So Bob is already 23 over par and his caddie coughs just as he slices his drive on the 18th.
Bob loses it.
‘You’ve got to be the worst caddie in the world,’ he screams.
‘Seems unlikely,’ replies the caddie. ‘That would be far too much of a coincidence.’
There’s one you can wheel out when sitting in the bar of The Golf Inn in St Andrews.
Sitting pretty at No.1 Golf Place, The Golf Inn is just a pitch and a putt from the 18th green of the world famous Old Course.
The four storey property has six quirky bedrooms, a brasserie and bar plus a roof terrace which comes into its own on a crisp and sunny winter day.
Enjoy it all with today’s Big Deal on a one or two night stay at The Golf Inn.
Valid from 3rd January until 29th February 2020, it would be perfect for a post-Christmas getaway.

See & do
We don’t need to spell out why St Andrews is the home of golf.
However, it’s not the only attraction in St Andrews. The town’s aquarium, castle and cathedral are all worth exploring. Or you could simply enjoy a hand-in-hand stroll along West Sands Beach.
The latter is the ideal prep for a hot chocolate or cockle-warming whisky on the roof terrace.
The Golf Inn has plenty of admirers on TripAdvisor. We have edited these recent reviews for length:
‘We stayed at the Golf Inn for 1 night during our 10 night tour of Scotland. We knew we wanted to be in the centre of St. Andrews and within walking distance to the sites, bars and shopping. The Golf Inn was the perfect spot for experiencing all that St. Andrews has to offer. From our room on the third floor we had views of the sea and the Old Course, we loved the room! Staff was very friendly and we ate dinner in the on site pub as well as breakfast… We were able to easily walk to the castle, cathedral, old course, shopping etc without moving our car.’
‘Stayed here for one night. Pleasant room and bathroom. Friendly service. Good breakfast alternatives – full Scottish breakfast or veggie breakfast. Fantastic location – down the street from the Old Course.’
Location, location, location
As the TripAdvisor reviews underline, The Golf Inn is in a fantastic location for enjoying all that St Andrews has to offer.
