The Old Course Hotel features a combination of classically elegant and contemporary interiors, and French designer Jacques Garcia designed many of the hotel’s suites. While the hotel wasn’t actually built until 1968, most visitors are amazed at how it blends seamlessly into the landscape and surrounding architecture of the town. Located just a short stroll from the historic university town of St Andrews, it’s a great vacation spot for golfers and non-golfers alike.
Guests may enjoy the historic university town of St Andrews, just a short stroll from the resort, and explore the surrounding countryside of the ancient Kingdom of Fife. Or, discover everything you desire right at the hotel with an exceptional choice of bars and restaurants from the chic informality of the Sands Grill to the fine dining in the acclaimed Road Hole Fine Dining Restaurant (3 AA rosettes). In addition, the hotel’s traditional pub The Jigger Inn serves fine home-cooked food, and The Duke’s Clubhouse offers a traditional Scottish golfers’ menu. Relax after a long day on the course or exploring at the award-winning Road Hole Bar, which offers Scotland’s finest malt whiskies from over 200 distilleries.
Kohler Waters Spa, the first of its kind outside the USA, provides a truly world-class spa experience, from the Highland Fling signature treatment to the new H2O Inspiration water treatment. It features a 20-metre pool, relaxation area and rooftop hot tub.
There are 11 golf courses around the hotel, including its own championship course, The Duke’s, which is St Andrews’ only heath land course, voted a Top 100 Golf Course in the UK by Golf World and host to the 2014 European Amateur Championship.
