St Andrew's receives plans for multi-million-pound golf resort

Exciting plans have been announced for a multi-million-pound golf resort to be constructed near to the 'Home of Golf' at St Andrews.

The site on Feddinch Mains farm will include a clubhouse, up to 39 suites, a spa and a restaurant, creating a great experience for both golfers and tourists.

Work has also begun on the new 18-hole championship golf course which has been designed by 1973 Open champion Tom Weiskopf. 

“The uniqueness of Feddinch is two-fold: it is in a superb location, just 2.5 km from the beautiful town of St. Andrews, the home of golf, and will offer superb facilities, including a stunning clubhouse and golf course," said Weiskopf. 

“The new owners are committed to providing the most comprehensive golfing experience in the British lsles and I am incredibly excited to finally see this dream project come to fruition.”

 

 

The listed farmhouse at Feddinch Mains will remain intact during development, however, the rest of the buildings on the site are set to be demolished.

The area of the proposed development is almost 100 hectares and consent to build on the site dates back to 2004. 

In January 2017, Scotia Investment Group gained permission to build the clubhouse with a huge 41 apartments but unfortunately, their permission expired in January 2020 as the construction work had not begun.

GHP Engineering purchased the site in early 2020 so the development of the clubhouse and other features could finally start, and it is fair to say the company are looking forward to producing a great new resort in Scotland.

A spokesperson from GHP Engineering said: “This exciting and ambitious scheme will deliver unrivalled standards of golf, accommodation and service at St Andrews, the Home of Golf, benefiting both members and the local community.”
