We’ve all seen them, lining up their putts on the bedroom rug, practicing their swings on the Wii. Golf fanatics become a restive bunch over winter, when the greens are iced over and the fairways clogged with snowdrifts.
Today’s Big Deal offers them something to look forward to, something that will stir the sinews of anyone who has ever taken an interest in Scotland’s ancient game.
Courtesy of the Golf Club, online specialists in affordable golf memberships, this Big Deal offers a year’s golf membership, with a choice of five or ten rounds, in the home of golf. Yes, St. Andrews. That home of golf.
That dream of hitting the perfect eight-iron approach into the green with a dramatic backdrop of the sea and Fife sky can now be a reality. Well it can if you would just keep your head still and don’t snatch at your shot…

The Big Deal option one comprises a year’s golf membership at St. Andrews, with five rounds of golf at the Fairmont St. Andrews Torrance and Kittocks Courses.
The Big Deal option two comprises a year’s golf membership at St. Andrews, with ten rounds of golf at the Fairmont St. Andrews Torrance and Kittocks Courses.
Both membership options also offer free use of practice facilities, access to Open Days and a bag tag.
The Big Deal allows golfers to choose between two superb courses, offering an ideal opportunity for novices to improve their game through repetition, and for experienced players to face some new challenges.
The par 72 Torrance course was masterminded by Scottish pro Sam Torrance, with a graceful links design. It’s a walking only course that has been used in qualifying for the Open.
The par 71 Kittocks Course clings to the scenic Fife coastline, offering beautiful vistas from the tee, so at least you can admire the scenery if you happen to hook your drive into the rough. Golf carts are available for hire on this course.
Your membership gives you access to the members’ log-in area on the Golf Club site at www.thegc.co.uk which allows you to keep track of your bookings and follow the improvement in your game over the course of the year.
For the golf aficionado in your family, today’s Big Deal of a golf membership in St. Andrews would be the perfect gift, allowing them to look forward to testing their game on challenging and scenic coastal courses in golf’s HQ.
It’s the ideal way to introduce a keen golfer to the rich sporting heritage and atmosphere of golfing in St. Andrews. Their gratitude will be lasting. Just be prepared to suffer endless stories of the putts that lipped out, the pitches that spun off the green or the occasional glorious 20-footer that dropped sweetly into the cup.
