Featured European Tour Destination: Scotland, The Home of Golf

The Solheim Cup, 16th edition

The Solheim Cup returns to Scotland, the ‘Home of Golf’, for the first time since 2000. The Solheim Cup brings together the 12 best players from Europe and the USA and
 follows the same format as The Ryder Cup, with 28 matches – eight foursomes and eight fourballs over the first two days and 12 singles on the final day. 

The Solheim Cup 2019

Gleneagles, PGA Centenary Course will host The Solheim Cup from 9-15th Sep. Perhaps a case of "America meets Auchterarder," the PGA Centenary is a testing and challenging big dimension layout. Landscaped over expansive undulating terrain, the course brings into play plenty of water, extensive bunkering and vast greens. In addition to being a regular European Tour venue, in 2014 the PGA Centenary course hosted the Ryder Cup, which was won by the Europeans, led by Irishman Paul McGinley.

Gleneagles, PGA Centenary course

Should you want to tee off around Gleneagles, head to:

Crieff Golf Club (Ferntower course)
located just a few miles north of Gleneagles, Crieff's Ferntower Course also benefits from stunning views across the wonderful Perthshire hills from all parts of the course. In the pine forest above the course you may catch a glimpse of eagles (if not up there perhaps on your scorecard ?). Occupying its lovely park like environment, Crieff is a thoroughly enjoyable layout, offering a good test of golf and some stunning views into the bargain.

Blairgowrie Golf Club (Rosemount course) is one of Scotland's bonniest courses and a long-time favourite with golfers from around the world. Designed by James Braid (with strong Alister MacKenzie influences), Rosemount course 
weaves its way through avenues of silver birch and pine, with heather also coming into the equation on many holes. The course is always presented in excellent condition, and for many golfers visiting Scotland, provides a welcome respite from the more dramatic and windswept links courses by the sea.
