As you arrive in Scotland to begin your custom Golf tour, your driver-guide will be waiting at the airport to greet you and welcome you to our bonnie wee land.
You’ll drive from the airport to your hotel before heading off for an afternoon tee time at Muirfield Golf Club. Situated by the coast of the Firth of Forth, Muirfield is a beautiful links course, once described by Jack Nicklaus as “the best golf course in Britain”.
Once you’ve finished your round, there may be time to taste some of Scotland’s famous whiskey at the clubhouse before driving back to the city to take advantage of Edinburgh’s excellent range of bars and restaurants and returning to your accommodation for the night.
You and your driver-guide will leave Edinburgh on the morning of day two and travel to Trump Turnberry Golf Club on the West Coast of Scotland. The iconic Ailsa Course at Trump Turnberry is one of the country’s best courses, with spectacular views of the Ayrshire coast, the Island of Arran and Aila Craig.
After 18-holes at Trump Turnberry, we’ll stay for a spot of lunch before driving north to Scotland’s biggest city: Glasgow.
Once we arrive, we’ll drop your baggage off at your hotel before heading out for a quick city tour, where depending on your preferences there are lots to do and see! In the evening you might want to take advantage of some of the city’s incredible restaurants or perhaps a private Scotch whisky tasting event.
On day three of your Scottish golf tour, we’ll drive from Glasgow to Gleneagles Golf Resort - an award-winning luxury golf resort situated in the heart of Scotland. Gleneagles offers some of the country’s best and most beautiful courses, including The King’s, The Queen’s, and The PGA Centenary Course which were designed by golfing royal, Jack Nicklaus.
In the afternoon you may want to travel to the nearby town of Stirling, where you can visit numerous tourist destinations such as Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument, before returning to Gleneagles to stay at the resort’s stunning 5-star hotel for the night.
Today we’ll drive from Gleneagles to the ‘Home of Golf’: St. Andrews. Considered as the oldest golf course in the world, the Old Course at St Andrews is a must on any golf tour of Scotland, allowing visitors to truly play a piece of history.
As you and your group are walking up the 18th fairway, you’ll cross the iconic Swilcan Bridge to see the beautiful Old Course Hotel in the background, which will also be your accommodation for the night.
The Old Course is the home of the Open Championship and has hosted the major 29 times since 1873.
Today we’ll drive from St Andrews to play one of the most challenging courses on our tour of Scotland: The Championship Course at Carnoustie. Golf is recorded being played at Carnoustie back in the 16th Century - making it one of the oldest golfing destinations in the world.
This stunning and iconic golf club offers players a choice of four choices, the crown jewel of which (The Championship Course) is regarded as one of the best courses in the world.
Once you’ve had your fill of golf for the day, we’ll drive up to the north-east of Scotland to stay in Aberdeen City Center - possibly stopping along the way at a Scotch distillery or two.
Day six starts early, as it features two rounds of stunning golf to get through. First on our list is only a short drive from your hotel: Royal Aberdeen.
One of Scotland’s oldest and most prestigious golf courses, Royal Aberdeen was founded in 1780, but golf was recorded being played there as far back as 1625! Situated beside the Aberdeen coast, this is one of our personal favorite courses to play.
From Aberdeen, we’ll head north - following the coast - for about half an hour before we reach our second course of the day and 7th course of the tour: Trump International.
A simply stunning links course sitting on the coast and surrounded by sand dunes, Trump International is one of Scotland’s newest courses but makes up for its lack of history with some of the best holes you will find in world golf and some of the greatest views in Scottish golf.
Once you’ve finished your round, we can visit some local restaurants and bars before returning to your accommodation for the night.
On the final day of your golf tour of Scotland, we’ll travel from Aberdeen to Royal Dornoch - stopping along the way for a spot of lunch.
Referred to by many as the ‘King of Scottish Links Courses’ we couldn’t think of a better way to finish your golf tour than with Royal Dornoch’s Championship Course; situated beside the Dornoch Firth this is said to be the third oldest course in the world.
Offering fantastic views of the Scottish countryside, Royal Dornoch is one of Scotland’s best courses and is the perfect way to remember our wee country and your private golf tour.
