Lambert – Scotland

June 13-19, 2021


Day 1: June 13

Arrive at the Edinburgh Airport and drive 1 hour and 15 minutes northeast to St. Andrews.

Check In: Annandale Guest House

Booked for 6 nights:

  • 1 twin room (2 guests)
  • 1 double room (2 guests)
  • 1 double room (1 guest)*

*(Final night for single occupancy room will be in neighboring Annandale associate guesthouse.)


The Annandale Guest House is a 4-star bed and breakfast situated in the heart of St. Andrews, just a few minutes walk from both the Old Course and the town center. The charming Victorian guesthouse combines a modern contemporary style with lots of original features and greets guests with a wonderful welcoming ambience. Most importantly, hosts Kevin and Fiona are as friendly as can be and always aim to please.

Day 2: June 14

Drive 50 minutes northeast to Carnoustie.

Golf: Carnoustie’s Championship Course

8:40 am – 4 golfers

The 7-time Open host showcases all that is wonderful and challenging about links golf: undulating terrain, riveted pot bunkers, firm and fast fairways, and of course the Barry Burn which famously swallowed Jean an de Velde whole during his infamous collapse at the 99 Open. You will struggle to shoot your handicap and you will love every minute of it.

Lambert Confirmed Itinerary

Day 3: June 15

Drive 10 minutes south to St. Andrews.

Golf: St. Andrews’ Castle Course

Booking will be confirmed once Old Course Advance Application results have been returned.

The newest of the seven courses owned and operated by the Links Trust, the Castle Course is also the most scenic. The clifftop views from high above the St. Andrews town center standout, but so to do the green complexes, which are unlike any you have ever putted on, guaranteed.

St. Andrews Castle

Day 4: June 16

Drive 25 minutes southeast to Crail.

Golf: Crail’s Balcomie Course

10:00 am – 4 golfers

Crail is one of the world’s oldest golf clubs and its Balcomie Course has aged like fine wine. The par 69 seaside layout measures less than 6,000 yards but with ever-present winds, the Old Tom Morris design is no walkover.

Crail – Balcomie

Day 5: June 17

Drive 20 minutes southeast to Kingsbarns.

Golf: Kingsbarns

12:10 pm – 4 golfers

Just down the road from St. Andrews, Kingbarns sits on a site seemingly made for golf. The tilted lay of the land opens up views across the North Sea from just about every hole and you would never know it just opened in 2000 given how seamlessly the routing fits the landscape. Already host to a Women’s British Open and the annual Alfred Dunhill Links, the legend of Kingsbarns will surely continue to grow.

Lambert Confirmed Itinerary

Day 6: June 18

Walk to the St. Andrews Old Pavilion.

Golf: St. Andrews’ Old Course*

*Tee time based on Advance Application success.* Will be booked directly through the St. Andrews Links Trust.

As a 30-time Open Championship host and universally considered the Home of Golf, the Old Course in St. Andrews needs no introduction. Champions like Nicklaus and Woods have strolled across the hallowed Swilcan Bridge en-route to victory, meaning the course will forever be etched in history.

Additional Information

*Old Course Note: 

A St. Andrews-Old Course tee time can be purchased directly from the St. Andrews Links Trust via the advance application process. The application is the least expensive way to secure an Old Course tee time before arriving in St. Andrews.

The application must be submitted directly from a golfer that is in your group, although we will guide you trough the application process.  To apply for a 2021 Old Course tee time, you must submit an application for up to eight golfers in August/September of 2020. If successful, the lead golfer will pay the Links Trust directly for both the Old Course tee time plus a mandatory additional round on one of the other Links Trust courses. We have included this cost in your package price so there are no hidden fees but we will deduct that expense from your final balance invoice.

Unfortunately, success in the application cannot be assured. However, there are a few alternative options available should your application be unsuccessful:

1. Ballot: Just about every day the Old Course is open, a “ballot” system allocates a handful of tee times to golfers who wish to enter the lottery. In fact, almost half of the Old Course tee times each year are assigned through the ballot! We will enter your group on each day that you are in St. Andrews and ballot times are available, and we will let you know of the results as soon as they are posted 2 days prior to each date of play. If you receive a tee time on a day that you already have golf scheduled, we should have no problem moving your round to accommodate the Old Course tee time.

2. Standing-by: The first tee starter at the Old Course operates a “stand-by” list on each day the course is open. On average anywhere between 10 and 30 spots are available to single golfers and getting a tee spot is as simple as being one of the first golfers to arrive to the course.

While we can’t guarantee that you will obtain an Old Course tee time through the process outlined above, your chances are very good, and especially for groups in St. Andrews for at least 4 days.
