7.24am 10th March 2009 - Travel

Whilst indulging their passion for golf, visitors can enjoy life in a luxury suite at the five-star Old Course Hotel, which enjoys a unique location overlooking the 17th Road Hole of the Old Course and St Andrews Bay, made famous by the iconic film ‘Chariots of Fire’.

In addition to a round over the Old Course, the three-night package includes a tee time at The Duke’s Course, the Peter Thomson-designed heathland course that offers majestic views over the historic town of St Andrews, and a round over either the New or Jubilee Course.

Off the course, the Suite Golf package also comprises dinner on two nights in the Road Hole Fine Dining, the hotel’s award-winning restaurant that boasts three AA rosettes, and a 50-minute luxury spa treatment in the hotel’s Kohler Waters Spa.

“St Andrews is a world-renowned golfing Mecca and the best place from which to enjoy it is the luxurious Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa, which borders the 17th fairway of the Old Course making the experience all the more memorable ,” says Debbie Taylor, managing director, Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa.

“Due to overwhelming demand, the St Andrews Links Trust traditionally runs a daily ballot for the highly-coveted tee times on the Old Course, so it is a real bonus to be able to include guaranteed tee times on a course considered a must play due to its historic place in the heart of golf.”

The Suite Golf package, launched in honour of ‘Homecoming Scotland 2009’, a series of events throughout the year in honour of poet Robert Burns’ 250th birthday, starts at £1,770 per person based on two people sharing and is valid until the end of 2009.
