Old Course Hotel

Check Availability @ Old Course Hotel

The Old Course Hotel enjoys a spectacular location, with uninterrupted views out to sea, running the length of the famous Road Hole (17th) of the Old Course. The hotel lies so close to the course, that the preferred 'line' from the 17th tee is actually over the corner of the hotel. One of Scotland’s leading resort hotels, there is nowhere finer to stay when visiting the Home of Golf.

From entering the lobby with its sumptuous furnishings and beautiful flower displays, the hotel exudes luxury and elegance. Each of the 102 bedrooms and 32 suites have unrivalled views over either the Old Course or the surrounding countryside and all are appointed to a high standard, offering marbled bathrooms and plush furnishings. Of particular note are the 21 contemporary bedrooms and suites in the newly built wing, offering cool and clean minimalism in a Japanese style.

The Old Course Hotel offers a unique choice of dining experiences, including two restaurants. The Road Hole Grill, on the top floor with stunning views over the golf courses out to sea, with its chandeliers and traditional wood paneling, offers the very best of classic fine dining. Head Chef David Kinnes specialises in using the very best of Scottish produce, meat, game and seafood.

For a more relaxed approach, the Sand Seafood Bar & Restaurant offers lunch or supper at very reasonable prices in a fresh, young atmosphere. Designed around a long sweeping bar, with dark woods, soft lighting and marine influences this is much more contemporary and nods towards the Japanese influences seen in the newer rooms. The menu is a wonderful eclectic mix of Scottish, Mediterranean and Oriental dishes.

On the fourth floor, adjacent to the Road Hole Grill lies the award winning Road Hole Bar. This offers excellent cocktails and a selection of Scotland’s finest whiskies from some 119 distilleries. While for a more informal 19-hole pint, or indeed a hearty snack, the 19th Century Jigger Inn lies adjacent to the hotel.

The Old Course Hotel boasts its own private championship golf course in the Dukes Course, located two miles from the hotel. Designed by five times Open Champion Peter Thompson, the parkland course is the perfect complement to St. Andrews' famous links courses. But it's not for the faint hearted, the course is often described as the longest inland golf course in Scotland.

As one would expect from a five-star resort, the range of sport and leisure facilities provided here is second to none. The Spa at the Old Course offers a pool, sauna, solarium, steam-room, Jacuzzi and gymnasium, while a team of therapists provide the best in health and beauty treatments from six well appointed treatment rooms.
