"Ladies First", says Fife golfing industry


Following on from last year's successful promotion, the most lady friendly hotels and golf courses in the Kingdom of Fife have once again shown that they know exactly how to treat a lady, on and off the golf course. This innovative golfing project, 'Ladies First' promotes holidays, and in and around St Andrews, designed specially for lady golfers.

"These holidays offer exactly the kind of accommodation, facilities and golf that ladies are looking for," said Grizelda Cowan, PR Executive for Kingdom of Fife Tourist Board. "We are confident that lady golfers from all over the UK and overseas will want to make Fife their first choice for a perfect golfing holiday, tailored to their needs."

On offer this year are ten golf courses in the Kingdom including the Scottish National Golf Centre which boasts an indoor practice area complete with two bunkers and a water hazard. All the courses, which include historic championship links, charming parkland courses and some of Scotland's newest fairways, extend a particular welcome to visiting lady golfers.

When it comes to places to stay ladies are spoilt for choice. The hand-picked hotels and country houses are all perfectly located for a golfing holiday in 'The Home of Golf'. All of the accommodation is peacefully situated in lovely countryside or small villages. Ladies can enjoy first-class food and excellent service or 'do their own thing' in a beautifully appointed, well equipped self-catering house.

"By extending a special welcome to lady golfers, we hope to show them that Fife is the perfect venue for their golfing holidays," said Sheila Briggs of The Old Station Country House by St Andrews. "Although we always welcome golfers of both sexes we do feel that the lady golfer's particular needs are sometimes overlooked and we intend to redress this balance."

A brochure which gives details of all the tempting golfing holidays on offer is being sent to all Ladies Golf Clubs in UK, and can also be obtained from the St Andrews Tourist Information Centre Tel 01344 472021. This year all reservations will be handled by Drumgolf so one call will do it all.
