‘Hit and hope’ is the motto of the Big Deal golf team. Which may explain why we play off a triple figure handicap.
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 February 2015, this offer would be great for a pre-Christmas getaway or it would make a lovely Christmas present.
Stripping the tree of tinsel is never so bad when a luxurious mini-break is on the horizon.
Dinner, bed and breakfast
Available seven days a week, option one of this offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight 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 essentials such as WiFi.
As well as a full cooked breakfast, the offer includes a three course dinner for each guest in One Under, the hotel’s friendly gastropub. Some dishes will be charged a supplement.
Option two, also available seven days a week, is for two people to spend two consecutive nights in a double or twin room at the Macdonald Rusacks Hotel with dinner in One Under on the first night.
If guests would prefer to dine in Rocco Grill, the hotel’s three AA Rosette restaurant, they will have a £20 per person spend.
There may be availability to upgrade to a king double or executive room for £30 and £60 respectively.
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:
‘Golfers’ paradise. Lovely suite was comfortable and cosy. Food in Rocco was excellent as was service. The view of the Old Course at breakfast was amazing. Definitely will return soon. St Andrews ticks all the boxes for a relaxing break.’
‘Macdonald Rusacks hotel is in a prime location, having breakfast overlooking the Old Course a highlight. Rooms are superb, modern and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful, we would certainly stay here again.’
