Recognised across the world as The Home of Golf, St Andrews houses the oldest and most iconic golf course in the world where the game has been played for over 600 years. Today St Andrews is the largest public golf complex in Europe where there are 7 courses to be played; the world famous Old Course, Balgove, Eden, Jubilee, Strathtyrum, The New Course, and The Castle Course.
St Andrews is also home to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, one of the most prestigious golf clubs in the world; founded in 1754. In addition to the public courses there are two others privately owned by The Fairmont Hotel – The Kittocks and Torrance courses – where our guests can exclusively redeem 2 for 1 tee times. A few miles south along the coast is the Kingsbarns golf course, renowned for its phenomenal views over the North Sea from every point of the course.
Hosting The Open more frequently than any other, The Old Course welcomes The Open once every 5 years with the next fast approaching in July 2022. The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is also held in St Andrews every Autumn, where one amateur (many familiar famous faces – you might spot Justin Timberlake or Jamie Dornan to name a couple) and one professional golfer pair up and compete in one of the richest golf tournaments on the European Tour.
