    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.

    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 .

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Thank you so much for your review, it means the world to us and the photos you have shared are simply stunning!

    Lucy and the team were so pleased to play a a small part in your special day.

    We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

    Laura, Lucy and Team xx

    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! *****

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Stacey and David, congratulations once again! Thank you so much for your lovely words, it was an absolute pleasure working with you on your special day. Hopefully we will see you both very soon,

    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 :)

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Mr and Mrs Strachan - you most definitely have a friend for life!!

    Your review and comments mean so much to me and the wider OCH team, your wedding was the first one we hosted where guests were allowed to dance! You and your guests made it one to remember, everyone was just so full of joy and all smiles.

    Please don't be strangers and I look forward to seeing you both back at the Old Course Hotel!

    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.

    Perfection

    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.

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Emma and James - congratulations again!

    We were absolutely delighted to have played a part in your special day and what an amazing day it was!!

    We will hopefully see both again soon here at the Old Course!

    The Perfect Venue

    The Hotel were amazing from start to finish! Nothing was to much to ask for the team. We have had so much positive feedback from guests about the food and the service from all of the staff at the hotel. The team went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we wanted and more. I would highly recommend The Old Course Hotel as a dream wedding venue! All of the team are approachable and friendly. The Hotel itself is simply stunning and has so many places for photographs! Our guests loved it and so did we! 10/10 for everything.

    Wedding 22.5.21

    The entire team at the Old Course Hotel are absolutely wonderful but a special mention needs to be given to Laura Russell who went above and beyond to help us plan our wedding and make our day so perfect. She is one of the loveliest people you will ever meet and just fantastic at her job! Despite covid 19, we had the most incredible day!! Everything was exceptional- from the venue itself, the food, wine, service and to all the staff helping on the day- they were simply brilliant and so professional. They made the whole experience of planning a wedding completely stress free as they took care of everything for us, every tiny detail was important to them and I felt they were truly invested in making our day so brilliant. We didn't want to leave the hotel and sincerely wish we could do it all again with them! Perhaps a vow renewal there will be needed in a few years! : )

    Thank you again so much to all the team,

    Dr Jenny and Alex Glover

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Jenny and Alex, thank you so much for your kind words!

    What can we say?!? First wedding of 2021 and first wedding after re-opening - your wedding will be one that Team OCH will remember with massive smiles on our faces.

    Don't be strangers - you will always be guaranteed a warm welcome at the Old Course Hotel!

    Perfect intimate wedding and celebration

    We simply can not give a high enough recommendation for a wedding at St Andrews Old Course Hotel. Our intimate wedding (of just 16) in February was a great weekend, and from arrival on Saturday morning through the wedding on Sunday, we had the full support from the excellent staff. The events were seamless for the celebration, and all to the plan we had discussed with the team.
    Having the family at the hotel for the weekend was the perfect choice, and with the stunning backdrop of one of our favourite places to visit (St Andrews town and historic Old Course) a perfect package. We have been at The Old Course Hotel previously on many occasions, including New Year celebrations, so it was a known quantity for my ‘wife’ and I for luxury, quality and simply a friendly place to be.
    We had full use of the Library for the vows, and Board room for the Wedding Breakfast. All were planned and prepared with great support from Joelle, including ideas to make the rooms look and feel like a wedding venue. The Board room essentially became our own ‘Fine Dining’ venue and a place to be together throughout the evening. The food was excellent and high recommendation for the drinks and canopies on the wedding menu.
    One additional note, we had a relative fall taking a walk in the town during the hours leading up to the wedding event. Alison from Guest Relations took a hotel car, and drove our relative to receive medical attention. What a massive above and beyond this was, and made sure our day could progress and could be everything we dreamt of.

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Thank you so much for your very kind review. We are so glad that you had a memorable wedding day and that Alison ensured your relative was okay. We hope to see you again soon at the Old Course Hotel!

    Wedding Reception

    The Old Course provided an excellent service for our wedding reception; it was truly first class and all the staff were lovely and a delight to have serving us. A special thanks to Lucy for all her wonderful organising!

    Dear Eve and Hector

    Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback, we are delighted that you had a first class wedding! I know Lucy had a wonderful time helping you with your plans.

    Hopefully we will see you both in St Andrews again soon.

    The most amazing venue for a wedding

    We are home from our wedding following the most amazing time at the old course hotel. Due to my husband’s love of golf and having stayed at the old course hotel a couple of times prior, it was our dream wedding venue. We secured the date after meeting with Lucy Dunn and viewing the amazing wedding spaces available. I loved that we had options between the conservatory, green sheds and ballroom and that we were lucky enough due to availability on the day, to be able to utilise all 3 spaces for our wedding.

    Lucy and the team could not have been more helpful and supportive during the planning stage, build up, and on the actual day. Our guests have been so complimentary of Lucy and Tara who were our point of contacts on the day and ensured everything ran perfectly.

    I just can’t express enough how impressed we all were with the venue, food, service and overall experience. Our dream came true and we will cherish the memories for our lifetime.

    We can’t wait to return to the old course hotel for our first wedding anniversary, and I am sure many more times in the future.

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Thank you so much Gemma and Josh for your fabulous words, we are really lucky to have both Lucy and Tara on the team and delighted that you had a wedding day to remember.

    We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to the Old Course Hotel.

    Aimee & Grant Santi

    From the first moment we met Lucy and the team at the Old Course Hotel we recognised that the hotel did things differently from other venues that we’d been to see. The wedding planning and coordination service offered by the hotel is genuinely client centred and offered us so much flexibility to create the day we wanted. We were not restricted by the venue in any way which was something we’d encountered in most of the other venues we went to see. The hotel is made to feel like your home for the duration of your event and we were able to pick different spaces to host drinks receptions, wedding breakfast etc and these could be decorated largely to our own tastes. The spaces at the hotel have recently undergone renovation and are both luxurious and spotless. The choice of food and drink on offer at the hotel was far superior and more diverse to that in other venues. Special touches like the complimentary menu tasting and wedding planning meetings also make a big difference. Our wedding coordinator, Lucy, was on hand throughout the process and was so patient and helpful. She thought of everything and on the day was essentially like another bridesmaid! I would not hesitate to recommend the Old Course Hotel to anyone thinking of getting married in Fife.

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Dear Aimee and Grant

    Thank you so much for your kind review, we are absolutely delighted that you and your families had a wonderful time celebrating your wedding with us.

    Lucy is one of our stars here at the Old Course and we're over the moon that you feel the same way. I know she can't wait to see your photos once you get them back.

    We look forward to seeing you again soon hopefully.

    With love and best wishes for the future.

    The Old Course Hotel

    My husband and I got married at the Old Course in December 2021 and we could not fault the service, the staff or anything about the venue. Staff were always prepared to help and went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We previously had an awful experience with another venue due to Covid and this was a complete breath of fresh air to plan. Lucy was our wedding coordinator and was fantastic from start to finish. Would not hesitate to recommend.

    The Old Course Hotel's reply:

    Aaaw thank you so much for your kind review! We are so glad that you had a fantastic day and Lucy looked after you - she is a real treasure! We will hopefully see you back at the Old Course soon.
