Hovercrafts at the home of golf? Believe it!

2016 03 Hovercrafts

Fairmont St Andrews is revolutionising the traditional society or corporate day golf outing with a unique set of challenges to freshen up the format.

Attempting to add further fun in the home of golf, players will be able to hire a GolfBoard, the thrilling mix of surfboarding on land while transporting clubs around the course. And on a similar theme, organisers can invite guests to enter the ‘Hover Challenge’, by slaloming through a specially designed route on a hovercraft.

But the fun doesn’t end there. For those looking to share their experiences on social media and save their memories of the course, photo booths can be placed on the first tee as well as in the clubhouse just in case the battery has run low on the smart phone.



Furthermore, organisers are now challenged to start the day off right with some lighthearted competition over breakfast. Strategically placed around the clubhouse are a number of different activities including the clubhead speed challenge, fruit smash and the ultimate activity of hitting out to a target in the North Sea.

“This is an exciting time for us at Fairmont St Andrews as we tackle the stereotypical golf day head on,” said director of golf Amy Yeates. “As a more modern venue in a region steeped in history and tradition, we are trying to set ourselves apart and effectively combine what golfers are really after, flexibility and entertainment. Golf is fun and we aim to offer an experience that is much more than just 18 holes.”
