Luxury Kids Programme

Sample Summer Itinerary

On arrival, enjoy a customised children’s check-in, and receive a welcome pack with pens and colouring books. Then discover a host of treats in your bedroom, including a welcome gift and Old Course Teddy Bear (which you can take home), a toy box crammed with toys, games and books to suit your age, robes and slippers, a massaging cot and complete bath set for baby.

Discover the magic of the Old Course Hotel and meet the staff with the “Quiz,” a customised treasure hunt inviting you to explore every nook and cranny. Investigate the plush corridors, chat to the kilted doorman, and visit the shops in the hotel to find the answers and win a prize.

While Mummy checks into Kohler Waters Spa, it’s time to enjoy the children’s splash time with Daddy in the hotel’s 20-metre swimming pool.

Next, grab a bucket and spade and head down to West Sands Beach, located just in front of the hotel. Kites are also available from the Concierge Desk.

Head back to the hotel to find some children’s VIP amenities in the room: “dunking donuts” made by the pastry chef and Scottish strawberries from the local farm– complete with chocolate and vanilla dipping sauce.

Now it’s time for dinner in Sands Grill. Don’t forget to take your welcome pack – the colouring book and pens will come in handy. Choose a freshly prepared dish from the children’s menu. There’s also complimentary food and a highchair for baby and a mocktail on arrival for the teenagers.

Back up to the bedroom with full tummies. Baby’s cot and your little beds have been turned down, and the teddies are tucked in. With all that fresh air, exercise and good food, you’ll enjoy a full night’s sleep.

The following morning it’s time to get up and start the adventure all over again with a hearty breakfast in Sands Grill, followed by a professional golf lesson at The Duke’s. Afterwards you’ll explore St Andrews: Sea Life Centre/St Andrews Aquarium, the Himalayas Putting Green, the Botanic Gardens, Craigtoun Country Park, and East Sands Leisure Centre. And if that’s not enough, there’s so much to do in the surrounding area including spotting seals from the sand dunes at Tentsmuir, visiting the Scottish Deer Centre near Cupar, going on a family trail at the Hill of Tarvit, and horse riding at Kilconquhar Castle.
