Ayrshire & Argyll Golf Package
Located approx 60 – 90 mins drive south west of Glasgow, The Open championship venues of Turnberry, Royal Troon and Prestwick, the original site for the Open, are a must play for any discerning lover of the game. In addition the area is home to such fine tests of links golf as Western Gailes, Gailes Links and Barassie. Heading over to the Kintyre Peninsula will allow you to experience the challenge of Machrihanish Golf Club’s fearsome 1st hole tee shot “across the Atlantic” and the chance to play the highly regarded “new course” at Machrihanish Dunes, the creation of architect David McLay Kidd.

Highlands & Perthshire Golf Package
For classic Scottish scenery and challenging golf courses the area to the north of our Highland capital city of Inverness provides some of the very best. Starting with Brora, a jewel in designer James Braid’s crown followed by Golspie with its mix of links, heathland and parkland holes, then on to the renowned Royal Dornoch whose Championship course is regularly rated in the top three best courses in the world. Tain sits on the banks of The Dornoch Firth.With water on one side and the backdrop of mountains on the other, this course is simply stunning. Just a fifteen minute drive east of Inverness lies Castle Stuart Golf Links, host venue for The Scottish Open on four occasions. Nairn Golf Club, situated on the banks of The Moray Firth, is one of the most spectacular courses in Scotland with sea views from every hole. Nairn Dunbar with its deep pot bunkers and excellent undulating green complexes possesses all the thrills associated with true links golf.
Heading back down the A9 towards the city of Perth you have Blairgowrie Golf Club offering 36 holes of wonderful “must play” golf on both The Rosemount and The Lansdowne courses. Alyth and Crieff come highly recommended as does Pitlochry which has some of the most dramatic mountain views in Scottish golf. Gleneagles remains one of the world’s best golf resorts, with no fewer than three full length layouts; The PGA Centenary Course (host venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup and 2019 Solheim Cup), The King’s and The Queen’s.

North East & Aberdeenshire Golf Package
As one of the more remote regions in Scotland, the area to the north of the “Granite City” of Aberdeen is home to some magnificent golf courses that blend beautifully into the landscape. Founded in 1777 the Corbie Hill Course at Fraserburgh is an 18-hole masterpiece sitting within substantial dunes.Originally laid out by Willie Park Jnr in 1892 Peterhead Golf Club’s Craigewan Links is a “real hidden gem” according to Butch Harmon following a visit in 2005. Cruden Bay offers old fashioned links golf at its very best. With towering sand dunes framing hollowed fairways and elevated tee boxes set against the backdrop of the North Sea it truly is a “must play” for all golfers. Whilst Trump Aberdeen has quickly established itself as a modern classic, Murcar Links and Royal Aberdeen with its two courses are always highly recommended.

Angus & Fife Golf Package
There is no better place to start than just north of the city of Dundee at Carnoustie Golf Links. The Championship course is widely regarded as one of the finest links courses in the world, along with it having the most bruising finishing stretches in golf. Just down the road lies Panmure and the Medal Course at Monifieth, where five time Open Champion Tom Watson first experienced playing links golf. Moving into The Kingdom of Fife, Scotscraig is part-links, part-heathland and is a course you can’t afford to miss; a layout where accuracy is more important than length. Although St Andrews Links operates seven different courses, for the vast majority of golf visitors The Old Course is the one they all want to tick off the list.
The latest addition The Castle Course boasts a stunning clifftop location overlooking the town.Next up is the simply stunning Kingsbarns Golf Links, where the sea is visible from every point on the course. Crail Golfing Society with its two courses sits at the easternmost tip of Fife whilst golf has allegedly been played at Elie since the 15th century. Both Lundin Links and its neighbour Leven Links enjoy spectacular views across Largo Bay. The very latest development at Dumbarnie Links will open for general play during the 20/21 season.

East Lothian Golf Package
Stretching from Dunbar in the east to Musselburgh in the west, East Lothian’s 40 mile stretch of coastline is able to boast no fewer than 15 excellent links layouts. Gullane is home to three wonderful courses. Luffness is a traditional links layout with plenty of thick rough and at the east side of Gullane lies Muirfield. An Open Championship host venue on sixteen occasions, its reputation as an exacting test of golf is fully deserved.
East of Muirfield lies The Archerfield Estate which houses three more incredible courses; The Renaissance Club, as well as Archerfield’s own Fidra and Dirleton tracks. North Berwick Golf Club was founded in 1832 and is the third oldest of any club still playing over its original fairways. The Glen, fondly known as North Berwick’s “east links” combines inland turf with a glorious setting and views over the Firth of Forth. Heading back west from Gullane, Kilspindie is a classic example of links golf in its simplest form. Craigielaw which only opened in 2001 has already hosted the Senior Scottish Open.In addition to its fine links courses East Lothian also has some first class parkland layouts. Royal Musselburgh, the fifth oldest golf club in the world is certainly one which is well worth a visit.
