Tour Itinerary

Day 1 -Welcome to Scotland


If you're flying into Edinburgh airport, you'll enjoy a private transfer to your hotel. Just over 1 hour drive from the airport, the A91 2 lane highway will whisk you to St. Andrews, through the rolling hills and farmlands that makes Kingdom of Fife so grand. Enjoy the golf tips playbook we provide each guest with and local stories from the driver on the rich history of 1,000 years surrounding St. Andrews.

Check In - Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort Spa
Upon arrival into St. Andrews, relax in your stately room at the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort Spa. Overlooking the St. Andrews Old Course, the hotel stands inside the corner of the 17th hole dogleg. Golf is everywhere! You'll be walking corridors and staying in the rooms where the elite of the golfing world have. An optional extra of this golf tour package is to decompress after your travels with a soothing massage and swim in the therapeutic wasters of the Kohler Waters Spa or burn off some excess calories at the Spa Fitness Centre. The the Old Course Hotel facilities are world class and the perfect remedy for Jet lag and muscle relaxant before looping the St. Andrews Golf links.

Located 450 yards to the town of St. Andrews the 18th hole (known as 'Tom Morris') is 357 yards, you're a short walk to the delightfully charming downtown of St. Andrews. As you pass the 17th green and treacherous Road hole (17th hole) bunker, you'll walk along the pathway adjoining the 18th fairway. Everywhere you look, there is history from Old Tom Morris shop to the Swilken Bridge. For movie lovers, the St. Andrews Beach behind the 1st tee box was where the opening scenes of 4 time 1982 Academy Award winning film 'Chariots of Fire' were filmed. Wind your way through North, Market and South Streets enjoying the vibrancy of this University town where royalty and dignitaries have been educated for hundreds of years. There is a magic to St. Andrews and you're in for a real treat! Be sure to try our favorite restaurants while visiting St. Andrews: The Grange Inn, a 17th century farmhouse and the The Russell Hotel restaurant located on The Scores which is a 5 minute walk from the 18th green on the Old Course at St. Andrews.

Day 2 -Tee off at 'the Old' golf course


The morning of playing 'the Old' as the locals call St. Andrews Old Course is filled with excitement. For first timers, it is a special occasion to walk in the footsteps of the greatest golfers. For those playing 'the old' again, it is a time to make good on some of those holes which made you swallow your pride on. No matter what, the wind will pick up and what appears a simple 3 wood or 7 iron, will muster every nerve in your body to remain calm. Yet the beauty of the St. Andrews silhouetted town in the background of the Links on the back 9 as you head back from about the 14th fairway is a magical feeling. Our resident St. Andrews caddie tour guide will have breakfast briefing notes for you to take onto the course with 2 tips per hole.

After your round of golf, be sure to walk 3 minutes to to the famous Dunvegan Hotel for a pint of Scotland's finest ale, sharing photos and reminiscing about your miraculous (and not so wonderful) shots from playing St. Andrews. The golfing memorabilia on the walls of the Dunvegan Hotel tell the history of this epicenter of golf. Retire to the spacious luxury of the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort Spa and enjoy one of the many dining choices available including the Sands Grill for local seafood or prime Scottish beef in style or or the Jigger Inn for a hearty pub meal and view over the 17th fairway up to the iconic Royal and Ancient members clubhouse in St. Andrews.

Day 3 -Tee off at 'the New' golf course


A 'full Scottish' breakfast awaits you every morning. Be tempted to order the 'haggis' along with your sausages, eggs, bacon, baked beans and tomatoes. 'Haggis' is a traditional Scottish seasoning that will remind you of a Thanksgiving stuffing your grandma used to make you eat! 'The New Course' is a perfect compliment to 'the Old' course at St. Andrews. By new, we mean it was built by Tom Morris in 1895. Anything less than 150 years old in Scotland is new! Yet don't be fooled by it's name. This course is a true test of links golf and allows you to experience the wonderful view of the Eden Estuary and tight fairways that will test every aspect of your mid irons.

Adjacent to the 18th green of 'the New' golf course, St Andrews Links Clubhouse offers high quality and authentic St. Andrews merchandise. We hear from customers it's a wonderful memory to buy here after a round of golf. You may also wish to dine in the elegant yet informal Swilken Restaurant, tally up those strokes on your scorecard and enjoy the majestic view of golfers playing the 'Old Course'.

In the afternoon, enjoy your St. Andrews Walking Tour. This 1.5 hour walking tour will introduce you to the foundations of St. Andrews Cathedral, University, it's famous town residents and their inventions as well as afternoon tea where Prince William met Kate for dates while they were both studying at St. Andrews University. Your evening is at leisure to enjoy the hospitality of the St. Andrews townsfolk. There are plenty of dining cuisines from Indian, Thai, English, Continental or Seafood all within North, South and Market Streets that are within 1 minute walk from each other.

Day 4 -Tee off at Kingsbarns golf course


On the short 10 minute ride to Kingsbarns golf course, you'll be provided your daily golf tips sheet. Kingsbarns’ reputation as one of the most picturesque links courses in Fife will be confirmed as you gaze in wonder at the semicircular bay that provides breathtaking views from every hole. The velvet links and gently sloping fairways provide the ultimate challenge for those seeking a pure Scottish links golf experience. It's sublime. Our favorite hole is the Par 3 15th that depending on the wind will require a 130 yard to 210 yard shot over water and be sure not to miss right of the green! The Kingsbarns golf course clubhouse overlooking the 18 fairway is perched on the hill providing sweeping 180 degree views of the course and Firth of Forth.

After your morning golf at Kingsbarns golf course, tour in comfort to the town of Pittenweem and Anstruther. Traveling for only 9 miles (20 minutes) from Kingsbarns, the scenic road to these coastal seaside towns overlooking the Firth of Forth are often not seen by golfers traveling to Scotland. In Pittenweem, enjoy Scotland's best 'Cullen Skink' - a seafood chowder dating back to the 1700s and experience the life of these picturesque fishing villages that date back centuries. On your way back to St. Andrews, you'll stop by the Kingsbarns Whisky Distillery for a Whisky Tasting. Scotland is famous for whisky as California is for wine. Enjoy learning about the smokiness of the peat when making Scottish whisky.

Day 5 -Tee off at Carnoustie Golf Links


Today, you're getting a lesson in golf. Carnoustie which has hosted The Open Championship 7 times. It will be the eighth time Carnoustie hosts The Open Championship in July 19-22 2018. Carnoustie is famous for the 'burn' - that thin windy deep water hazard that cuts through Carnoustie's fairways and has made mince meat of the best professional golfers in the world. Originally to funnel water into the sea, 'burns' are a menace to any Carnoustie golfer when approaching the greens, particularly if the wind is up. Carnoustie requires skillful golf and be sure to bring your bunker 'A' game. You'll need it. On your drive from St. Andrews to Carnoustie through the town of Dundee, you'll see more of the beauty of Scotland as you cross the Dundee Bridge. Carnoustie is set to be a real challenge so be sure to listen closely to your caddie.

On return to St. Andrews, you'll be invited by your St. Andrews caddie to join him for a drink at the prestigious St. Andrews Club - a private club. It's the perfect location to watch the sunset over St. Andrews Beach and share stories of the good times had over the past 4 days of golfing. A jacket and slacks is required for entry. No jeans and sneakers allowed we're afraid. This is the home of golf after all!

Day 6 -Play “Crail Golf Club, Balcomie Links”


Today you’re in for a combination of stunning coastal views, centuries of history and hugely enjoyable golf at one of Scotland’s most popular of golfing hidden gems.

The drive from St Andrews to Crail takes around 20 minutes but you will be picked up 1 hour before your tee time. Along the way you will start to get a real feel for the day ahead with views of the North Sea from the car as you drive past the Castle Course, St Andrews Bay and Kingsbarns before eventually arriving in Crail.

Although the Balcomie Links was redesigned by Old Tom Morris in 1895, the Crail Golfing Society is actually the 7th oldest in the world having been formed in 1786. While the card of the course is not typical in that there are three par 5’s, six par 3’s and nine par 4’s the course does provide an even mix of easy and hard holes that are synonymous with a Tom Morris design.

Our favorite hole on the links has to be the par 4 fifth. At 447 yards this has to be one of the hardest par 4’s in the world, especially when the wind is up. A dogleg to the right including a tee shot over the rocky beach, this hole provides the golfer with a risk and reward situation and stunning scenery. This is Scotland at it's finest. Overall, you are sure to use every club in your bag at this unique links course.

After your round and prior to heading back to St Andrews, you have the option to visit the wee town of Crail where you can indulge in some afternoon tea and shopping in local art galleries and craft stores. In the evening you may wish to arrange a visit to the Dundee Casino in Dundee which we help you arrange.

Day 7 -Tee off at 'the Jubilee' golf course and depart Scotland


Your exclusive Scotland golfing trip requires one more sensational and memorable round of links golf. The third championship course at the Home of Golf, the Jubilee is considered by many to be the most challenging course on the famous Links. Built in 1897, it was originally intended for use by ladies and beginners; however, after seeing its prime golfing location between the New Course and the sea, the Jubilee was converted to a championship layout in 1988.

Enjoy a private transfer from your hotel to the airport in accordance with your departure flight. There are several casino's in Edinburgh for those who fancy some high stakes entertainment. Alternatively, if you are staying on in Scotland or have made plans, bid farewell to friends over lunch at the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort Spa. Like everyone who departs St. Andrews, you'll be like a jilted lover leaving their first love. "Haste ye back" as the Scottish say. Come back soon.

Kevin's Message

If you're looking to do St Andrews in style then this is the package for you. Over the years I have caddied for hundreds of golfers staying in The Old Course Hotel and there's just something special about getting up, opening your balcony doors to the sight of The Old Course and the North Sea. This package has a great mixture of golf, food and gambling and the reason we put this one together was having witnessed at first hand the great experiences people have had following similar itineraries.

Package Notes

The round on “The Old Course” is subject to availability and is therefore not guaranteed. If we have no guaranteed tee-times available for your chosen dates we will enter you into the daily ballot and if that fails we will have another St Andrews course arranged for you to play.
