St Andrews in 2021 However, with all courses closed in 2020 for several months and travel restrictions and quarantine measures in place, St Andrews Links Trust (SALT) made the decision to offer reservations on any course the opportunity to reschedule to 2021 or 2022.
The minimum pay for a St. Andrews caddie is 45 pounds plus tip. The tip for a good caddie is at least 20 pounds—65 total. They give 5 pounds back to the Links Trust.
Supposedly, this is the name assigned to completing a hole having struck the ball five fewer times than par. In other words, this is what happens when you hole-out a Par 7 with two strokes or shoot a Hole-In-One on a Par Six.
The St Andrews Old course has restrictions on use of trolleys (pull carts) – they are only permitted after 12 noon between April and October. A caddie is therefore essential for many golfers who would not wish to carry their own clubs.
The R&A has decided to cancel The Open in 2020 due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. The Championship will next be played at Royal St George’s in 2021. The 150th Open will be played at St Andrews from 10-17 July 2022.
You will need a handicap certificate to play the Old Course. So be sure to register for one with the USGA or your local club in advance of your trip. So even if you don’t have the money to play the course or couldn’t score a tee time in the ballot, you can still walk the entire golf course.
Famously known as the Home of Golf and home to Scotland’s oldest University, St Andrews is a wonderful historic, seaside destination on many a bucket list.

According to Whidden, a caddie should be tipped about 40 to 50 percent of the green fee. And the group should split the forecaddie tip evenly, usually between $50 and $100 in total.
If you don’t mind paying high season rates, I think that late May and/or early June is the best time to visit Scotland for golf. The courses and hotels aren’t too busy, the days are long, and the courses are in great shape. If you want to take advantage of shoulder season rates, I recommend April .
For a forecaddie, about $20 to $25 per player. For a caddie toting just your bag — around $40 to $50 — a little less for a double bag because the other player should be tipping said caddie, too. But if you want to be safe, don’t be afraid to ask the head pro or director of golf.
