Scotland's two great passions - golf and whisky - come together in an exclusive package 'Divots and Drams' £199pp available from May at the five-star Fairmont St Andrews, the luxury resort at the Home of Golf.
The ‘Divots & Drams' package, available from May until the end of September, offers a round of golf on either of the resort's two championship courses - the Torrance and the Kittocks - and a tour of the nearby Kingsbarns Distillery, one of Scotland's newest, with a visit to the exhibition and a tasting with a tour guide.
In addition, the deal, which costs from £199 per person (based on double occupancy), also includes overnight B&B accommodation and a three-course dinner - including a dram of the Wemyss whisky, one of the family-owned malts available at the distillery - in the resort's newly refurbished clubhouse restaurant with stunning views of the bay.
It was while working as a golf caddie that Douglas Clement was inspired to envisage a distillery at Kingsbarns. His determined belief in the project and an unfettered passion for single malt whisky has been instrumental in bringing the dream to life, a dream which now culminates in an award-winning portfolio of single-cask regional malts and blended whiskies from Wemyss Malts. And the ‘Divots & Drams' package brings Clement full circle in linking his beloved golf and whisky once more.
The Fairmont St Andrews sits in a majestic cliff-top location overlooking the North Sea and the historic ‘Auld Grey Toon'. The resort boasts two championship golf courses - The Torrance and The Kittocks - and has played host to a number of prestigious events, including both the Open Championship's final local qualifying and the Scottish Senior Open, which it has hosted for the past six years.
As well as exceptional golf and a world-class spa, Fairmont St Andrews includes fine dining, luxurious guest accommodation and exceptional service, as well as unfettered access to the charms of the old town of St Andrews itself, the unique Home of Golf.
Package costs £199pp (based on double occupancy)
