Accommodations

This beautifully restored 4-star Victorian boutique hotel sits on the cliffs overlooking St. Andrews Bay. The new food & wine motif is part of the chic Hotel Du Vin chain of exquisite small properties of high standard and excellent reviews. The 36 bedrooms are clean, fresh and attractively furnished and some overlook the coastline and toward the golf courses. Located just two hundred meters from the first tee of the Old Course, this hotel is the perfect spot to soak up the atmosphere in golf’s most iconic town. Guests will enjoy relaxing on a single malt whisky or choosing from the many wine by-the-glass and beer selections in the uber-cool cocktail bar. For elegant cuisine made with local ingredients, the Bistro Du Vin is the perfect fine dining experience and one of the most popular with “foodies” in St Andrews.  Ma Bells, a very famous pub/lounge (where Prince William & Princess Kate met while students at the University) is located adjacent to the Golf Hotel and is a great place to hang out with the locals. The Hotel Du Vin is widely regarded as the best boutique value in town!  Premier Golf Rating: A

Executive Suite upgrade - $360 per person (based on double occupancy)

 

Golf Courses

Kingsbarns Golf Links: Opened in 2000, and only six miles south-east from St. Andrews, Kingsbarns Golf Links was developed by two Californians (Mark Parsinen and Art Dunkley), and designed by a third, Kyle Phillips, one of the top new architects in the business. The course was carved from farmland that sweeps majestically along the sea, between the villages of Kingsbarns and Crail. The sea figures prominently on every hole at Kingsbarns and the course (four sets of tees range from 5142-7126 yards) looks like it has been there for 200 years, although it only opened in July 2000 (there was an older 9 hole course on the site from 1793-1939).  On more than half the holes, the sea is directly in the golfer’s active frame of play, so bring a camera because this is one of the most scenic courses in the world.  Sir Michael Bonallack, Captain of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club (the R&A bought part of the course!) says, “Mere words cannot convey just how extraordinary the place is … it must be seen to be believed … and once seen it will never be forgotten.” Many travelers remark that Kingsbarns is their favorite and most beautiful links course in Scotland. Come early, the complimentary practice range and putting green are among the best practice facilities in Scotland.  The course is ranked #65 in The 2015 Golf Magazine World Top 100. 

Gleneagles - Kings Course: Few hotels can boast such a great golf course as Gleneagles Kings at 6504 yards and par 70. Considered a "parkland" course, as opposed to most Scottish courses being "links", The Kings Course requires good judgment to navigate the hills, bunkers, sloping fairways and tricky greens. There are plenty of good caddies here, and pull carts can be managed quite easily. Known for its superb maintenance condition (for a Scottish course), Gleneagles Kings features a tough uphill first hole and two fine finishing holes, the dogleg 17th where your tee shot cannot run to the right, and the downhill 18th toward the stately hotel in the distance. In between are a series of beautiful holes that require accurate shotmaking and constant course management to navigate the ever-present trouble spots. The course can be played as a par 68 from the white tees, and a par 70 from the championship tees the clubhouse at Gleneagles features a nice modern pro shop with many quality items, and a nice grill (called The Dormy House). In addition, for years the Kings Course was site of the Scottish Open held typically the week before the British Open

Carnoustie Golf Links: Another city managed municipal course, like The Old Course in St. Andrews, Carnoustie is one of the most difficult golf courses in the world. The course dates back to the 1500's, but was most recently redesigned by Old Tom Morris and James Braid. Frequently called "evil", "monstrous" and "brutal", Carnoustie was the site of Ben Hogan's only Open appearance and victory, and the first of Tom Watson's five Open victories. The 1999 Open staged the famed “les miserables” by Jean Van de Velde, and a victory by local player Paul Lawrie.  This course is most evil when the wind picks up, and the distances to the many creeks (burn's) are hard to judge. Holes 15 through 18 are perhaps the toughest finishing holes in the world, with the Barry Burn crossing the fairways enough to catch at least one of your shots. When these links are in good condition, there is an endless array of shots required to tame the "beast". If there was ever a course that requires a caddie, this is it!  The course is located on Links Parade along the beach in Carnoustie, about 45 minutes north of St. Andrews (if not delayed by traffic or the rail line – so allow an hour drive). This course is ranked #25 in The Golf Magazine World Top 100.

The Open Championship will return to the Carnoustie Championship Course in 2018
