Delegates will be divided into teams and given a challenge document which involves the team driving around the resort in a golf buggy to various locations and completing a number of golfing challenges. The team returning first with the completed challenges wins a prize. Basic coaching is given but this activity is all about fun rather than learning the advanced golf swing.

Custom Fitting

Receive a unique custom fitting experience at the five-star golf resort Fairmont St Andrews. St Andrews Golf Co. has over 130 years of clubmaking experience and is the last club maker in the world to retain traditional hand-crafting and custom-fitting skills.

Using the latest Flightscope, 3Bays Analyser and GASP video technology, every aspect of your swing (including shaft torque, angle of attack, strength and clubhead speed) can be analysed to ensure your clubs are perfect for you.

Often when traditional club fittings take place, players are confined to the boundaries of a swing studio, with artificial hitting surfaces and no real visual of the ball flight, apart from that of a computer screen. This experience however, offers you state of the art equipment and analysis in the beautiful surroundings of Fairmont St Andrews resort. This offers a stunning, all grass hitting surface with 100% golf balls, meaning you can get accurate and true ball flight visuals.

In addition to the wonderful golf facilities, Fairmont St Andrews boasts two championship courses to test your new clubs and of course the beautiful St Andrews Bar & Grill for light refreshments before or after your session.
