Your Itinerary

The 5 star Fairmont St Andrews is located on the outskirts of St.Andrews on the road to Crail. Sitting on the summit of a spectacular cliff formation, the hotel and its two championship golf courses have breathtaking panoramic views of the River Tay estuary, the North Sea, the Fife countryside and the medieval skyline of St Andrews. This international resort opened in the spring of 2001 and was then taken over by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, providing an excellent standard of service and a meticulous attention to detail. In addition to the two excellent golf courses on site, you may enjoy the Spa, a haven of peace and tranquility. Enjoy a few easy lengths of the 18-metre pool, relax in our Jacuzzi, sauna or steam room. Included in your rate is full wifi internet access in the public rooms and guest bedrooms.

<Day 3 ~ St Andrews Links Trust Commercial

Today play the Old Course at St Andrews via the Daily Ballot.  A limited number of starting times are available daily (except Sundays) for the ballot process.  While play is not guaranteed it does represent a potential opportunity to play the Old Course if a tee time cannot be secured in advance of travel.  This is the ''Home of Golf''. The Old Course has played host to the greatest golfers and produced many of golf's most dramatic moments. Wide double fairways, seven extensive double greens, and a multitude of intimidating bunkers are just some of the unique features you will encounter. Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods each hoisted the Claret Jug here on two occasions. In 1927, Bobby Jones claimed The 62nd Open six years after taking four strokes to escape the Hill Bunker at the 11th and tearing up his scorecard!  No. 17, the “Road Hole”, is always an adventure as is negotiating the Valley of Sin at the short par-4 18th. 

Our Resident Golf Manager in St.Andrews will make all the arrangements to enter the players names into the ballot. The results are known 48 hours prior to play and PerryGolf will reschedule booked golf arrangements should that be necessary.

<Day 4 ~ Kingsbarns Golf Links

Today play Kingsbarns (tbc). Golf dates to a nine-hole layout here in 1793.  It was commandeered by the military during the Second World War not to reappear until Kyle Phillips took an interest in the late 1990s. His design ushered in the era of “modern classics” when it opened in 2000 looking like it had been there for years.  The terrain is links style perfection with tumbling fairways and sandy soil that produce the fine-bladed fescues which are the cornerstone of fast-and-firm playing surfaces that characterise links golf.  The fairways are spacious, the greens are large, exceptional views of the North Sea are found on every hole.

<Day 5 ~ Carnoustie Golf Links

Today play Carnoustie  (tbc).  The first record of golf played on this links land dates to 1527.  In 1842, a 10-hole course was designed by Alan Robertson followed by an 18-hole course by Old Tom Morris in 1857.  James Braid extended the layout in 1926 which is essentially the links found today. While it is relatively flat, Carnoustie is exposed to the elements. A combination of length and accuracy are required as golfers face narrow corridors from the tee while approach shots demand precision to greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. Arguably the toughest finishing holes in championship golf are found here highlighted by the par-4, 476 yard 14th and the 245 yard par-3 16th. Ben Hogan won The 82nd Open at Carnoustie in 1953. Tom Watson and Gary Player also hoisted the Claret Jug here as has Padraig Harrington and mostly recently Francesco Molinari in 2018.

<Day 6 ~ Gleneagles Hotel

Today play the PGA Centenary Course (tbc) of Gleneagles Hotel. This highly acclaimed Jack Nicklaus design, is a fine test of championship golf. A modern layout featuring many strategic bunkers and vast putting surfaces. The course can stretch to over 7,088 yards from the tips and affords wonderful views of the Grampian Mountains and the Perthshire countryshire. The course was the host venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup and the 2019 Solheim Cup. Please note a very limited supply of golf carts are available for hire. Certain restrictions may apply, please advise your Golf Travel Specialist.

Golf Schedule

Crail - Balcomie Course image

A combination of stunning coastal views, centuries of history and hugely enjoyable golf is what makes Balcomie Links one of Scotland's most finely polished, golfing gems.This traditional, classic links course was laid out by the old master himself, Tom Morris, and opened in 1895. Created in the days when course design was governed by the natural lie of the land and not the mechanical earth mover, Balcomie has the unusual combination of three par fives, six par threes and nine par fours, producing a tough par of 69. Extraordinary holes abound, along with those which seriously challenge and those which are more comfortable. The sum total is a layout which both enchants and delights, but which also demands and punishes, testing all the skills in a golfer's armoury – as well as his nerve. Those length seekers who believe Balcomie will be a soft touch, do so at their peril.

Gleneagles - PGA Centenary Course image

This highly acclaimed Jack Nicklaus design is a fine test of championship golf.
