Jay, a single golfer, played the Old Course, thanks to Ballot Buddy, and then used Last Minute Tee Times to play Crail – a local ‘gem’ where tee times are scarce.

Just wanted to write a note and say THANK YOU for your awesome service.
I successfully matched 1/3 entries for the Old Course and had an incredible time with people from Australia, Canada, and Germany, wow.
On the third and final day, after being turned away at Jubilee and New because of member play due to perfect weather, I sat on a bench outside the Links Clubhouse, and used your last minute tee times service and found a surprise availability at Crail Balcomie, where I’ve always wanted to play, and which has been booked solid for weeks. Sunset golf … what could be better!
