About The Old Course Hotel Golf Resort and Spa in St. Andrews
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.
The Duke’s St Andrews – With a spectacular setting above St Andrews, the championship The Duke’s gives magnificent panoramic views over the surrounding countryside to the sea.
The Duke’s is highly regarded as one of the finest heathland championship courses in the British Isles and a ‘must play’ course for any golfer. Its style ranks alongside the great inland challenges which demand accuracy and inventive play as well as power golf. And with five separate tee positions at every hole, The Duke’s has the flexibility and challenge to appeal to golfers at every level, with the venue being chosen to host the 2014 International European Amateur Championship, one of the 4 Majors in the world of Amateur golf.
Plus there is the Old Course Hotels association with Kingsbarns Golf Links! – Located 7 miles south east of the ’home of golf’, the game has been played on the site since 1793. Set in an amphitheatre along the coast, nearly every hole boasts spectacular views of the North Sea.
Each Autumn Kingsbarns joins the Old Course, St Andrews and Carnoustie Golf Links as a co-host of the European Tour’s prestigious Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The Old Course Hotel Golf Resort and Spa dining
Road Hole Restaurant – With an award-winning team, the very best of Scotland’s larder, and a passion and flare for the delicious and delectable, the Road Hole Restaurant at the Old Course Hotel is an exceptional dining experience. Uninterrupted and spectacular views stretch across the Old Course towards West Sands and the sea beyond.
Jigger Inn – This historic building dates back to the 1850s, when it was the stationmaster’s lodge, and the history and heritage live on. Today, The Jigger Inn is home to golfing memorabilia, crackling open-hearth fires, home-cooked food and a superb selection of Scottish beers.
The Belhaven Brewery was charged by Herbert V Kohler, owner of the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa and The Jigger Inn, with the task of creating a brew in the style of a classic Scottish Ale that would be as unique as The Jigger Inn itself. The pub’s own Jigger Ale is available only at The Jigger Inn, St Andrews and at The Horse & Plough at Forbes Five Star-awarded The American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin, USA.
Road Hole Bar – Whisky aficionados around the globe flock to the Road Hole Bar to sample more than 300 whiskies representing every operational and many mothballed distilleries in Scotland, including a Tullibardine (the hotel’s own label malt), Highland Malt, 1988, which is only sold in the top 10 percent of bars in the UK, and a rare Ben Wyvis, Highland Malt, 1972. The bar also has an excellent range of cocktails, champagnes and wines. Its daytime menu ensures the Road Hole Bar is the most coveted viewing gallery in the world of golf.
