  "Suite Golf" offered by the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa has just got even sweeter with the news that Kingsbarns Links has been added to the package which already includes a highly sought-after guaranteed tee time over the hallowed Old Course.

On offer from the start of 2012, the three-night package also features a round over the Kohler-owned Duke's Course with buggy hire and a fourth round over either the New or Jubilee Course, both Links Trust St Andrews courses.

After indulging their passion for the game, golfers can retire to the iconic Old Course Hotel, which overlooks the famous 17 th Road Hole, and relax in a luxury suite and enjoy a 50-minute luxury spa treatment in the Kohler Waters Spa.

The Suite Golf package also includes two dinners; one in the Road Hole Restaurant, the Hotel's award-winning restaurant that boasts three AA rosettes, and one in the more relaxed Sands Grill whilst a full Scottish breakfast is served on a daily basis.

"St Andrews is known as the Home of Golf and the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa is without doubt the very best place to base yourself for a few days of golf. You will be guaranteed excellent service and luxurious accommodation, located right on the Old Course itself which will ensure a truly memorable experience," says David Scott, Manager of The Duke's St Andrews.

"Not only that, but anyone taking up a Suite Golf package will not be at the mercy of the ballot for a tee time over the Old Course as this is guaranteed. This is a real bonus, particularly as it is every golfer's dream to play a round over a course that is considered to be at the heart of the game of golf."

The R&A recently confirmed that The Open Championship would return to St Andrews and the Old Course for the 29 th time in 2015, enhancing the caché of playing this iconic course even further. But with tee times only available from M ay to August, early booking is essential.

In addition to playing golf, visitors can also sample the unique atmosphere and historical coastal setting of St Andrews by visiting the historical buildings of St Andrews Castle, the Cathedral ruins and the University of St Andrews, the most ancient in Scotland.  Around St Andrews there are also many picturesque fishing villages, such as East Neuk, Crail and Anstruther, to explore as well as numerous country parks and nature trails.
