Wedding of our dreams at the Old Course Hotel

St. Andrews has always been a special place for us and when we got engaged, it was the first place I thought of for our wedding. We moved to Sydney three years ago and whilst I was a bit vary of a 'hotel wedding', it seemed like the most sensible option for us as we would be planning remotely.
Well, the Old Course Hotel dispelled any myths about 'hotel weddings' that I had! The venue itself is obviously spectacular, but it still manages to surpass it's reputation. The views, the hotel facilities, and most importantly the hotel staff were outstanding.
We got married in the Conservatory that overlooks the 17th fairway. We couldn't believe our luck because the sun was shining without a cloud in the sky on a crisp October day. We had around 155 guests and I believe capacity is around 165 for this space - it felt full but not cramped. Jess and Tara (our amazing Wedding Coordinator and Wedding Operations Manager) took care of everything from set up, music etc - I didn't have to worry about a thing.
We then had our drinks reception in the Green Sheds where we had a two piece band for around two hours. We went off to town to get some pictures (thanks to Laura in the Concierge team who drove us around!), came back to get some pictures and then it was time for the wedding breakfast in the Hall of Champions. The food was fantastic - we were able to offer our guests three choices for each course and gave that back to the hotel around three weeks before. I would really recommend doing this - I'm happy we were able to offer a good choice. We then had a ceilidh and danced the night away!
I simply couldn't have asked for a better day. It was filled with joy and happiness in the most incredible setting. One of the highlights was our wedding coordinator Jess - it's difficult to put into words. She completely changed my experience from being a nervous, anxious, worried bride who was too scared to think about her wedding into a relaxed, excited, happy bride and I can't thank her enough. A true gem!

Magical wedding at the Old Course Hotel

My husband and I were married at the Old Course a week ago and had the absolute best day, which was mostly down to the kindness, support, professionalism and hard work of the team at the hotel. We had both our ceremony and reception in the hotel, as well as our wedding breakfast. The whole day went so smoothly and we cannot express how impressed we were with everything. The staff thought of every small detail and we could totally relax on the day. Jess was our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. She helped us with all the details in the months leading up to the big day and was always so organised and cheerful. She made wedmin a real pleasure. The hotel also pulls out all the stops with staff on the day - shout outs to Tara and Jack for all their amazing help as well. Many of our guests said how incredible the service was on the day. We could not recommend the Old Course as a venue any more highly. They made the wedding the most special and relaxing day. Thank you!!!

The Best Day

Laura , Tara and co are absolutely fantastic! I’m definitely a control freak when it comes to events and they made me feel at complete ease with their professionalism and attention to detail.

Our day was perfect and seem less from start to finish thanks to the amazing staff.

We really couldn’t have picked a better venue!

First Class Venue & Service

We had our wedding at the Old Course in August 2022 and can’t recommend it highly enough. Kayleigh, Laura and the team were absolutely superb and no request was too small or too much hassle from the minute we came to view the hotel right up until the day itself. The food was outstanding and the spaces for the various parts of our day were all spacious and just perfect for the number of guests we had and how we wanted our day to be. We would have our wedding here 100 times over thanks to the fantastic level of care and attention to detail from all the team - so many of our guests have commented it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever attended!

The very best people in the most beautiful place.

I knew planning a wedding from abroad would pose it's natural challenges, however, what I could not foresee is how seamless and lovely of an experience the Old Course staff would make this. Whether you are traveling near or far, the entire team at the Old Course will go above and beyond to ensure every detail is met - even the ones you don't think of yourself. I cannot express the full extent of my gratitude in words, they are simply the very best.

Best day ever! Everything exactly how we wanted - day ran like clockwork

Thank you so much to Lucy and team our day was absolutely incredible! The full day ran so smoothly - the food and service were out of this world. Special mention to Tara the catering manger who just went above and beyond during the evening. I’m so sad it’s over the staff at the old course are honestly like your family.

Bride May 2022

We would recommend the Old Course a million times over. I don’t even know where to start with writing this review as our whole day was perfect. From the moment we arrived the day before we felt like VIPs and nothing was too much trouble. Laura and Lucy made planning this wedding as stress free as possible and on the day Lucy made sure everything went off without a hitch, if anything wasn’t going to plan I certainly never knew about it. We did a choice menu for 112 people and everyone since has commented on how good the food was! We had to make some adjustments last minute (aka on the day!) with COVID drop outs and this was no problem at all. All the guests commented that at the reception there was plenty of food and alcohol circulating. I could go on forever about how good our experience was with TOC and we will be grateful forever to the whole team there and especially the wedding team for giving us the perfect day.

The perfect venue for our intimate family wedding. Stunning setting, outstanding service, gorgeous food. The support during the planning process was amazing - we live 100s of miles away from St. Andrews but the communication and planning meetings were frequent and at convenient times. The day itself was flawless, with all staff doing the hotel justice.

Wonderful wedding x

Lucy was our first point of contact and was friendly , approachable , the consummate professional and incredibly resourceful when covid caused various changes to be made last minute! She has an incredible local knowledge of suppliers and a personal relationship with so many local businesses from flowers to hair to nails to restaurants etc … she is clearly highly regarded not only within the Old Course Hotel environment but also within the town of St Andrews itself .

You will not be disappointed - absolute amazing, would recommend the OCH to anyone!

We are so grateful to The Old Course Hotel and especially to Lucy & Laura who were both absolute superstars from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble, they made sure all the little touches were covered. Always on the end of the phone or e-mail to discuss any matters however big or small. With all the changes with Lockdowns and Covid, they have been so accommodating. They provided a list of fantastic suppliers we used who were all very helpful. The setting was so perfect, the views onto the course were amazing, the food was unbelievably brilliant. Whether you are a golfer or not, you will not be disappointed with the Old Course Hotel. All staff at the venue were exceptional.
We really can't thank them enough for all that they have done. Thank you so much. 5+ star rating from us! *****

Where to start?! The Old Course as a venue speaks for itself; a spectacular 5* hotel in the most idyllic setting of St Andrews, overlooking the most famous golf course in the world. However, that aside, the service experience we received throughout our entire wedding journey, from the initial enquiry to the day itself was nothing short of exceptional.

Our wedding coordinator was Laura, and admittedly she was the reason we ultimately booked. Her passion and love for weddings, her attention to detail, her clear pride in her venue and her ability to make you as a couple feel like the most important people ever was evident from the offset. No request was too much and she was very much a part of our entire journey.

Our wedding itself was better than we could ever have imagined. Arriving the day before, morning preparations, the ceremony, meal and evening reception - it was just perfect. All the staff were exceptionally polite and the day went without a hitch (and if anything did go wrong or not to plan, my husband and I weren't aware!) The food was incredible and we have received such wonderful comments from all our guests about how phenomenal our day was.

We honestly cannot recommend The Old Course Hotel as a venue enough.

The day of our dreams!

Laura and the team at The Old Course Hotel are simply amazing! We cannot thank them enough for going above and beyond to make our day so perfect. The venue, service, food & wine were all incredible and we will never forget all the special touches during our wedding weekend. The team helped to ensure that our day went so smoothly and made the whole planning process so easy.

A very special mention has to go to Laura. Due to restrictions we had to change our wedding date from 2020 to 2021 and Laura made this change so easy to do and helped to put our minds at ease. She was always at the end of the phone or on emails to answer my daft questions or to calm me down if I was stressed! Nothing was too much hassle for her and we honestly feel like we have a friend for life in her now. I'm going to miss speaking to her on a regular basis! She really is an absolute credit to the OCH team!

Thank you again to everyone at the OCH. Our wedding day was everything we could have wished for and more. I just wish we could do it all again :)

Out of this world!

The team were absolutely outstanding. I honestly couldn’t fault them at all. Our wedding date was changed three times during the pandemic and this was done with such ease! I was lucky enough to have both Lucy & Laura to support me throughout the planning journey. Our wedding was a micro wedding due to the pandemic however this didn’t change the level of service or support that we received. No task or request was out of the question. They delivered a most magical day for us and one we will treasure forever.
The Old Course really have got a brilliant team on their hands and they are extremely fortunate and should be so proud. We are only one of their customers and if the service we had is anything to go by they will no doubt have a raft of Other wonderful reviews.
On the day of the wedding itself everything was smooth, the venue and setting beautiful, the food was exceptional, drink was flowing and the craic/fun was a plenty! The support staff throughout the hotel on the day were nothing short of brilliant too.
Thank you so very much I’d recommend them in a heartbeat.

From start to finish, Lucy & Laura were just a delight. Not only did they turn around our wedding with 4 weeks’ notice but made everything so simple and stress free. Nothing was too much hassle. The setting, food and service were spectacular. We will forever cherish the memories made at the Old Course Hotel on our special day.
