Day 1 Arrival
Your party will be met in the airport arrivals hall by the Muirfield Travel team. A private executive transfer to the McLeod House Hotel at Trump International will follow.
Day 2 Play Trump International Golf Links
Opened in 2012, Trump International has been a welcome addition to the Scottish golfing landscape and continues to climb steadily up the rankings. Already a ‘must play’ course with many spectacular holes winding their way through the Balmedie dune systems.
Day 3 Play Murcar Golf Links then transfer to the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa.
Murcar Links is a Championship layout which has as good a stretch of holes as many of its more famous contemporaries. Definitely not for the faint hearted, it represents a very challenging test of golf. To play it requires every shot in the book and if the wind is up, many more besides. Co-hosted the 2018 Amateur Championship with Royal Aberdeen.
Day 4 Play Royal Aberdeen Golf Club
Founded in 1780, Royal Aberdeen is the sixth oldest golf club in the world. Many major events have been played on the club’s Balgownie Links, which is characterised by numerous bunkers, heavy gorse and the constant weather elements.
Over the years Royal Aberdeen has hosted many championships – the first major held here was The Senior British Open in 2005 and it has subsequently hosted the 2014 Scottish Open.
The course ranks 18th in the U.K and 56th in the world.
Day 5 Play Cruden Bay Championship Course and The 9 hole St.Olaf Course
Cruden Bay Golf Club, a traditional Scottish links golf course, was originally designed by Tom Morris and Archie Simpson in 1899. They were commissioned by the Great North of Scotland Railway Company and it was re-designed in the 1920’s by Tom Simpson.
The original clubhouse was demolished in 1952 and the present clubhouse was constructed in 1998.
Cruden Bay winds its way through towering dunes with panoramic sea views, a stunning beach, drivable par 4s and back to back par 3s.
It is ranked 11th in Scotland and 75th in the World.
Day 6 Depart the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa.
Executive transfer to the Airport.
Accomodation Highlights - The Marcliffe Hotel
The Marcliffe at Pitfodels is a luxurious, relaxed and ultra-elegant five-star Scottish country hotel set in its own picturesque grounds on the outskirts of the historic city of Aberdeen in North-east Scotland. Although the Marcliffe offers a comprehensive range of superb facilities, which has deservedly earned it membership of the coveted Small Luxury Hotels of the World, it is essentially a family-friendly intimate hotel run by Owner Stewart Spence who is fiercely proud of its ambience of warmth, ease and charm.
