Win a luxury Scottish golf break at St Andrews

Global Golfer has teamed up with Fairmont St Andrews resort to offer our readers a chance to win a one night stay, bed & breakfast and golf for two people.*

Situated in a magnificent coastal clifftop setting, just two miles from St Andrews “The Home of Golf”, Fairmont St Andrews is one of Scotland’s finest golf resorts.
