Kingsbarns named Scotland's Best Golf Experience 2018
Kingsbarns Golf Links has been named the provider of Scotland’s Best Golf Experience for the fourth time in the last five years. The acclaimed Fife facility took the top prize at the 2018 Scottish Golf Tourism Awards – the climax to the third annual Scottish Golf Tourism Week – staged at the Fairmont St Andrews resort.
Kingsbarns Golf Links took the top honour on the night, as well as the Best Customer Service award, to the delight of chief executive Alan Hogg. “I’m absolutely delighted for everyone at Kingsbarns, including Art Dunkley, our owner,” he said. “He always just tells us to do what we need to do to make the customer happy and we’re obviously doing that well. The Scottish golfer is not always an easy customer to please, so I’m exceptionally proud to know that this comes from the votes of Scottish golfers.
Other Fife winners were Fairmont St Andrews - best hotel over 50 rooms, St Andrews Links, Castle Course - best clubhouse, The Duke’s, St Andrews - value for money (£50 to £100) and Balcomie Links, Crail - best course (£50 to £100).
