Our Wedding
We wanted to share our recent experience of hosting our wedding. We got married on 5th August and can honestly say from start to finish everything ran so smoothly. From the speedy communication from Laura right at the start, which ultimately made the whole experience seamless. Both Laura and Kayleigh were absolutely fantastic at understanding what we would want and anticipating our wishes. Even when we visited for our tasting, we couldn’t put our finger on it, but the place felt magical. ( which our guests echoed after our special day) The banqueting staff on the day were so attentive, with serving canapés, wine and the meal it’s self. Rob and his team where there for any desire or wish on the day. If you can pass on our experience to your team, whom you should be extremely proud, they gave us the most special day! We are counting down the days until we will revisit for our 1st anniversary! Many thanks Mark & Kirsty Rowles

We would recommend the Old Course a million times over. I don’t even know where to start with writing this review as our whole day was perfect. From the moment we arrived the day before we felt like VIPs and nothing was too much trouble. Laura and Lucy made planning this wedding as stress free as possible and on the day Lucy made sure everything went off without a hitch, if anything wasn’t going to plan I certainly never knew about it. We did a choice menu for 112 people and everyone since has commented on how good the food was! We had to make some adjustments last minute (aka on the day!) with COVID drop outs and this was no problem at all. All the guests commented that at the reception there was plenty of food and alcohol circulating. I could go on forever about how good our experience was with TOC and we will be grateful forever to the whole team there and especially the wedding team for giving us the perfect day.

Best Day Ever! Everything exactly how we wanted
Thank you so much to Lucy and team our day was absolutely incredible! The full day ran so smoothly - the food and service were out of this world. Special mention to Tara the catering manger who just went above and beyond during the evening. I’m so sad it’s over the staff at the old course are honestly like your family.

Amazing service, totally recommend
We only wanted a small wedding, and was initially worried that no one would wanted to help because of the low numbers involved. But Lucy and her team at the Old Course were brilliant. They showed us various options and did everything we could have asked for. Nothing was too much trouble and the day was superb. It was exactly as planned. I would throughly recommend the Old Course Hotel.

From the first moment we met Lucy and the team at the Old Course Hotel we recognised that the hotel did things differently from other venues that we’d been to see. The wedding planning and coordination service offered by the hotel is genuinely client centred and offered us so much flexibility to create the day we wanted. We were not restricted by the venue in any way which was something we’d encountered in most of the other venues we went to see. The hotel is made to feel like your home for the duration of your event and we were able to pick different spaces to host drinks receptions, wedding breakfast etc and these could be decorated largely to our own tastes. The spaces at the hotel have recently undergone renovation and are both luxurious and spotless. The choice of food and drink on offer at the hotel was far superior and more diverse to that in other venues. Special touches like the complimentary menu tasting and wedding planning meetings also make a big difference. Our wedding coordinator, Lucy, was on hand throughout the process and was so patient and helpful. She thought of everything and on the day was essentially like another bridesmaid! I would not hesitate to recommend the Old Course Hotel to anyone thinking of getting married in Fife.
