The month of November has seen the allocation of tee times to selected tour operators for St Andrews Old Course during the 2013 season. Golf Vacations UK were allocated, in conjunction with the Experience Programme, a number of tee times during each month of the season which runs from April through October. Old Course times are not allocated in September as the Old Course is normally closed for much of the month due to the Autumn Meeting and the Dunhill Links Trophy.
The Reservations Team at St Andrews Links have won Golf Secretariat of the Year at the Golf Tourism Scotland Awards. The Reservations team manage and facilitate bookings on the seven courses at the St Andrews Links. In the month of October the team sorted through 2,500 advance applications for 2013 tee-times. The work of the Reservations Team at the Links plays a vital role in giving visitors to the Links a unique and memorable experience.

The Hamilton Grand, which sits behind the 18th green of the Old Course in St Andrews and is owned by Herb Kohler, remains on track for completion in 2013. The apartments, ranging from 2 to 4 bedrooms and a Penthouse Suite, were originally offered for sale with a 99 year lease. It has now become apparent that potential buyers would prefer to purchase freehold.
The present owners are now in the process of preparing a notice of variation of the original planning consent, which reflects the intended change. Mr. Kohler also owns the 5 star Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa which overlooks the famous 17th Road Hole of the Old Course.
