Scotland 2016 - St. Andrews Jubilee Course

As our April-timeframe trips to Scotland and St. Andrews came about, we always have played The Jubilee Course.

As a player begins play on the Jubilee, he/she should not be misled by the start (wide 1st fairway and not a long starting hole). The course is filled with challenging links golf-holes and will always be on our "must play" list.

This Web page is, for now, just a holding place for 2016's photos that I select for later-on merging with photos selected from the 2014 April trip.

(The photos, below, are from information provided by the Links Trust to players/visitors who come to St. Andrews).

2nd Hole Jubilee Course - Second Shot Area - 110 Yds to Green

Take the Correct Path!
Or take shelter if needed...

3rd at The Jubilee Course - The first of many great driving holes at The Jubilee

4th Tee
Par-4, 349 (332) yds.

4th Hole Jubilee Course - Second Shot Area - 130 Yds to Green

5th Tee
Par-3, 142 (132) yds.

5th at The Jubilee - A large, Multi-level Green Awaits.
The pin is normally right-lower level. Good!

6th Tee
Par-5, 480 (422) yds.

If you have a birdie at The Jubilee - It well may be here!
If you can stay out of the bushes...

7th Tee
Par-4, 341 (329) yds.

9th Tee
Par-3, 182 (139) yds.

A new (the present, shown in this photo) green location was opened in 2014.
Prior to that, the green was on the top left part of the green-area shown, below. (Quite near the 10th tee).

14th Tee
Par-4, 423 (Par-5, 415) yds.

A wonderful driving hole - with a very-fair green at the end (a shared-green with the Jubilee 4th).

15th Tee
Par-4, 346 (341) yds.

A positional-driving hole.
The "ditch" area before the uphill green will require some of us to lay-up before the ditch with the second shot.
Longer hitters may want to hit a 3-wood off the tee.
If you don't drive 'straight" on this hole, the mounds and bushes come quickly into play... and, you might not enjoy this golf hole!
I always enjoy it... I am on vacation!
