11 reviews of Jubilee Course
We played the jubilee in a windy links course weather. I went in expecting it not to be quite the same as the new course or the old course. But i was wrong. This course offers challanging par 3s. a beautiful atomosphere around the surroundsings off the course. the course is brilliantly laid out the bunkers greens and fairways are perfect. This course is my personal favourite at St Andrews. I recommend my friends to play this course. The value of money was good aswell I thought it was well worth the money. The staff were very polite and pleasent at this course as all st andrews courses it has a feel of challagne and pride when you play. This is one of the best if even the best everthing about it was excellent and there not many courses in the world that i can say that about. If you ever have the chance to play play there it is the home of golf !!!
We played the Jubilee on a calm day ( not really links weather ). Beautiful challenging course and a great atmosphere, of course somewhat touristic regarding the souvenir shop and the clubhouse. Not as full as we thought it would be, nevertheless the round took much to long because of a flight in front of us that would have been urged on or taken away had this been the Old Course, all week we had talked about the speed of play of British golfers being so good so these were the exception to the rule. The clubhouse was very good, the only course with towels for guests as is customary to Continental europe. Dining after our round was fantastic at affordable prices and with a very kind and enjoyable staff. All in all a great day at a great course.
I agree with one of the other reviews that had the Jubilee not been in St Andrews it would be a much more famous course and probably better priced, but then you wouldnt be aible to say "I played St Andrews" :-)
As part of a three day pass we played the Jubilee as the second 18 holes in that day having played the New Course in the morning. This course was even tougher than the New Course.
The condition of the course was again first class, tees and greens again immaculate. Some of the holes on the Jubilee are really tough and as a 28 handicapper and being the second round of the day I struggled especially on the back 9.
Overall I found as with the New Course earlier the Jubilee was a tough round of golf, with excellent tees and greens and again stunning facilities and views.
We played the Jubilee Course today, 24th March 2008, for only £46. What a bargain! This is one tough track. The greens were excellent to putt on and very quick. It was very windy which makes this course even harder but a joy to play on. The first 7 holes were into the wind which made it a very tough start. I especially liked the 2nd, 5th, 8th, 15th and 16th holes. If this course was not next to the Old Course it would be more famous than it is. A classic links course.
We played the Jubilee one day after the Old Course because we didn't get a tee time on the New Course, but we were not disappointed by any means. Great links golf, challenging and memorable holes. The course played considerable longer then the Old Course although admittedly the fairways are more generous particulary on the long holes. The course was in excellent condition (May 2005) especially the greens.
Returning to St. Andrews I will definitly play the Jubilee again
We played on a Saturday while some of our group played Kingsbarns. Not sure this is Kingsbarns, but it's a fantastic Plan B. There's a little more undulation to this course than some of the others which give you the feeling you have it all to yourself. #15 is a gorgeous hole - one of my favorites in Scotland. This is a great track in my opinion and I will certainly go back.
Played on Sunday 20.10.02. As the Old Course is closed on Sundays I walked to the links clubhouse to see if I could get a game on one of the other courses. The Starters were very helpful, as was everybody else in St. Andrews and I was able to join three other golfers. Two were young lads and the other was one of the professional caddies. Everybody was pleasant and our off-duty caddie was particularly helpful in showing us the way round. The course is a stiff chalenge and you have to keep your wits about you. Straight hitting is essential otherwise you will soon be dipping into your supply of golf balls. The course was in excellent condition and the greens fast. If you have seen St. Andrews bunkers on the television - yes they are that deep!! The pick of the holes are the 8th, through a valley of dunes, and the 15th, tight with a valley in front of the green, both par 4's. Yes we all want to play the Old Course but if you can't get on, the Jubilee makes an excellent substitute. I will play it again - and try to hit the ball straighter, putt better and KEEP OUT OF THOSE BUNKERS!!!!!
Played in July 2002. We played a late afternoon round after 18 earlier in the day at the Duke's Course. This was probably the best use of the course. A good walk to end the day. No memorable holes and easy playing.
Sorry to say it but the Jubilee is disappointing. It's overused and overpriced. Yes I agree it's an experience to play in St. Andrews but there are so many better courses within half an hour of here.
Fantastic Experience!!! Had Not Dreamed It Would Be Possible To Actually Play There Without Having Booked A Tee Time. Strolled Into The Excellent New Clubhouse Just To See What Kind Of Hystrionics Would Have Been Required To Play. 5 Mins Later, I Had To Choosing Whether To Play The New Course Or The Jubilee Course. All Ladies Clubs Had Been Rented Out, So I Trotted Across The Road Hole To Rent Gear From The Old Course Hotel (club Rental Cost As Much As The Green Fees). Joined Three Elderly Gents From The Town For A Thoroughly Enjoyable Round -- Thanks, In Large Part, To Their Generous Sharing Of Local Knowledge! The Course Is Really Tough, And Spectacular. I Have An Indelible Memory Of The R & A Clubhouse And Town Of St. Andrews, Illuminated By A Late Afternoon Sun And Viewed From One Of The Back 9 Tees. Television Cannot Hope To Do Justice To The Scenery, And The Experience Is Unforgettable!
