YOUR GOLF COURSES

CARNOUSTIE GOLF LINKS CHAMPIONSHIP COURSE

Ranked #26 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

The Championship Course at Carnoustie has hosted The Open Championship no less than six times and is a superb example of traditional links golf. It is widely recognized as one of the best seaside links golf courses in the world and many professionals have declared it as one of the toughest.

The original 18 hole course was designed by Old Tom Morris in 1857, but was revisited by James Braid in 1926 and has been hardly altered since.

With sloping fairways, fast greens and a selection of the most formidable bunkers in links golf, the Championship Course at Carnoustie certainly guarantees visitors an enjoyable but testing round on a memorable golf course.

KINGSBARNS GOLF LINKS

Ranked #42 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

Located directly on the North Sea coast only six miles from St. Andrews, Kingsbarns is without a doubt one of the most breathtaking links courses ever developed. Though it only opened for general play in July 2000, it's fair to say that the links appears to have been in place for the past century.

Kingsbarn is a real one of a kind and contrasts with Scotland's other famous links courses in that it is a new, man-made development. The significance of the development was highlighted by Sir Michael Bonallack, winner of 5 British Amateur Titles and present captain of the R & A when he indicated that "Kingsbarns might well be one of the last true seaside links sites capable of development in Scotland".

CRAIL BALCOMIE LINKS

Ranked #67 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

One of the world's oldest golf clubs, Crail Golfing Society was founded in February 1786 and initially comprised membership of 11 local golfers. The club's original home was located at Sauchope just outside the picturesque fishing village of Crail and it was not until 1895, with the help of Old Tom Morris did they relocate to their present home at Balcomie Golf Links.

The Balcomie Links at Crail, though not particularly long, is a truly beautiful venue with superb views of the North Sea from every tee. Far removed from the bustle of everyday life, many holes climb and tumble alongside the water's edge and the rocky outcrops of the Forth shore. A truly memorable round and one not to miss.

THE JUBILEE COURSE AT ST ANDREWS

Ranked #50 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

18 holes, 72 par, 6,742 yards

In 1997, the Jubilee Course celebrated its centenary. In the space of 100 years, it had developed from a 12-hole basic layout into one of the toughest tests of golf at St Andrews.

Created on a narrow strip of land between the New Course and the sea, the Jubilee was originally a 12 hole course intended for ladies and beginners. It was the result of an initiative by the Town Council who had re-acquired the Links under the 1894 Links Act.

It was extended to 18 holes in 1946 and was now 6,020 yards long. In 1988 the re-design of the Jubilee to championship standards was carried out by Donald Steel of Cotton, Pennink, Steel & Partners, golf course architects. The teeing grounds were raised, not only providing wonderful views of the Links, but also exposing the golfers to the winds which sweep in from the bay. Mr. Steel's redesigned course was 6,805 yards and now a real test for all golfers.

THE NEW COURSE AT ST ANDREWS

Ranked #29 in Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland

Were it not for the proximity of its more illustrious and ancient neighbor, many experts feel that the Open Championships – as well as many other major golfing events – would have been fought out here, the world's oldest and most challenging 'new' course.

Designed by Old Tom Morris and opened for play in 1895, the layout was based on the traditional out and back routing, and among its most famous features are the shared fairways and a double green at the 3rd and 15th holes.

The New Course is known and loved for its well designed greenside and fairway bunkers, plus a series of genuinely difficult homeward holes. The undulating fairways and deep greens make the course a classic links and, just like the Old Course, it has a habit of looking deceptively simple, especially when the sun is high.

There are many other excursions and tours, depending on the time of year, please check with us as your trip dates get closer.

EDINBURGH CASTLE

Edinburgh Castle has played a pivotal role in Scottish history, both as a royal residence and as a military stronghold. The castle last saw military action in 1745 and from then until the 1920s it served as the British army's main base in Scotland. Today it is one of Scotland's most atmospheric and popular tourist attractions.

The brooding, black crags of Castle Rock, rising above the western end of Princes St, are the very reason for Edinburgh's existence. This rocky hill was the most easily defended hilltop on the invasion route between England and central Scotland, a route followed by countless armies from the Roman legions of the 1st and 2nd centuries AD to the Jacobite troops of Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745.

The Entrance Gateway, flanked by statues of Robert the Bruce and William Wallace, opens to a cobbled lane that leads up beneath the 16th-century Portcullis Gate to the cannons ranged along the Argyle and Mills Mount Batteries. The battlements here have great views over the New Town to the Firth of Forth.

THE R&A WORLD GOLF MUSEUM

From the 16th century to the present day, the whole history of the great game is explored at The British Golf Museum. Discover the equipment, personalities and prizes of our much loved sport. Brought to life with hands on activities, interactives and modern interpretation, this is a must see attraction.

Visit their new flagship exhibition space, 'The Open Gallery', exploring the rich history of golf's oldest Major. Also in the Museum there are two exciting temporary exhibitions on golfing greats Sir Henry Cotton and Freddie Tait. Please visit throughout the year for their program of weekly events and lecture series.

The museum is a 5 minute walk from the town centre and is situated directly opposite The Royal and Ancient Clubhouse. There is a large car park behind the museum, operated by Fife Council and a coach drop off point.

BALMORAL CASTLE, HOME TO THE QUEEN

The royal family is nothing if not consistent. At the end of every summer, Queen Elizabeth II makes her annual pilgrimage north to Scotland for a multiple week-long holiday at Balmoral Castle.

The first home at Balmoral was reportedly built in 1390, but the property didn't enter into the British royal family until 1852, when Prince Albert purchased the estate as a gift for his wife, Queen Victoria, who loved the Scottish countryside. However, when the residence was deemed too small, the royal couple built an additional castle—the one that still exists today—to fit their growing family. The new structure was completed in 1856, and the other building was torn down. Now, the 50,000-acre estate features 150 buildings in total.

In more modern royal history, Balmoral served as the destination for Prince Charles and Princess Diana's less-than-romantic honeymoon. It's also where Prince Harry and Prince William learned of their mother's tragic death in 1997.

 

THE HIMALAYA'S PUTTING COURSE (ST ANDREWS LADIES' PUTTING CLUB)

A private club founded in 1867, the St Andrews Ladies' Putting Club course is open to the public daily from April to September (and in March and October, weather permitting).

Before 1860 the caddies of St Andrews had laid out a small putting area near where Rusacks Hotel now stands. They would play to pass the time while waiting for a bag. When the course was quiet a few young ladies would play.

There was some tension between the caddies and the ladies, so much so that it was decided a piece of ground be found where the ladies could play away from the caddies. There was an unused piece of ground to the north of the Swilcan Burn. The ground was rough with whins which were used by local washerwomen to dry clothes, and pitted with rabbit holes. A nine hole course was laid out by Old Tom Morris, requiring a cleek and a putter, and so the St Andrews Ladies’ Golf Club was formed in 1867.

The Himalayas lie between the famous Old Course and the spectacular West Sands, only a ten minute walk from the center of  St Andrews.

FLY FISHING EXPERIENCE

There are a number of companies, local individuals and clubs where you may spend a few hours or an entire day fly fishing.

The St Andrews Angling Club, founded in 1898,  has its own stocked lake and fly fishing is offered both from the bank and by boat. Day passes are available and are currently £20 which includes your rod. The club is located just 4 miles outside of St Andrews.

If you need a slight refresher course in fly fishing or are new to the sport, The Scottish Countryman offers fly fishing lessons along with over 2 hours of fishing in a local lochan or river. He provides all the equipment you'll need and will even extend the experience to include a picnic lunch featuring the very best local food and drink. His pricing currently ranges from £140 - £175, depending on length and the inclusion of a picnic. His experiences also include archery and birds of prey.

Whatever you choose, we will help coordinate your fly fishing day so that it is exactly what you're looking for during your stay in Scotland.

CAIRNGORMS NATIONAL PARK

The Cairngorms National Park, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, has everything from castles and distilleries to family attractions and endless outdoor fun. The UK’s largest National Park offers masses of things to do including watersports, snowsports, wildlife watching, and some incredible high and low level walking and cycling routes.

Experience some of the world’s most unique and rare wildlife and landscapes with a visit to one or more of the nine National Nature Reserves in the Park. There are hundreds of miles of paths and trails to explore throughout the park. Five of the UK's six highest mountains lie inside the park, along with the 3,000 ft. Munros  mountains, which can be found here too. There are huge forests of ancient native trees, cascading waterfalls, and more wildlife than you can image.

You can also enjoy some downtime amid the glorious scenery. Why not browse the bookshops and bars in Aviemore or make your way along the Malt Whisky Trail?
