Documenting Your Old Course Round: Professional Photography Services at St. Andrews

Getting to play The Old Course at St. Andrews is a bucket list item for anyone who loves the game of golf. Players feel a sense of reverence and privilege as they cross the Swilcan Bridge on the 18th hole, walking in the footsteps of some of the finest golfers in history. As the name “The Home of Golf” suggests, St. Andrews is a place where memories are made every day.

At Worldwide Golf Adventures, we recognize how important a day at The Old Course is for so many of our clients. That’s why we partner with the St. Andrews Links Trust official photographers to offer our clients who play the Old Course a range of options for professional photographs of their day at the Home of Golf.

By purchasing a photography package through Worldwide Golf Adventures, you can receive high-quality, professional photographs of your shots on the 1st, 17th, and 18th holes at The Old Course, as well as group photos at the 1st tee and on the Swilcan Bridge. The photos are uploaded to an online gallery 24 hours after your round, where you can select your favorites and order prints and digital copies.

How your photos are taken

At the first tee, you’re provided an information card that includes a unique code for accessing your photos. The photographers will then take your photos as you tee off, and take additional pictures of you playing the 17th and 18th holes. They will not disrupt your play, and you may even forget you’re being photographed. You’ll also get a group shot taken at the first tee and on the iconic Swilcan Bridge when you finish. 

How to access your photos

After your round has concluded, you can follow the instructions on the information card to view your own gallery of professional photos. The photos will be up 24 hours after you finish your round. If you play on a Friday, the photos will be available in the gallery the following Monday.

Ordering photos and photo books

You can order a number of photographic products, including a 12” x 8” fine art print or a lay-flat photo book. In fact, if you know you’re going to want the photo book or glossy print before you go, you can pre-order them. Please contact your Worldwide Golf Adventures representative no less than seven days before your round for pricing and pre-orders. 

Arranging for special shots

You may ask the photographers to take special photos during the round if you’d like. We will make the arrangements with the photographers, so once again, please let us know at least a week in advance of your tee time that you would like special shots in addition to the 1st, 17th, or 18th holes.
