Thur 19th July - Play Crail Golf Club

The Balcomie links, with its marvellous views of the Firth of Forth, is the home of the Crail Golfing Society. The 9th oldest golf club in the world it was formed at a meeting in the local pub (yes a pub again!) in 1786. A short par 69 and under 6000 yards the yardage is irrelevant, given the ever-present wind. A course where every shot has to be fashioned not just hit, it was initially designed by a local farmer before it was redesigned by Old Tom Morris. It is ranked 74th in Scotland.

Fri 20th July - The Open Championship at Carnoustie

Today will be your first day at, and the second day of, the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie. Watch the world’s best players jostle for position as they look to make the cut and give themselves a chance to get their hands on The Claret Jug.

Sat 21st July - Play Elie Golf Club

Established in 1875 and extended from 9 to 18 holes in 1895 by Old Tom Morris, James Braid then later revised it. Braid was the son of an Elie ploughman 5 time Open Champion and prolific architect.

A great course it is unusual- the opening drive is blind and there is a vintage submarine periscope (from HMS Excalibur) located at the starters hut on the 1st tee to see over the hill to make sure the group ahead are out of harms way. It also only has 2 par 3’s and no par 5s.

Views are terrific over The firth of Forth to North Berwick, Muirfield, The Bass rock and Gullane.Elie is a splendid open links course kept in top condition, although it can sometimes be windswept. Ranking 43rd in Scotland.

Sun 22nd July - The Open Championship at Carnoustie

Head back to Carnoustie for the fourth day and climax of the 2018 Open Championship. Join the players and spectators to watch who will be named Open Champion and The Champion Golfer of The Year.

Mon 23rd July - Play Gleneagles PGA (Ryder Cup venue)

Few places boast 3 courses let alone 3 top 100- but then there is only one Gleneagles. Designed by Jack Nicklaus it has an American style layout and was built as a stadium course measuring 7300 yards from the back tees. The course opened in 1993 and played host to the 2014 Ryder Cup which was won by Europe 16.5 to USA 11.5.

Tue 24th July - 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.

Before playing at the home of golf you will transfer to Hotel Du Vin.

Wed 25th July - Play Carnoustie Golf Links

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.

Thur 26th July - Kingsbarns Golf, then whisky tour

Situated just 6 miles from St Andrews Kingsbarns is an important addition to the ancient links courses in this area. One of the delights of the course is that you can see the North Sea from virtually every part of the course. Created by the vision of Kyle Philips in the late 20th century earthmovers rumbled and shifted hundreds and thousands of tonnes of earth to create the landscape you see today, uncovering The Cambo burn as part of the work.

Kingsbarns jointly hosts The Alfred Dunhill Cup every year and has also hosted The Women’s British Open in the past few years.

Followed by a whisky tour and tasting at The Kingsbarns Distillery.
