Introducing

Play 5 iconic golf courses in just 4 nights with such highlights as St Andrews Old Course and 2 nights stay at Greywalls Hotel, adjacent to The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers

 

Arrival Day 1

Fly into Edinburgh Airport and transfer to St Andrew’s. Check into the Old Course Hotel and get ready to play some golf.

Day 1 (evening) Play The New Course (St Andrews)

The oldest ‘new’ course in the world, the second course at the Home of Golf was built by the Keeper of the Green Tom Morris in 1895 and it was imaginatively named to differentiate from its famous neighbour. Boasting undulating fairways and challenging greens, the New Course is a classic test of links golf.

Day 2 Play The Old Course St Andrews

The oldest and most iconic golf course in the world. The Swilken Bridge and Hell Bunker are recognised across the globe, yet the greatest feature of the Old Course is that despite its grand status it remains a public golf course, open to all.

Day 3 Play Carnoustie

Designed in 1850 by Alan Robertson with minor changes by Mackenzie and Ebert in 2017, Carnoustie is a world-renowned links golf course. A host to The Open on seven occasions, Carnoustie is all set to host the 2018 Championship.

A very challenging links course, who can forget Jean Van de Velde’s Open demise on the 18th hole in the Barry Burn!

Not the most scenic of courses (you rarely get glimpses of the sea), it nevertheless tests every shot in the bag on more than one occasion.

Day 4 Play Muirfield

Muirfield is the home of The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (HCEG) – the world’s oldest golf club (being formed in 1744). It was the first course designed with concentric rings of nine holes (the outward nine running clockwise around the edge of the course and the inward nine running anti-clockwise inside the outward nine). This layout ensures the wind hits you from all directions! Host to 15 Opens and most recently won in 2013 by Phil Mickleson. It has also played host to the 1973 Ryder Cup won by The USA.

Day 5 Play North Berwick West Links

The West Links in North Berwick is a one off. With nine holes out and nine holes back in and with a short par 4 18th hole that finishes in the town, it has a similar layout to the Old Course. It’s also the 3rd oldest course in the world still playing over its original fairways. The views out over the Firth of Forth are magnificent and when you come to the par 3 15th hole (Redan) you will be playing the most copied hole in golf. No wonder it is one of the most loved (and popular) golf courses in Scotland.
