‘More enthusiasm than skill’ 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 stay at the four star Macdonald Rusacks Hotel in St Andrews.
Situated within a sand wedge of the Old Course’s eighteenth hole, the hotel has been stylishly remodelled on a golfing theme which cleverly reflects its sporting heritage.
With vouchers valid until the end of January 2014, 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.

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:
‘Great food, great location, great hotel. Our room was fantastic and offered wonderful views over St Andrews Golf Course. The hotel has wonderful features and paintings with the restaurants offering a lovely environment with great food. The hotel manager even took the time to talk with us after our meal to ask how our overall experience had been (a nice touch). We had a wonderful time in St Andrews and when we return we will certainly be returning to the Rusacks Hotel.’
