30th August – 2nd September 2019

 


 

Day One

Best Western Scores Hotel, St Andrews
North Berwick Golf Club
Upon arrival you will be greeted by a member of our team who will deliver your Range Rover vehicle for your trip. 
You will then travel South East from Edinburgh towards the Scottish/English Border where you will come across the quaint seaside town of North Berwick. Here on the beach you will find the ancient West Links at North Berwick. 
North Berwick West Links is a classic out and in links course. The course dates back to the 17th century and is the third oldest golf course in the world, only Musselburgh Old and St Andrews date back further. North Berwick has some of the best links views in Scotland looking over the glinting Firth Of Forth. From the opening hole you will be able to see Bass Rock, a lump of volcanic rock that lies off the coast and is home to over 80,000 bird nests. The course is an all-around masterpiece, however the 2nd and 15th are the signature holes. The second is a long par 4 armed with bunkers up the left and the beach to the right, an accurate drive is imperative. The 15th is a short par three called “Redan” and is one of the most famous par three’s in links golf. With a plateaued green, a couple bunkers short of the green left and right, it is a par three that has gained an unrivalled reputation over the years.
After your round and possibly after some refreshments in North Berwick’s beautiful sandstone clubhouse. You will travel north to the famous town of St Andrews where you will spend the first of your three evenings at The Best Western Scores Hotel, St Andrews which is the closest hotel in the world to the first tee at The Old Course, St Andrews. 

 


 

Day Two

Best Western Scores Hotel, St Andrews 
Kingsbarns Golf Links 
On day two you will make the short distance east from St Andrews to the town of Kingsbarns, where it is believed, that golf was firstly played before the ban on golf in Scotland placed by King James I. 

The Kingsbarns Golf Links is a modern links course; although technically not in St Andrews, Kingsbarns lies a short distance east of the famous golfing town. Despite not being fully listed as a St Andrews course this is certainly not a golf course to pass up with many saying that this is the finest links course in Scotland if not the world. Having joined as a venue on the European Tour this course serves as one of the trilogy of hosts for the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship which it shares with The Old Course and Carnoustie. The Alfred Dunhill Links is a pro-am event which is a favourite with many professionals on the season calendar. The course also played host to the 2017 Ricoh Woman’s British Open.


 

Day Three

Best Western Scores Hotel, St Andrews
Carnoustie Golf Links
On your final full day of your golf experience in Scotland you will make the journey north, out of Fife to Angus where you will find the famous links of Carnoustie. 
Carnoustie or as some know it “Carnasty” is regarded as one of the toughest courses in the UK. The Open has been held at Carnoustie 8 times, with many a dramatic moment being played out over the historic links throughout the years. Most famously was Jean Van De Velde’s catastrophe in the Barry Burn on the last day of the 1999 Open Championship, where he made a triple bogey. Carnoustie poses a stiff test even for the most seasoned of golfers with meandering burns, formidable bunker combinations and ferocious rough.
From Carnoustie you will travel back to St Andrews for your final night in the “Mecca of Golf”
