Ultimate boys getaway at St Andrews
June 7, 2011

The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa is offering the 'Ultimate Boys Getaway' that includes golf over two courses in the Home of Golf and additional off-course activities that would appeal to the more adventurous male looking to celebrate a birthday or business deal ... or just enjoy a weekend away with the boys.

Whilst staying at the luxurious Old Course Hotel overlooking the 17 th fairway of the iconic course, the boys first get to play the Hotel's very own championship heathland course The Duke's St Andrews, designed by five-time Open champion Peter Thomson followed by 18 holes over one of the seven St Andrews Links Trust courses. The choice includes the recently-opened Castle Course which has met with great acclaim, the respected New or Eden course and of course the world-famous Old Course.

In addition to enjoying golf in St Andrews, the Old Course Hotel and its concierge team can arrange a choice of activities off the course such as a Connoisseur Tour of the Tullibardine Distillery where, whether enthusiast or novice, you can experience whisky tasting and 'nosing' of this exceptional single malt or take a trip around the famous Bellhaven Brewery, the oldest independent brewery in Scotland and one of the oldest in Britain. 

For those that enjoy the outdoors, the Hotel can organize a day of salmon fishing on th e River Tay which is one of the best salmon rivers in the United Kingdom, indeed in the European Union, or set up a day of clay pigeon shooting, archery or rifle shooting in nearby Cluny.

Back at the Hotel for a little relaxation, the numerous facilities of the Resort complete this five-star golfing package: gastronomic dining in the Road Hole Fine Dining Restaurant overlooking the infamous Road Hole of the Old Course, relaxing treatments in the world-class Kohler Waters Spa and the chance down a pint of Jigger Ale in St Andrews' favourite 19 th Hole, the Jigger Inn, also in the Resort.

  • Two nights' luxury accommodation at the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa
  • Full Scottish breakfast each morning

  • A round of golf on one of the St Andrews Links courses*
