About Us

The Old Course Hotel is recognised as one of the world’s leading resorts. It is within three yards of the fairway of the 17th hole, the most difficult par 4 in the world. The hotel overlooks West Sands Beach, site of Chariots of Fire, just a short stroll from the ancient town of St Andrews.


The hotel is renowned for its warm welcome, gracious hospitality and features a combination of classically elegant and contemporary interiors. 


The hotel has a number of dining options to choose from ranging from the informal pub setting of the Jigger Inn to the fine dining of the Road Hole Restaurant with exquiste food and a view to match. 

Guests can also chose to relax in the Kohler Waters Spa, the first of its kind outside the USA, which features a 20-metre pool, hydrotherapy suite, relaxation area and rooftop hot tub. Or soothe body and mind with one of our signature treatments.


Our fitness centre is also available to join, or use as a guest and offers a selection of instructor-led or virtual courses and a state of the art gym and 20m lap pool.


There are 11 golf courses around the hotel, including its own championship course, The Duke’s, which is St Andrews’ only heathland course. The hotel also has an indoor golf simuilator where golfers can practice, learn or play some of the 60 available courses.


The Old Course Hotel offers ideal facilities and gracious hospitality - making it the perfect venue for weddings, meetings, golf outings or simply getting away from it all!
