Old Course Hotel
Bordering the renowned 17th ‘Road Hole’ of the Old Course in the Home of Golf, the Old Course Hotel enjoys a spectacular location overlooking the famous links courses, the West Sands beach and the beautiful Scottish coastline.
Discover the historic university town of St Andrews, just a short stroll from the resort, and explore the surrounding countryside of the ancient Kingdom of Fife.
With a combination of classically elegant and contemporary interiors, the hotel offers quietly confident service, luxurious facilities and a warm welcome in the finest traditions of Scottish hospitality.
This prestigious five-star hotel has 144 rooms including 35 suites and is recognised as one of Europe’s leading resorts.

The Rusacks Hotel
St Andrews is a must-visit destination: from being a Scottish setting for Royal romance, to its vast beach, Cathedral, aquarium, Stanza Poetry Festival and boutiques. Oh, and did we mention golf? Macdonald Rusacks Hotel is within a sand wedge of the 18th hole of the famous Old Course. Stylishly remodelled on a golfing theme, Macdonald Rusacks Hotel offers luxurious accommodation occupied by some of the great names in the game's history.
Our award-winning Rocca Bar & Grill serves fine food and drink against a backdrop of the world's oldest golf course. Magnificent views out to sea take in St Andrews' West Sands, immortalised in the Oscar-winning movie Chariots of Fire. Unquestionably Scotland's greatest golfing hotel, we even have a dedicated Golf Concierge so you won't miss a thing.

Turnberry Golf Hotel
Set in 800 acres of one of the most beautiful corners of Scotland, Turnberry's fascinating provenance and idyllic natural position render any stay a memorable experience.
At its heart is an internationally renowned hotel, a five star experience of superb accommodation, fine dining, relaxing lounges and friendly Scottish hospitality. Here luxury and beauty go hand in hand, providing the perfect backdrop to a range of unrivalled sporting, leisure and business facilities.
More than two centuries ago Bonnie Prince Charlie used Culloden House as his lodging and battle headquarters prior to that fateful battle on Culloden Moor.
Today, this handsome Inverness luxury hotel stands in nearly 40 acres where you are free to wander about the woodland and private gardens to enjoy the exceptional peace, tranquility and majesty of the grounds.
Undoubtedly our greatest asset is the staff. Here Highland hospitality has been elevated to its highest art form without being "stuffy" nor too "proper" or reserved. After all you deserve, without compromise, the very best.

The love for the game of golf inspired Jack & Sheena to acquire "The Dunvegan Hotel" in 1994, and have since developed this establishment into a great place to visit in St Andrews. The hotel is located a mere 112 yards from the Old Course, or as our logo implies 'Only a 9-iron from the Old Course' (depending on the wind!!).
Jack a 4th generation Texan (Texas Aggie '72) and his Scottish wife Sheena, both avid golfers, operate the hotel 'hands on". They and their staff offer the very best in friendly, personalised service and really enjoy getting to know their customers and talking golf with them.
The Dunvegan can comfortably sleep 16 golfers, but you don't have to stay here to enjoy the great golfing atmosphere that is automatic when visiting the premises. As one major golf publication writes; "The Dunvegan is truly a golf lover's delight, and when you visit the famous golfer's corner lounge bar, suddenly you are eating and drinking with the ghosts of former open champions. What could be better!"

For smaller groups of seven and under, a mini-van can be rented to travel between courses. For larger groups or those wanting to add another layer of luxury to their golf tour, a coach is recommended. Not only will you be able to relax on leather seats and discuss the day's golf, but the coach drivers are very knowledgeable about the best pubs, restaurants and sights the Irish and Scottish countrysides have to offer.
