Should you want to tee off else where, head to:

Kilspindie Golf Club in East Lothian at around 5,500 yards from the tips, Kilspindie may not be the longest of the championship courses on Scotland's Lothian coast, but surely it is one of the finest of the "hidden gems". Lying discreetly on the nature reserve of Aberlady Bay, the course starts with four holes played directly alongside the Firth of Forth and its splendidly unspoilt seashore. 

Muirfield Golf Club, home to the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, provides one of the finest tests of links golf anywhere in the world. If you can secure a tee-time and pass through the Honourable Company's sturdy entrance gates, one of your most memorable rounds of golf awaits. From almost every hole there are picturesque views across the glorious Firth of Forth to the hills of Fife. Always immaculately presented, the quiet tranquillity of Muirfield is broken only by the chattering of skylarks, and the swish of fescues stirred by the sea breeze.
