Day 1: Arrival in Edinburgh – Muirfield Golf Club
Are you ready for a truly unforgettable six-day Scottish golf vacation? Steeped in history, prestige, and beauty, this golf tour has everything you could possibly hope for in less than a week!
Your driver-guide will greet you at the airport to welcome you to our wee country and show you and your group to your luxury touring vehicle.
Following a short drive through the city center, where you’ll get the chance to see the city’s stunning skyline and countless tourist destinations, we’ll arrive at your accommodation – The Balmoral Hotel – to drop your bags and refresh before heading out for your first round of the tour at Muirfield Golf Club.
Muirfield is a fantastic links course, situated just a short drive from Edinburgh City Center, once described by Jack Nicklaus as “the best golf course in Britain”.
Following your 18-holes at Muirfield, you and your personal driver-guide will travel back to Edinburgh, where your party will have the chance to explore some of the city’s bars and restaurants.
Day 2: Edinburgh – St Andrews Golf Club
Day two of this Scottish golf tour starts as you and your driver-guide leave Edinburgh and drive up the beautiful east coast of Scotland en route to the ‘Home of Golf’: St Andrews.
The game has been played at St Andrews since the 15th Century and amazingly still retains much of its old-fashioned charm today! Home to the Open Championship, St Andrews has hosted the major a staggering 29 times since 1873.
The Old Course’s iconic 18th fairway and Swilcan Bridge overlook the stunning Old Course Hotel – which will be your accommodation for the night.
In the evening, the Old Course Hotel offers private whiskey tasting sessions or spa treatments (depending on your preference) as well as incredible dining options.
Day 3: Carnoustie Golf Club – Transfer to Gleneagles
On the morning of day three, you and your driver-guide will leave the beautiful town of St Andrews to drive to the historic Carnoustie Golf Club.
One of the most challenging courses Scotland has to offer, Golf is said to have been played here since the 16th Century which makes it one of the oldest golfing sites in the world.
Your group will have a choice between Carnoustie’s four stunning courses; our recommendation would be ‘The Championship Course’ (if available) as it is regarded as one of the world’s best courses and certainly one of our personal favorites (although players with sizeable golfing egos should avoid as this challenging course very rarely allows visitors to play to their handicap).
Following your round at Carnoustie, you and your driver-guide will head to the iconic Gleneagles Golf Resort and Spa – where you will stay for the night ahead of your morning round.
Day 4: Gleneagles Golf Club – Transfer To Glasgow
Gleneagles offers visitors three courses (all designed by the great Jack Nicklaus) to choose from: The King’s, The Queen’s, and The PGA Centenary Course (often described as some of the country’s most beautiful courses).
In the morning, you’ll get to take your pick of Gleneagles’ courses and experience their beauty first-hand. Following your round, we’ll rest over lunch at one of the resort’s fantastic 5-star dining options, before driving to Glasgow: Scotland’s largest city.
When we arrive in Glasgow, we’ll have a short city tour before dropping you off at the Blythswood Hotel in the City Center. Glasgow offers visitors a host of incredible eateries, pubs, and whiskey bars, giving your group plenty to explore in the evening – let your personal tour expert know your preference and they’d be happy to organize you a personalized experience.
Day 5: Turnberry Golf Club
After enjoying some breakfast in Glasgow, you and your group will travel to the West Coast of Scotland to Trump Turnberry Golf Club. The historic Ailsa Course at Trump Turnberry is undoubtedly one of the country’s best, offering visitors stunning views of Aila Craig, the Island of Arran, and the Scottish coast.
After your group’s 18-holes, you can stay for some rest and lunch at Trump Turnberry – taking advantage of the clubhouse’s fantastic dining options – before heading back to Glasgow to spend the night.
If we have time in the afternoon, your driver-guide can take you to one of the city’s distilleries before dropping your group at the hotel for the night.
Day 6: Royal Troon – Airport Transfer
Unfortunately, all good things must eventually come to an end, and as the sun rises on your final day with us, we drive southwest down the coast in search of our final course of the tour: Royal Troon.
Royal Troon was founded 141 years ago (originally with only 5 holes before being expanded to 18 holes in 1888), just off the Firth of Clyde. Its clubhouse is adorned with historical golf artifacts and memorabilia, including its official “Royal” designation from 1978.
Following your 18 holes, your driver-guide will take your group over to Edinburgh in time for your onward flight. They will help you and your group to the check-in desk, to make sure there are no last-minute problems before bidding you farewell and wishing you a safe flight.
Leaving you both with nothing but fantastic memories and experiences from your time touring Scotland’s golfing masterpieces
