  • 3 nights – Premier Inn Hotel, St Andrews – 3 star, twin room only
  • (dependent on whether you take the extended duration)

    Premier Inn will charge two breakfasts to a room regardless of whether or not you take it. In reality it might just be easier (and possibly less expensive) to present to the breakfast restaurant in the morning and pay cash.

The price does not include air-fares, evening meals, or additional hotel expenditure such as drinks or breakfast (unless specified) etc.

IMPORTANT – The price does not include any tickets for the 2021 Open Championship at this stage. We can add these if you choose to do so, but at the early stage of an enquiry we really don’t know which days you might want to go and watch, and which ticket type (level of access) you might choose (or combinations of ticket types). We would create a quite bewildering price list were we to try and present every option, so it is probably best that we address this as a separate ‘stand-alone’ item

The price does not include caddie hire, or any golf course equipment. Such arrangements usually involve paying on the day in local currency (cash for a caddie). We are happy to arrange this at no extra cost.

The price does not include the green fee for the St Andrews Old Course. The £195 green fee is paid locally when you’re successful in the draw). This could involve forfeiting the green fee for a course that was due to be played should we win the ballot on the same day. All courses will look to reschedule us. We would usually expect to be able to re-jig things in-situ but it will usually involve playing a double-day somewhere

Important Note, the St Andrews Old Course observe minimum handicap thresholds of 24 and 36.

The price does not include flexible hotel booking rates. Hotels charge an additional premium that permits you to cancel your reservations to a refund within a specified notice period. Should you seek this cover please notify us accordingly. It will likely cost in the region of an additional £225 for Luxury cover, and £125 for other covers

All tours and hotels sold subject to availability and final confirmation. Entrance fees to some of the neighbouring attractions will need to coincide with helpful tee times. In most cases no problems are anticipated, but should we need to, we’ll refund in cash




The tour has a fairly heavy loading towards golf, which does limit the amount of non-golf activity you would be able to partake in. Should you wish to weave non-golf activity into your programme then there will reach a point whereby it becomes economically sensible to consider adopting a self-drive solution. Faraway Fairways would make the following recommendations. Both Edinburgh and St Andrews are genuine visitor attractions in their own right. Consider a meal in Anstruther just outside of Crail. Crail itself is a picturesque little fishing harbour and can easily justify a visit.
