The Jubilee Course is the third championship course and the most challenging. Despite this, it was originally built in 1897 for beginners and women. However, after enjoying the proximity to the New Course and the sea, they converted it to a championship course. It’s called the Jubilee Course because the grand opening was on Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee.
The course now has 18 holes, 6742 yards and par 72. The par four 15th hole is the one to look out for. It requires an accurate drive to a narrow fairway followed by a partially blind shot to a green. It has one gorse free side but it otherwise gorsed in. It’s at threat from erosion, so it’s best to keep an eye on your footing.
The Jubilee Course is close to the St Andrews Links Clubhouse and Swilcan Lounge. It provides golfers with lockers, showers and drying facilities. There is club hire, a shop and free parking. Not only this, but there is a restaurant and bar for great food and a post-game drink. The clubhouse is open 6 am for breakfast through to dinner, closing at 10 pm. Bear in mind that the lounge stops serving food at 9 pm.
