DAY 3

GOLF:

Crail Balcomie Course

CRAIL GOLF CLUB - BALCOMIE COURSE

Formed in 1786, the Crail Golfing Society is the 7th oldest Golf Club in the world and consists of two courses, the Balcomie and the Craighead. Situated only 9 miles from St Andrews, these true links style courses are extremely popular with both locals and tourists. The Balcomie was laid out by Tom Morris and opened in 1895. Set on a magnificent coastline this challenging course is highly regarded for its testing holes, standard of greens and breathtaking scenery; watch out for the fifth, described by Sam Torrance as the hardest par four in Scotland. A second course, the Craighead, was designed by Gil Hanse (his first course outside the U.S.) and was opened in 1998, providing a worthy alternative to its famous and historic neighbour.

HOTEL DU VIN, ST. ANDREWS (Superior Sea View Room)

DAY 4

Travel, via private transfer, to Kingsbarns (15 minutes). Return transfer is included.

GOLF:

Kingsbarns

KINGSBARNS

Six miles south of St Andrews lies Kingsbarns, possibly the last true links to be developed in Scotland. In fact, Kingsbarns' golf origins go back some 200 years when it was home to a nine-hole course and golf club. The new revival is heralded as a truly spectacular and worthy addition to the legendary St Andrews portfolio. Embracing the sea as it does, the layout is superb with each hole offering a great sea view, and seven of them actually playing over or alongside the sea. The course design provides great variety and presents a stiff golfing challenge balanced by generous greens and wide fairways. Kingsbarns blends together all the advantages of a modern course with the traditional features of an old links course.

ACCOMMODATION:

HOTEL DU VIN, ST. ANDREWS (Superior Sea View Room)

DAY 5

GOLF:

St. Andrews - New Course

ST. ANDREWS - NEW COURSE

Enjoy a round on the New Course at St. Andrews, which was designed by Old Tom Morris in 1894. At 6,604 yards, many locals consider this par-71 layout as tough a test as the Old Course itself. The best holes are at the turn, meandering through some of St. Andrews' largest dunes.

Please note: To play the Old Course, you also have to play one of the other courses in St. Andrews. Additionally, the Fairmont St. Andrews offers a shuttle service to the golf course.

The Old Course was site of the 2005 Open, which saw Tiger Woods capture his second Open Championship on the Old Course. It was the 27th time that St. Andrews has hosted the Open. Walking up the 18th fairway toward the "Valley of Sin" and the Royal & Ancient Clubhouse is a thrill that every avid golfer should experience.

Please note: Tee times here can be difficult to arrange in advance; please see itinerary notes. The Old Course has handicap restrictions of 24 or lower for men and 36 or lower for women. Additionally, the Fairmont St. Andrews offers a shuttle service to the golf course.
