The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St Andrews has launched the 12th year of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship Dining Club.

The forthcoming Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is a celebration of links golf with a field of world-class professionals teaming up with some of the most famous amateurs.

The five red star resort is an official partner for the four day event that culminates with the final round on the Old Course in St Andrews on Sunday 7th October.

Helen Parker, Director of Sales, Marketing & Real Estate Developments at the iconic resort, said that the dining club will showcase the exceptional talents of the award winning team and provide championship visitors with the opportunity to experience the home of Scottish cuisine in the Home of Golf.

“The Club was launched in 2000 and has proved to be exceptionally popular with those visiting the Championship.

“This year, with more accolades and awards for our dining team and experiences – as well as our recently relaunched Road Hole Restaurant – we expect the level of interest to be even higher,” said Helen. 

Head chef Ross Marshall has overseen the preparations for the dining experience, and he said that the menu had been designed to include some of the finest and freshest Scottish produce, as well as selected ingredients from around the world, to reflect the international flavour of the event. 

Whether diners choose from Crayfish with Gazpacho or Carrot Risotto with Parsley Crust as a starter, or tempted by Gartmorn Farm Chicken, Rib-eye Steak or Organic Salmon as main course, many of the ingredients used by Ross and his team for the Dining Club experience have travelled less than 30 miles from where they have been reared, produced, caught or foraged. 

 “The enjoyment of any event is heightened by a great dining experience, and we are keen to ensure the Dining Club exceeds the expectations of those attending this year’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship,” said Ross. 

Resort General Manager Daniel Pereira is looking forward to welcoming players and guests to the resort in October.

“The Championship is always a fabulous end to the UK’s golfing season and this year, newly-crowned Open Champion, Ernie Els, will be playing.

“What better way to enjoy this incredible event than joining us for the Dining Club overlooking the world famous Road Hole of the Old Course?

“It is the finest view in Home of Golf – and our guests will enjoy the very best Scottish food.”

The package – from £195 per person – is available on Thursday 4th, Friday 5th, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October.

It includes morning coffee and tea with freshly baked pastries, a 3-course lunch with fine wines, afternoon tea and coffee with homemade scones, a souvenir programme and daily draw sheet, entry badge and preferred parking together with priority seating in the grand stand overlooking the 18th green of the Old Course. 

Enquiries/orders should be sent to Helen Parker.
