You and the Old Course will forever have a special
Jenny and I really don’t know what to say to thank you for what was in our opinion the absolute perfect and memorable wedding for us. You organisation, professionalism, calmness and attention to detail, even through my diva demands for wine to calm my nerves for the speeches, made the wedding meticulous. I cannot believe how much effort you put in going so far above what are could have expected went in to making this day one we will never forget. I have no hesitation in saying that we would not have wanted to change one thing. The guests at the wedding as still talking about it event you and the old course were able to deliver. The conservatory looked like something from a movie. The last few months have been so hard, and without you there would have been no wedding I have never dealt with someone who has gone to such much personal lengths to help, even giving us glasses for our first toast. It is as close as we have ever felt to being famous, as the wonderful staff at the old course could not have made us feel any more special and have been more attentive to us. The room was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I actually feel very sad that it is all over, and sad that we will not be dealing with you as you have been exceptional in your job and as a person. You and the Old course will forever have a special place in our heart. You have heard my public speaking so you are aware that I am not the most eloquent, I wish I could better words to describe just how special that day was to us and how much of a part of our wedding you really were. Mrs McGuckin and I cannot thank you enough.

The venue itself is stunning
We chose to have our meal in the Conservatory, where you are literally right on the golf course in breathtaking surroundings, followed by our reception in the Ballroom which oozes elegance and class. It is certainly a venue that doesn’t need much ‘dressing up’ in order to provide you with a gorgeous backdrop for your day. We were lucky enough to have a glorious sunny day, which allowed for our wedding photos to be taken on the beach and on the balcony beside the Road Hole Bar. We also managed to sneak in a sunset picture on the world famous Swilken Bridge! Choosing our menu was almost as fun as our wedding day, and chef even came out to meet us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. If you are a foodie and really looking for a quality meal on your big day, then this is place for you! All of our guests couldn’t compliment the food enough, and we managed to provide options that suited everyone. The service throughout was second to none, it really is 5 star. Living in the south of England, it was always going to be challenging to liaise and have our vision come to life. However after meeting Laura, she completely put our minds at ease. Every detail or request that we had, were brought to life and nothing was too big or too small. Laura even went above and beyond on the morning of our day by helping to iron creases out of my wedding dress! We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and it will forever hold a special place in our heart. We are forever grateful to all of the incredible staff for an incredible experience.

Everything was done to perfection
We had such a special wedding day thanks to Joelle and her amazing team. We wanted our day a bit different, nothing was a problem, everything was done to perfection. Beautiful room, lovely food and a warm friendly service throughout. The venue is stunning, a fantastic place to capture gorgeous photographs on the golf course and at the beach. We would highly recommend the Old Course as a special place to get married. We wish we could do it all over again!

Best day of our lives - simply stunning!
We got married at the Old Course Hotel in August 2019. We only had a small party so had the ceremony in the gorgeous conservatory. We then went up to the famous Road Hole bar for drinks before heading back to the conservatory for afternoon tea. The food was exceptional 👌 Laura (our wedding coordinator) was amazing - she looked after us and nothing was too much trouble. The venue is stunning and as my husband is a huge golf fan, we couldn’t have wished for anywhere better. We even had our photo taken on the famous Swilken bridge. Our whole day ran smoothly thanks to Laura and I just wish we could do it all over again. We visited St Andrews for our first wedding anniversary and so went to the Road Hole bar for a drink, whilst there the bar man came over with a glass of champagne for us on the house, lovely surprise. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Old Course for your perfect wedding. The venue is stunning, the golf course is stunning and we try and visit as often as we can. Absolutely perfect day ❤️
