Clubhouses throughout Scotland are full of fascinating golf memorabilia recalling home grown legends like Old Tom Morris and James Braid. Scotland is rightly renowned for its historic links courses.

Tour a Whiskey Distilleary, take in a castle excursion and enjoy a few nights pub touring. The local culture will add so much to your Scotland golf vacation. Now, it's your turn. Take a challenge and take your game to experience Scotland this year.
Suggested Scotland golf courses to play:
Old Course at St. Andrews - It's probably the most famous course in the World but securing a tee time can be a challenge. It is possible whether by staying in a local hotel that has blocked tee times or being successful in the daily ballot draw. Let us try and help you play this golf icon in your Scotland golf package. Do book a caddie since the flags do not contain hole numbers and with many double greens you need to play to the correct hole.
New Course at St. Andrews - It's not as famous as her older sister but is just as good. The greens are small and the fescue-lined fairways can be tight off the tee but if you can't play the Old Course on your Scotland golf trip then play the New Course.
Gullane #1 - located an hour east of Edinburgh in East Lothian this gem (one of 3 on-site) is an Open qualifier and is a must-add to your Scotland golf trip. Many of the holes play along the Firth and the second and seventeenth holes are considered by many to be two of the toughest in that area.
North Berwick - also an hour east of Edinburgh, this course has many deep bunkers that have ropes to help you in and out along with short rock walls that weave through the course since it was sheep farm originally. You'll love the views and design.
Carnoustie - or known by many as 'Carnastie' this Open favourite with Scotland golf guests and is located east of Dundee (about 90 minutes north of St. Andrews) and will challenge all players. Beware the small fairway pot bunkers that can be quite deep as well as the winds off the Sea. Stay and have a pint in the clubhouse after your game to socialize with the locals.
