Are you ready for a 5-day private tour that covers two beautiful countries and some of the world’s greatest and most prestigious courses?
Well, you’re in the right place… This incredible custom golf tour starts in Dublin, where your driver-guide will be waiting to greet you off your plane and welcome you to our beautiful country.
From there, your driver-guide will show you to your luxury touring vehicle before taking you on a short city tour of Dublin - stopping for pictures and breaks wherever you please - before heading to the first course of your golf tour: Druids Glen.
Druids Glen Golf Club is an incredible golf resort that offers two championship courses, a 5-star hotel, and a beautiful clubhouse. Once you’ve finished your round you can rest at the Druids Glen Hotel - which will be your accommodation for the night - or if you still have some energy left in you after a packed first day in Ireland, your driver-guide will take you back into Dublin where you can take advantage of the city’s vibrant bars and restaurants before returning to your accommodation at Druids Glen.
On the morning of Day Two, your driver-guide will take your group north from Druids Glen to play one of the oldest courses in the country: Royal County Down.
Royal County Down Golf Club offers two stunning 18-hole links courses and it’s long and distinguished has seen it host prestigious events such as The Irish Open in 1928, 1935, and more recently in 2015; The Palmer Cup in 2012; and The Walker Cup in 2007.
In the evening, we’ll head to Belfast City Center, where your driver-guide will give you a quick tour of the City en route to your accommodation. Belfast has a fantastic selection of restaurants and bars to keep your group occupied throughout the evening if you’d like any special experiences such as a private whiskey tasting session, or an evening sightseeing tour, just let your driver-guide know and they will gladly organize it for you.
Day three sees us leave Ireland behind after player two beautiful courses and fly across to the Scottish Capital: Edinburgh. When you arrive, you’ll be greeted at the airport by your Scottish driver-guide and welcomed to ‘The Home of Golf’.
From the airport, your driver-guide will take your group down the east coat to Muirfield Golf Club; a stunning links course once described as “the best golf course in Britain” by Jack Nicklaus.
After your group has completed Muirfield’s beautiful 18-holes, your driver-guide will take you back to Edinburgh where there may be time for a short city tour, or to watch the sunset over the city from one of Edinburgh’s many scenic viewpoints before arriving at your accommodation on your first night in Scotland: The Balmoral Hotel.
The Balmoral Hotel is a Victorian masterpiece and is an event in itself. It’s also perfectly situated in the city center to allow you and your group to make the most of the city’s bustling night-life, bars, and restaurants throughout the evening.
On day four of your private golf tour of Scotland and Ireland, you’ll travel from the Scottish capital to the beautiful Gleneagles Golf Resort, Hotel, and Spa in the heart of Scotland.
Gleneagles has some of the country’s best and most visually stunning courses on offer: The King’s, The Queen’s, and The PGA Centenary Course (all of which were designed by golfing great Jack Nicklaus).
After you’ve completed your round, we’ll head to the nearby town of Stirling to visit the iconic Stirling Castle and Wallace Monument before driving to the East Coast and arriving at the true ‘Home of Golf’, St. Andrews.
In the evening, you may have time to visit the British Golf Museum in St Andrews and find out more about how the beautiful game began before we head to the magnificent Old Course Hotel where you’ll spend the night.
Side note: we’d thoroughly recommend the private whiskey tasting session at the Old Course Hotel if anyone in your travel group is a fan of Scotch.
As we enter the final day of your golf tour, we’re reminded that all good things must eventually come to an end, however, we think we might have saved the best until last on this tour.
On the final day of this incredible private golf tour, you and your group will spend the morning on the greens and fairways of the Old Course at St Andrews.
The Old Course is the oldest golf course in the world and is the home of the Open Championship (having hosted the event 29 times). Playing the Old Course is like stepping back in time and playing a piece of history, something any true golf fan should aim to experience.
Once you’ve finished your round, we’ll stop for lunch overlooking the iconic course before heading back to Edinburgh in time for your flight.
If there is time left before your flight, we may be able to spend the afternoon/early evening exploring Edinburgh and it’s many tourist destinations.
Your driver-guide will then drop your group off at your check-in desk and wish you safe travel and a fond farewell until your next visit to Scotland or Ireland.
