I am planning a trip to Scotland and we really need to play the Old Course. I have been doing some research and it seems very difficult or expensive. Is it as hard as this article says it is?
I went this summer and played it twice. First time was making a tee time way ahead of time and jumping through all the hoops. Second time I showed up as a single at about 4:30 pm and teed off with a group at 5. Getting on is not as hard as they make it sound. Show up early and you'll get on that day.
