The crown jewel that sits on the regal throne of golf has to be St Andrews. Their world famous Old Course is steeped in the richest of history, dating as far back as the 15th century. It is believed that St Andrews is where golf originated, which has led to it being given the honourable title as “The Home of Golf.” For many golfers, playing in the Old Course is the ultimate bucket list golf experience, offering the opportunity to play where previous legends have won here.
It is often argued that Ayrshire is the best place in the world for golf and it is not difficult to see why. Located in the south-east of Scotland, Ayrshire is densely populated with nearly 50 golf courses. Playing golf here gives you access to three of the world’s most treasured links courses that are also Open Championship courses – Old Prestwick, Royal Troon and Turnberry. Ayrshire has a mix of parkland, heathland and moorland courses that provide a variety of golfing treasures to be discovered.
Referred to as Scotland’s Golf Coast, East Lothian provides 21 courses set amidst its stunning coastline, golden beaches and rolling countryside. Having hosted the Open Championship sixteen times, Muirfield can be seen as the cream of the crop when it comes to prestige. Its relationship with the championship dates back to 1892 with the most recent being held in 2013. Muirfield’s prestige and rich history may make it the most famous in its region but there are other diamonds in the rough for you to discover.
North East of Scotland
Home to more than 50 clubs in a spectacular region with awe-inspiring scenery, the northeast is certainly a place that you have to visit. The most famous of these golf clubs is Royal Aberdeen – the sixth oldest in the world – where members can test their skills on the famous Balgownie golf course. If you are a fan of the links courses then you’re spoilt for choice, with the northeast providing quality courses such as Cruden Bay, Murcar and Fraserburgh.
The Scottish Highlands offers a golfing experience like no other, where you can sharpen your strokes on traditional links courses that nestle you in a realm of tranquillity, solitude and unmatched natural beauty. Here is where you will have access to some of the world’s most talked-about courses including Royal Dornoch Golf Club; the Nairn Golf Club: host to Walker and Curtis Cup competitions; and Castle Stuart Golf Links: three-time hosts to the Scottish Open.
