Come to Scotland and play a round. There are over 550 courses to chose from. Golf in Scotland is a game for everyone and indeed recently the Scottish Government introduced a scheme to give all 9 year old children a series of free golf lessons!
It’s not just about the famous Championship courses like The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie, Muirfield, or Royal Troon, but also the hidden gems which are to be found all over the country. Nine holers like Traigh near Arisaig, Sconser on the Isle of Skye and Arran with its 7 courses.
Inland favourites include Crieff, Lanark, Kirriemuir,Glencruitten,Ranfurly Castle and St Fillans whilst links courses like Moray Old, Lundin Links, North Berwick,Prestwick St Nicholas and Machrie on the Isle of Islay offer a real challenge.
Whatever your standard Scotland has a course for you. Just bring your handicap certificate and a small “ carry bag” for your clubs. Many areas have local passes which enable you to play all the local courses whilst the private clubs are usually very happy to have visitors who pre book a tee time. Details of these passes can be found on www.visitscotland.com.
