Old Course Hotel shows off its recently renovated event spaces and proves itself to be a truly adaptable venue with more to it than meets the eye.
Overlooking the beautiful town of St Andrews, as well as the North Sea, Old Course Hotel has a lot to offer event organisers. From a team of dedicated chefs ready to rise to any challenge set before them, to a world- famous golf course, and a range of extravagant and versatile event spaces. Old Course Hotel is adaptable and has the perfect spaces for every event.
Hall of Champions
Since its refurbishment in Spring last year the crown jewel of Old Course Hotel’s event spaces, the Hall of Champions, has been wowing visitors with its opulent surroundings and massive floor space. Capable of holding as many as 480 delegates, the hall is decked out with gold detailing, Scottish thistles, and mirrored walls. The refurbishment opened-up natural light, and for evening events the ceiling is hung with eye-catching chandeliers aplenty. It can be broken down into six smaller spaces and is popular for gala dinners and has even seen brand new BMWs driven through its doors to display at past events.
A feat only capable because of the hall’s grand private entrance, covered to protect delegates from the unpredictable Scottish weather.
A fresh air filtration system helps make events COVID-safe, and a hearing loop is available with several outlets dotted around the room for hearing-impaired delegates to listen at. The space also holds built-in screens and projectors which can be cast to wirelessly rather than having to hardwire, and adjustable lighting to make the prefect atmosphere for your event.
An extremely elegant space, The Ballroom is situated on the ground floor near the main hotel entrance. Its light, modern decor is accented by the stunning crystal chandeliers. The space benefits from a its own foyer which can be used for coffee breaks or a bar.
Old Course Hotel has also seen its conservatory extended, ideal for a drinks reception or a product launch, the draw of the conservatory is the stunning view that can be seen beyond its confines. Able to hold 190 delegates for a wedding ceremony or 70 for dining, the conservatory features an ornate chandelier as a focal point and sits overlooking the famous golf course the hotel is named for as well as the beautiful town of St. Andrews.
Located on the top floor of the hotel, The Boardroom offers breath-taking views over the sea and beach, which film buffs will recognise from the beginning of the popular film Chariots of Fire. Elegant and formal in style, The Boardroom includes an adjoining anteroom. Able to seat 16 delegates around the table, as well as the traditional board meetings, this space is perfect for whisky, gin, and chocolate tastings, and makes an intimate setting for small receptions.
The Captain’s Room
If you’re looking for something outside of the traditional office space, then The Captain’s Room makes a lovely location for board meetings, brain-storming, and corporate away days. There is also a green field site available which is perfect for those looking to do some team building out in the open air. Located in The Duke’s Clubhouse, it can hold between 12 and 20 people.
This ornated, oak-adorned meeting room can hold up to 40 delegates and sits at the back of the Hams Hame pub, opposite the 18th hole of the Old Course and is a great area for giving committee meetings, small dinners, and private parties a more casual feel.
