Scottish Golf Tourism Week is now in full swing at the Fairmont St Andrews resort – and for The Green Hotel at Kinross this is an exciting opportunity to let the world know of its grand ambitions.

Home to two 18-hole golf courses, The green hotel is currently undergoing a £100,000 refurbishment which is expected to upgrade the facilities from three to four stars.

This, in turn, will enable specialist hotel management company Amity Hospitality – which currently manages day-to-day operations – to sell 36-hole four-star golf breaks in the lucrative European market. Currently, only one other Scottish four star hotel can offer 36 holes of golf.

“We are very happy to represent The Green Hotel at Scottish Golf Tourism Weeksaid Nick Kourie, COO of Amity Hospitality. “On the one hand, it’s fantastic that this event is back as an in-person event, allowing us and other exhibitors to meet delegates from around the world in a relaxed face-to-face setting. They are the main golf operators bringing over 50,000 golfers to Scotland.

“Secondly, we believe that The Green Hotel has a very strong offer for golf holiday planners. We were brought in by the owner to oversee and implement a huge refurbishment of this much loved hotel, in addition to putting in place the management and staff to keep it running. Our objective, as with all the hotels we manage, is to develop these activities through multiple sources of income. »

The Green Hotel has strong links with other “sister businesses” including Loch Leven Gin and Loch Leven Brewery. This, Kourie says, offers the opportunity to offer potential visitors a range of enticing “golf plus…” packages.

Within the hotel itself, the renovation will include a complete overhaul of the ground floor, with new flooring and a new look for all rooms, including the installation of new televisions, from here the end of the season. A new contemporary look had already been given to the reception and the Jocks Bar.

Phases two and three of the renovation project will resume in 2023, completing the upstairs accommodation.

“With The Open taking place in St Andrews this summer, where accommodation is expensive, we are able to offer groups of golfers a more affordable option where they can still enjoy fantastic golf right on their doorstep. “, Kourie added. “St Andrews which is less than an hour away is still very accessible as a day visit.”
