The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St Andrews is celebrating a Green Tourism golf award.

It recognises the venue’s commitment to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship, and evaluates various criteria including energy efficiency, waste management, water conservation, biodiversity, and community engagement.

The hotel has pioneered sustainable energy solutions, and introduced a combined heat and power system that uses natural gas to generate electricity and useful heat for the property, producing up to 100% of electricity needs and 60% of thermal needs at peak times. The hotel said the award “reaffirms its dedication to sustainable luxury and sets a new standard for eco-conscious hospitality in the region.

From reducing energy consumption to supporting local communities, we strive to lead by example in sustainable hospitality. The accomplishment of a gold award is a sign we’re on the right track."
