The Duke’s, St Andrews is offering some great rates on tee times to anyone visiting St Andrews during tournament week of The Open Championship from July 12 to 18 inclusive.
After watching some of the world’s greatest golfers in action on the Old Course, The Duke’s is inviting golfers to play a round of golf over its championship heathland course with a golf buggy and rental clubs thrown in for just £150.
A nine-hole twilight rate – again with buggy and rental clubs included - from 5 pm is also available over The Duke’s, priced at only £75.
“For anyone hosting potential clients or current customers at The Open Championship, a round of golf over The Duke’s is a fantastic way of complementing the corporate hospitality on offer by Sodexho at the tournament,” comments David Scott, Manager The Duke’s & Estates Landscapes.
“In particular, we expect the twilight package to be extremely popular as the light, balmy evenings together with the long shadows over the course make it a spectacular time to play golf.”
Originally designed by five-time Open champion Peter Thomson, The Duke’s was renovated by American Tim Liddy, who has worked with distinguished golf course designer Pete Dye for the past 18 years. Liddy transformed the course in June 2006 into a majestic heathland course reminiscent of the true heathland courses of the 1950s.
With five different tees on each hole, The Duke’s is suitable for players of every level and offers spectacular views over the Auld Grey Toon of St Andrews and the Grampians in the distance.
After golf, players will be assured of a warm welcome by the clubhouse staff that prides itself in its friendliness and high levels of service.
The Duke’s St Andrews was recently honoured to win the best Golf Club in the UK at the inaugural “Golf Club of the Year Awards” for 2010. In addition to securing the overall title, The Duke’s also secured Awards for the “Best Club for Members” in the UK and the “Best Club in Scotland” in the regional Scottish Awards.
