    The St Andrews Bay Resort was developed by American Don Panoz, whose other golf-related ventures include the massive Diablo Grande complex in California, and Chateau Elan in Georgia.

    St Andrews Bay Hotel opened in 2001, and the golf courses opened in 2002.

    St Andrews Bay Hotel provided accomodation for players, celebrities and guests during the Dunhill Links Championship - an IMG worldwide television event which promotes the Dunhill brand of products, including cigarettes. Original Owner Don Panoz claims to have developed the nicotine patch.

    The project had a turbulent passage through planning and the early development stages. Serious concerns were raised, in the press, regarding the granting of planning approval, and the lack of planning control during construction.
