Below are just a few examples of what Scotland has to offer:
- St Andrews - The town that needs no introduction in the world of golf. Like much of Scotland, St Andrews still bears historical remains of significance and importance in Scotland's upbringing. Why not take a look for yourself...
- Castles - You could spend a tour in itself gazing at all Scotland's magnificent castles and architecture. Each castle has its own story (and usually its own ghost to go with it!). Enjoy a step back in history with tall tales and myth...
- Distilleries - For those of you who enjoy our national drink, Scotland boasts a world famous array of single malt distilleries. Golf Scotland can arrange whisky trail tours, one off visits or whisky tasting for anyone who has a taste for Scotland. Slainte Mhath (good health)...
Dinner Reservations - Table reservations at hotels should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment particularly at the larger resorts of Turnberry, Gleneagles & St Andrews Bay. This also assists the hotels in staffing arrangements to ensure that your experience is nothing short of excellent. Please see our recommended Restaurants list for for exceptional dining experiences in your area.
Whisky Tasting - Since the 15th century, besides devloping the game of golf, the Scots have been just as busy developing a extensive range of fine whiskies. After playing a historic links course, soak up the experience with a tasting session.
Brian, would you please pass this along to the top brass at Golf Scotland? Bob Millar did a terrific job and we will be requesting him when we come back. He couldn’t have been more prepared, professional and thorough. The travel, itinerary and accommodations were outstanding. Being able to play 5 fabulous courses, including The Old Course, without a hitch, was too much to ask for. Everything was bloody great!
Thanks to all at Golf Scotland for making our trip so memorable. Jeff Hebrank
