The Best Golf In Scotland...

Scotland Golf 

Scotland’s ultra-exclusive golf clubs reign as some of the top spots for international power networking. It’s a tightly controlled world of acceptances, rejections, wait-lists and good words from powerful friends. So while it’s every golfers dream to make the pilgrimage to Scotland, and play the courses where it all started, it’s not possible to play the most exclusive courses without the relationships and connections to make it happen. That’s where we come in…

The Old Course / Kingsbarns 

Old Course

The Old Course St. Andrews, Fife.. Nowhere else in the world can you walk in the spike marks of every legendary figure to have played the game. Augusta National is rightfully hallowed, but Bobby Jones himself has said that if he had to play only one course for the rest of his days, he’d grow old on the Old Course..!

Kingsbarns St. Andrews, Fife..The first reference to golf at Kingsbarns is dated 1793, but it took another 200 years before Kyle Phillips and Mark Parisinen designed the latest incarnation, a course that looks like it’s been here for years and has already cemented its place among the top links courses in the world.


Royal Troon / Ailsa Turnberry

Royal Troon

Royal Troon Troon, Ayrshire.. Host to eight British Opens, Troon plays through brambles, gorse, and broken sand hills. The most famous hole is the Postage Stamp, so named because the 123-yard par 3′s green is so small. The front nine holes play along the beach, and then turn inland for the back nine.

Ailsa Turnberry, Ayrshire.. Named after the third Marquess of Ailsa who owned the land on which is was built, this par-70, 7,211-yard championship course is one of golf’s storied places. Home to four Open Championships, imagine rolling hills, sandy dunes, and a stiff breeze blowing off the Ayrshire coast. Beautiful on a sunny day, and exacting in the cold and wind. Welcome to Turnberry..!


Royal Dornoch/ Castle Stuart

Royal Dornoch 

Royal Dornoch Dornoch, Sutherland.. Dornoch was formed in 1877 and has been a Royal club for more than 100 years. The course isn’t very close to anything, has never hosted a major tournament, and the setting is wild, isolated, and beautiful. The greens are built on natural raised plateaus making the approach play challenging. This is a course that’s on everyone’s must-play list.

Castle Stuart Inverness.. Castle Stuart is destined to become one of the best courses in the world, and it’s already living up to its early hype. With generous fairways atop sandy links, and land that’s spiced with wild-wooly bunkers and to-die-for views of the Moray Firth and Highlands, this is a rare course that appeals to both low and high handicap players.

Kings Course / PGA Centenary Course


Kings Course Gleneagles, Perthshire.. Gleneagles was the product of the Caledonian Railway on a high spot known as the White Muir of Auctherarder. The moorland turf is firm and gravel based, and the course twists, turns, rises and falls through a magnificent palette of golden gorse, purple  heather, green pines, silver birch and blue lochs. To visit Scotland and not play Gleneagles, would be a mistake.

PGA Centenary Course Gleneagles, Perthshire.. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, opened in 1993 and host course for the 2014 Ryder Cup, a round of golf on this course is a challenge even for the best. Measuring 7,088 yards, this is the longest inland course in Scotland, and it begins by laying towards the famed Glen of Eagles before sweeping up to the Ochill Hills. You’ll find Scottish pot bunkers and American style traps along the way, and you can’t afford to let your concentration fade at any point along the way
