Popular Golf Courses In Scotland:

With golf having first been recorded in Scotland in the 15th century, the country is the undisputed ‘home of golf’, to such an extent that the Old Course at St Andrews is widely considered to be one of the essential places for golfing enthusiasts from around the world to visit during their lifetime. Certainly, the Old Course – an ancient links course that has been around since the 16th century – is a place where we would thoroughly recommend those embarking on Scotland golf breaks to tee off.
 
Our popular golf courses include:
  • St. Andrews Old Course
  • Gleneagles Hotel and its 3 golf courses!
  • Ailsa Course, Trump Turnberry Resort
  • Championship Course, Carnoustie Resort
  • West Links, North Berwick Golf Club

 

The oldest and most iconic golf course in the world. The Swilcan Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognised across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status it remains a public golf course, open to all.

When booking golf breaks in Scotland you should look no further than the superb 5 star Gleneagles Hotel. The Gleneagles Hotel is a magnificent 'French chateau' set amid gentle rolling hills in the heart of Scotland. The Hotel was established in 1924 and is acclaimed 'the palace in the glens' and continues to attract golfers in search of rest, relaxation and an amazing Scottish golf break.

A volcanic island half a billion years old, Ailsa Craig has borne witness to countless events throughout history and prehistory from its station in the Firth of Clyde. Home of four Open Championships, the legendary Ailsa course has hosted some of the most iconic names in golf. Reborn in June 2016 at the hands of renowned architect, Martin Ebert, the transformation makes the Ailsa the number one ranked golf course in the UK & Ireland. 

A reasonably gentle introduction to Carnoustie Championship golf course. The drive is played to a wide fairway with slopes which tend to take the ball to the right hand side, and should pose no real problems although the burn meandering in front of the first tee can intimidate the nervous golfer. In 2018, the Championship Course was voted Best Golf Course in Scotland over £100 by the general public, the second time it has won the award in the past three years.
 
The West Links Course is a true links located on the edge of the Firth of Forth. It is a  championship course having hosted many events over the years. Playing the course is all about imagination with the sea in play on 6 holes! The beach is just one long and sometimes wet hazard if the tide is in.
