Scotland’s Enjoyable but Challenging Golf Courses

These are the chosen few, known the world over, that have hosted the British Open, Ryder Cup or gained a similar distinction. But the vast majority of Scotland’s courses are less familiar, but are every bit as challenging as the bigger names and with just as much history – “secret,” undiscovered courses, many deep in the Scottish hills. Courses that have escaped the limelight. The resulting lack of fame brings some positive benefits to the visiting golfer, since these courses are less commercialised and unspoiled by floods of visitors.

This is where the local Scots play their golf, and this is your opportunity to meet them and enjoy genuine Scottish hospitality. The experience will be quite special. And this is where our hotels very much come into their own. Fill yourself with the legends and history of Scottish golf, talk amongst owners who know, enjoy and understand the game here.

And – if you wish to break from your golf or have non-golfers in your party there is a multitude of other activities and sightseeing opportunities to enjoy too.
