Featured Golf Destination: SCOTLAND, HOME OF GOLF


Most historians would point to Scotland as the home of golf. The Dutch may also lay claim to this honour, but in terms of where the game took hold and developed into the world-game we know today, then Scotland's claim is undisputed. Some golfing tracks, though perhaps not today's exact layouts, were in use 500 hundred years ago.

Links courses, next to the sea and played near to and over the sand dunes, is what we most associate Scotland with, but in locations such as GleneaglesDundeeLoch LomondSpey Valley and others there are also some exquisite parkland and heathland courses.  

A golf trip to Scotland is also the perfect opportunity to see some of the world's most prestigious tournaments being played out. Scotland regularly hosts The Open Championship, the Ricoh Women's British Open, the Dunhill Links Championship amongst many others.
