Golfers are being invited to take part in a new season-opening tournament being staged by Kingsbarns Golf Links and the Old Course Hotel Golf Resort and Spa in St Andrews.
The inaugural Belhaven Best Spring Cup will get the 2012 season off to a flying start when it takes place from Thursday, March 29 to Saturday, March 31 2012. The event is supported by Scotland's premium beer producer The Belhaven Brewery.
There are still places left for the 54-hole tournament which comprises two rounds on Kingsbarns, recently ranked No 1 in a best modern courses poll by Golfweek magazine in the US, coupled with the beautiful Duke’s Course near St Andrews, ranked in the Golf Monthly top 100.
Competitors will also enjoy three nights’ luxury dining and accommodation at the five red star Old Course Hotel.
Competing in teams of four in a better-ball Stableford format, the tournament’s first and final rounds will be at the modern links of Kingsbarns with the middle round at the heathland lay-out of the Duke’s.
As well as outstanding golf, the Belhaven Best Spring Cup will be as much about socialising and a wonderful culinary experience. The competitors will enjoy some of the finest cuisine that St Andrews has to offer.
The lunches will be served in the welcoming clubhouses at Kingsbarns and the Duke’s. In the evenings they will have the opportunity to sample dinner in the relaxed and cosy atmosphere of the Jigger Inn, the stylish Sands Grill at the Old Course Hotel and then an awards dinner at the 3 AA Rosette Road Hole Restaurant on the top floor of the hotel overlooking the world famous Old Course.
Alan Hogg, the Chief Executive of Kingsbarns Golf Links, said, “Kingsbarns is entering its 12th season this year and the Belhaven Spring Cup will be a wonderful way to celebrate this milestone. We are delighted to be working with the Old Course Hotel to offer golfers a combination of world class golfing and dining.
"This is an excellent way for golfers to start their season off in style here in St Andrews and I would urge them to take the opportunity to play in the first ever staging of this event.”
