If you have ever considered a golfing holiday in Scotland then St Andrews and Fife must have figured in your plans. Whether it is for a weekend or a fortnight, golf breaks in St Andrews are really something special. The courses are superb, the scenery beautiful and the excellent hospitality of the Albany Townhouse Hotel guarantees the perfect golfing escape.
It is every golfer’s dream to walk on St Andrews Links, the home of golf. A landscape of infinite variety, golf has been played here for over 600 years, evolving on these links into the game we know today. The seven links courses are open to the public and everyone can follow in the footsteps of the legends of the game from old Tom Morris to Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods.
Scotland, the home of golf, boasts some of the finest courses in the world. Many are within easy reach of the hotel. In addition to the famous St Andrews courses, The Old, New, Eden, Jubilee, Castle Kittocks, and Torrance right on our doorstep, there are about 40 courses within an hours drive or less of the Hotel. These include: the great Carnoustie Links, Blairgowrie's Rosemount, the delightful parkland course of Ladybank. Close by are the stunning coastal links courses at Kingsbarns, Elie, Crail, Balcombie Links and Lundin Links.
In between rounds of golf, there are a few other sights in the local area that might interest you!
