This is where we assist you to enter names in a ballot 48 hours before the day of play. At 4 o’clock pm the same day of entering we will find out if you were successful. There are no guarantees of success however just under 50% of tee times are allocated by the ballot. A minimum of two golfers are required to enter the ballot and a maximum of four per card.

Single Golfers

Single golfers who wish to play the Old Course without a tee time should check in at the Old Pavilion on the day of play. Early check in advised. The Starters will do their best for you to join a two or three ball group. Most groups are welcome to single golfers joining them however there are no guarantee.
