Experience winter golf in all its glory at these sublime links courses.
Re-launched in late 2017 following the completion of a multi-million pound refurbishment, the five-star Fairmont St Andrews resort offers a world-class golf and accommodation experience.
Just a five-minute drive from the centre of St Andrews, it is home to two excellent 18-hole championship courses – The Torrance and The Kittocks – as well as a luxurious hotel, excellent practise facilities and much more.
The Torrance, designed by Ryder Cup and Scottish golfing legend Sam Torrance, is the senior of the two courses and has been used to stage numerous high-profile events down the years, including the Scottish Senior Open for six consecutive years from 2009 to 2014.
The Kittocks, meanwhile, was designed by Bruce Devlin - famed for laying out the King’s Course at Gleneagles among others - and is no less of a test. With many challenging holes hugging the coastline with panoramic views, it is argubaly the prettier of the two courses.
Its coastal location, overlooking St Andrews Bay and delivering
sumptuous views across the North Sea as well as back towards the town,
means that both courses drain well, with hardly any day ever lost to the
elements. For that reason, it is a great option for continuing to play
golf right through the colder, wetter months on full greens, tees and no
Great value winter memberships are available, whilst the Fairmont St Andrews Troon Trophy, an accumulative Stableford competition that runs from October to March, provides competitive golf to keep your game in peak condition.
After your round, savour food and drink surrounded by unmatched views across St Andrews Bay. The magnificent five-star resort boasts a range of dining outlets, each with its own distinct personality and flair.
18 holes on either the Torrance or Kittocks Course throughout the winter for just £50. Memberships also available.
