Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 bath luxury home within walking distance to the Old Course

St. Andrews Golf House (SAGH) is unlike any other luxury accommodation within the "Auld Grey Toon". Custom designed and built to the very highest standards, St. Andrews Golf House is a true 5-star Vacation Destination, offering guests the perfect home base for their next Scottish Holiday. Beautifully appointed with elegant contemporary pieces that offer a nod to Scottish tradition as well as classic antique furnishings, the house is beautiful, cozy and above all comfortable. Once you sink into one of our down-filled leather chairs, single malt in hand and golf on the 50-inch HD “telly”, you’ll not want to get up. The circa 1890 Scottish oak dining table seats eight comfortably, so there is no need to go out every night for dinner - stay in, cook and enjoy each others company in this very special home. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen is perfect for social cooking and entertaining. Featuring state-of-the-art amenities to include custom appliances, 40-bottle wine refrigerator, ice-maker, 6-burner gas range, French country sink, granite counter-tops and seating for four, affording a social setting, while partaking in the joy of cooking. Built with the American golfer in mind, the house features four bedrooms that can be configured as a super king for couples or as a twin bedroom for a guys golf trip - truly the perfect base camp for your next Scottish vacation.

Reminisce about the day’s round while enjoying a cigar and a scotch in our cedar roofed “Cigar Pavilion”. This hand-built, eight-seat heated pavilion provides the perfect space to enjoy the long sunlit nights, which are a staple of Scotland’s summers. Situated in the garden, the pavilion overlooks a three-hole links inspired putting green, which was designed and built by renowned greens keeper, Andy Campbell - former superintendent at Ireland’s famed Loch Erne Golf Club. Additionally, we’ve placed an American style barbeque grill near by so grill up some steaks and enjoy this incredible outdoor space.

Notes:
St. Andrews and East Fife offer much for the visitor: history, castles, fabulous museums, a world renowned university, secret cold war bunkers, and of course world famous golf. Golf has been played at St Andrews for 600 years. In 1552 Archbishop Hamilton’s Charter recognized the right of the people of St Andrews to play golf at The Links. And play they do, each year more than 230,000 rounds are played over St Andrews seven public courses -- making it truly golf's greatest destination. All these courses are within walking distance of St Andrews Golf House. Don’t feel like cooking, let us bring in a chef to prepare the perfect meal for you and your guests. We are also happy to answer questions or set up golf for you.

Great, modern house with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. the house is modern, with everything you could want. Andy Campbell, the local on the ground manager was great, and helped organize anything we wanted. Highly recommended for golf trips with the guys, or couples.

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

The entire house was exactly as described and perfect for our golf trip to St. Andrew's. The location was ideal, quiet at night and an easy walk to downtown and the Old Course. We were met at the house by Andy Campbell (house manager and golf consultant), who was more than helpful with golf, restaurant, and pub recommendations. Andy helped us with the Old Course ballot and even showed up at the first tee to wish us luck as we teed off on the Old Course! All in all, a fantastic stay and I would highly recommend this house to anyone wishing to enjoy all that St. Andrews has to offer

Perfect for a golf trip in St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to get a tee time at St. Andrews in May, 2017 when few of my golf buddies and I turned 50. I immediately started looking for a 4 bedroom place all of us could stay (we ended up with 8 people total). I looked at AirBnB and VRBO. While there were quite a few places that ranged in price, this one seemed the best fit for us. It looked modern and comfy at the same time with the amenities we were interested in - (Laundry facilities and a heated cabana for smoking stogies and drinking scotch!)

Since we are all golf buddies, we all wanted our own separate beds. The beds in ea room can be joined to make a king or separated into 2 twins. Perfect. The rooms are small but we only slept there so this was no issue for us.

It was walking distance from Market St (the street where you will spend time lots of time eating/drinking) and even the Old Course.

Iain Lowe was our acting host while we were there and he was as kind, and gracious a host as one could ask for. A true gentleman! He even signed my book (Iain is a prolific photographer and I happened to have one of his books)

Our only hiccup was the tankless water heater seemed to turn off after 6 of us showered in the evening. Turns out, there was a shut off timer that Iain forgot to turn off (it turned off at 10 PM). One email, and it was remedied the next morning.

All in all, if I ever travel back to St Andrews with 8 people, this is where I'm staying.

St Andrews Golf

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house, wonderfully furnished and well appointed. We walked everywhere in St Andrews. Great pubs and of course we came for the golf, which was outstanding. Andy was a great host and went out of his way to ensure we were well taken care of and he provided a great amount of information and history of St Andrews and the must visit locations in town. Thanks Andy!

Top shelf rental property that feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in a quiet Edinburgh neighborhood just a 5 minute walk to shops and places to dine. The house is relatively new and nicely decorated. We stayed as 4 male golfers and it was plenty of room for us.

Would highly recommend!

Exceeded Every Expectation

  • 5 of 5

Our party of five stayed here six nights in July. Executive summary -- the best experience I've ever had with HomeAway/VRBO, and my group couldn't have been more pleased.

The home itself is lovely, spacious, full of modern conveniences (extending to a well-equipped kitchen), spotlessly clean, and a 15 minute walk (allowing for carrying a golf bag) from the Old Course first tee. Walking a similar distance away from town you'll find an Aldi for groceries, or a Marks & Spencer for take-away prepared foods. A ten minute walk will have you in the area of St. Andrews with the best pubs and restaurants.

The photos are accurate and not at all misleading. Bedrooms spacious; beds can be arranged as either two singles or one king-sized. Tastes vary, but I found the bed quite conducive to a good night of sleep. (In fairness, walking 36 holes and sampling a variety of single malts every day were contributing factors.) Bathrooms are the antithesis of what you’d expect in most UK rental homes – large, clean, and easy to figure out for American tourists who often don’t understand why anything in the world is a departure from what they're accustomed to.

I agree with an earlier reviewer that the separate golf club storage room was a blessing.

Owners/managers of rental homes will often provide a small welcome basket of snacks, perhaps with a bottle of wine -- a nice gesture that is always appreciated. The manager of this property, Andy, has now set the bar impossibly high for competitors. I won't go into detail about how well-stocked with food the kitchen was upon arrival, but everyone in my group was amazed.

Andy was easy to contact and flexible in arranging a time to let us in on our arrival day. When we did meet him, he gave us a comprehensive tour of the home and clear instructions. My only suggestion would be to commit a bit more of the information to paper that he conveyed to us on arrival, both to save him the effort of repeating himself and to save his guests the embarrassment of exposing their frequent memory lapses (speaking only for myself here).

Andy went beyond the role of property manager in several ways. He was also a convivial host, a tour guide, a concierge, and an all-around great chap. I've mentioned to the owners that – as wonderful a property as it is – the best asset is Andy.

If you think this property might suit your needs, don't hesitate to book it. You'll congratulate yourself later on your wise decision.
