Scotland 2012 - St. Andrews Links - Jubilee Course - Mid-April/Early-May 2012

The Jubilee Course is one of the St. Andrews Links Trust managed courses. The Jubilee is one of the three courses that we play the most when we visit Scotland. We take advantage of the Links Trust 7-day Ticket and their 3-day Ticket - that are, in my view, prime examples of public golf sharing its wealth with others. With the Ticket, a player can play six of the Links Trust managed courses (all courses other-than the Old Course): We play, regularly, three: The Castle, The New Course and the Jubilee. This may sound like a publicity comment - but, it is not: I can only hope that the Links Trust continue the Ticket program until my next visit to St. Andrews! I assume that the Ticket program will remain if a sufficient number of golfers participate; that, is why I mention it here. I want the program to remain in place!!!

This Web page has some photos taken in 2012. I have some comments as I show the photos; just ignore the comments if they get in the way of anything!

I am not a camera/photo-expert; the photos are taken using a mid-price-range 3-year-old digital camera. Your camera is probably superior! If you have photos of the Jubilee Course or any of the St. Andrews' courses that you could point me to - I would love to see them.

We enjoyed the days -- and, we hope you enjoy the photos.

Getting Started

Where you Are Going

Where you Are Ending

Deceptively "Wide-Open"
The Jubilee is mostly open; not overly constrained by the gorse or other-such matters - although, of course, the gorse is always there...
The Jubilee is well protected with bunkers and do not be fooled: Stay in the middle of the fairway as much as possible!
This is the view looking back at the Par-3 5th from the 6th tee.

Deceptively "Wide-Open"...
This is just one of the wonderful driving-holes of the Jubilee: The par-4 14th.

Second Shot on Par-4 15th.
Although a "lay-up" shot for many players off the tee - the second shot is always a challenge.
I love this hole: The Ladies tee is normally behind the regular tee. My playing partner may not be pleased - but, I am!

Par-4 16th Tee - Bench
If your arrival in St. Andrews is such that you are having a rest-day from golf:
Walking out the public pathway along the Old and New Courses and, then, "cutting over" to the Jubilee 16th tee:
You will find a wonderful late-afternoon spot for enjoying the day's play as well as views of the town.

Ending The Round
The 18th is a wonderful par-4. Long.... and if the wind....
Don't go left or right. Hit it as long as you want to / can!
Enjoy the Clubhouse, afterwards. It is a perfect spot to end the round.
