The five-star Fairmont St Andrews has been named as Scotland's best golf resort and spa by the World Travel Awards. Beating off competition from a number of the world’s best golf courses – including Gleneagles, Turnberry and Cameron House – the Fairmont boasts two championship golf courses, the Torrance and Kittocks, and has played host to a number of prestigious events, including both the Open Championship's final local qualifying and the Scottish Senior Open.
“Over the years we have collected many awards but to receive one that recognises both the golf and spa sides of our operation is particularly special,” said Charles Head, general manager of Fairmont St Andrews. “I know everyone works very hard to maintain consistently high levels throughout the resort and things like this make it all-the-more worthwhile.”
With thousands of votes cast by travel professionals from 183,000 travel agencies in more than 160 countries globally, winning a World Travel Award has become one of the highest accolades a travel product can receive.
