‘Hit and hope’ is the motto of the Big Deal golf team which may explain why we have yet to get our call-up for next year’s Ryder Cup squad.
Whether you are a scratch golfer or a hack golfer, you are going to love today’s Big Deal on a relaxing two night stay at the four star Macdonald Rusacks Hotel in St Andrews.
Situated within a sand wedge of the Old Course’s 18th hole, the hotel has been stylishly remodelled on a golfing theme which cleverly reflects its sporting heritage.
With vouchers valid until the end of February 2016, this offer would be great for a pre-Christmas getaway or it would make a lovely Christmas present.
Taking the tinsel off the tree is never so bad when a luxurious mini-break is on the horizon.
Dinner, bed and breakfast
Available for Sunday to Wednesday check-ins, this offer is for two people to enjoy a two consecutive night stay in a classic double or twin room at the Macdonald Rusacks Hotel.
Themed around the greats of many golfing eras, the comfortable, classic rooms have period features as well as modern necessities such as WiFi.
As well as a full cooked breakfast each morning, the offer includes a three course evening meal in the hotel’s One Under gastro-bar on the first night.
The friendly One Under gastro-bar will be the venue for your three course dinner on the first night of your stay.
The menus change regularly. Typical choices might be the starter of Shetland mussels cooked with white wine, shallots and parsley followed by the chicken breast marinated in lemon and rosemary with a knickerbocker glory to finish.
See & do in St Andrews
Macdonald Rusacks Hotel has its own golf concierge to help golfers make the most of their stay. However, there is much more to this ancient town than golf. Alongside a beautiful seaside setting, it offers a magnificent cathedral, aquarium and, of course, it was the setting for a certain royal romance. It also makes a great base for exploring Fife’s pretty coastal villages.
Macdonald Rusacks Hotel has been gathering lots of enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor:
‘Gorgeous hotel in a beautiful location. Very high standards of service accompanied by surroundings decorated to a very high standard. The location is just on the beach and by the 18th hole and within very easy walking distance of the local shops, bars and restaurants.’
