Although all of Scotland offers quality courses and picturesque scenery, we highly recommend the following areas and regions. Most likely your tour will include courses from a variety of these areas.
Fife is host to the Old Course at St Andrews, the iconic Home Of Golf. However there is far more to this historic region than just the old course. Fife is home to some of Scotland’s most challenging and beautiful links courses including Kingsbarns, The Castle Course and Lundin Links. In St Andrews alone there is 11 quality courses that vary in lay-out, character and difficulty.
East Lothian located at the south east of Scotland. The 40 mile stretch of coastline is home to some of Scotland’s best championship courses and hidden gems. Muirfield is the flagship course in this golfing mecca and has hosted some of the most memorable open championships over the years. Only 5 minutes down the road lies Gullane which hosted the Scottish open in 2015 and 2018. In total there are 22 courses in East Lothian, all of a very high standard.
Set in idyllic scenery with rolling hills, quaint lochs and magnificent forests lies Perthshire and some of the best inland courses in Scotland. Gleneagles is a luxury golf and country estate resort that hosts three outstanding courses. Most notably The PGA course which hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup. However Perthshire has more strings to its bow than just Gleneagles with great courses such as Auchterarder and Blairgowrie within a stone’s throw from the luxury resort.
Aberdeenshire is famous for its jagged coastline and giant sand dunes. Aberdeenshire’s irregular but scenic coastline has attracted some of the world’s best golf architects including Tom Morris, James Braid and Dr Martin Hawtree. Some of the regions standout courses include Royal Aberdeen, Murcar, Cruden Bay and most recently Trump Aberdeen.
