjoyable.

The Jubilee Course is the third championship course at the Home of Golf. Built in 1897, it was originally intended for use by ladies and beginners however after seeing its prime golfing location between the New Course and the sea, the Jubilee was converted to a championship layout in 1988.

How lucky are we to have played these two fantastic and famous courses.



This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
