Round of Golf for 4 including cart fees: St. Andrews offers 36 holes of championship golf, including their Arnold Palmer Signature design.

No wonder the legendary Arnold Palmer and PGA pros Phil Mickelson, Ken Duke, John Daly, and Rocco Mediate love to play exhibitions here. Also, the LPGA’s Morgan Pressel calls St. Andrews her home course. Valid 5/1/18 to 10/31/18.
