old-course-hotel-golfThe five red star Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St Andrews has achieved three prestigious awards in just one week.

The first accolade is the prestigious Investors in People Gold Accreditation, the most successful framework for business improvement through people in the UK.

Hot on its heels came recognition from the AA – giving the resort its AA Notable Wine List Award and the iconic hotel completed the trio with Visit Scotland’s ’Taste Our Best’ award, recognising businesses that are “passionate about delivering a quality eating experience”.

Resort Director of Operations, David Scott, said that he is “absolutely delighted” with the news.

“Achieving the Gold Accreditation puts us in the top 7% of all IIP Accredited clients and represents our true commitment to employees.

“The hard work of our food and beverage teams is also recognised – from our sommelier to our team of chefs.”

Marco Silva, manager of the resorts food & beverage, emphasised the commitment to exceptional food and drink experiences – for guests and visitors.

Mr Scott said that Investors in People demonstrates a solid foundation of good practice and is a wonderful testament to the incredible hard work of staff in the hotel, the Kohler Waters Spa, the Duke’s Golf Club and the Jigger Inn and Hams Hame.

“Every colleague should be very proud” he said.
