Prestige Resorts & Destinations has announced that the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St. Andrews, Scotland has joined the Prestige Resorts & Destinations network of high quality resorts and hotels. This marks the first high profile golf resort outside the US to be added to the network which is marketed to corporate meeting and incentive planners.

“Adding a select number of luxury golf and beach resorts outside the U.S. is part of our overall growth strategy,” said Blair McKeever, Prestige Resorts & Destinations president and CEO. “We will continue to expand our international member properties initially in Europe, in conjunction with our destination management companies. It’s all part of being the best in the business.”

The 134-room Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa is a deluxe five-star resort hotel offering outstanding service, its own golf course (Duke’s Course), luxury spa and six acclaimed restaurants. It is adjacent to the world-famous 17th ‘Road Hole’ with spectacular views of the Old Course links, Fife coastline and St. Andrews, Scotland’s oldest university town.

The resort has ten conference rooms with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment and secretarial/translation facilities that can accommodate meetings up to 500 attendees. Each of the rooms has a distinctive view. The French doors of the Links meeting room, for example, opens to the Commonwealth Garden alongside the 17th fairway of the Old Course. The Millennium Wing provides a high-tech computer system for simultaneous links between public areas and sleeping rooms, allowing companies to download and utilize their own software during their stay.

The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World.

Prestige Resorts & Destinations is a network of 40 distinctive high quality resorts with more than 14,000 guestrooms across North America and now Europe as well as destination management companies in 41 countries worldwide. Prestige serves as a total site selection resource for meeting and incentive planners.
