Detailed Itinerary

Day 2

Golf: St. Andrews New Course

Arrive in Edinburgh where you will be met by a private coach, who will transport you to St. Andrews. You will have your choice of accomodations for this first leg of your journey: The Rusacks Hotel or Fairmont St. Andrews.

The afternoon will see you golfing at St. Andrews New Course. St. Andrews, reknown for being the "Home of Golf," boasts the oldest "new" course in the world. The 6,625 yard New Course was designed by Tom Morris in 1895 and is filled with rolling fairways and many classic challenges to test any golfer.

 

Day 3

Golf: St. Andrews Old Course

The St. Andrews Old Course is the oldest, most iconic golf course in the world. Despite its fame and 600 years long history, the Old Course is also well known for remaining a public course, open to all comers.

Day 4

Golf: Carnoustie Championship Course

Generally regarded as the toughest of the Open venues for those who understand the game a little more will know it is probably the fairest too. Without doubt though Carnoustie Championship Course does have the toughest closing stretch of holes anywhere and those finishing the final 4 holes with no more than a bogey should be suitably content with their play.

Day 5

Golf: Kingsbarns

Kyle Phillips designed this Top 100 Ranked golf course and by setting it in an amphitheatre along the coast, nearly every hole boasts spectacular views of the North Sea. Each Autumn Kingsbarns joins the Old Course, St Andrews and Carnoustie Golf Links as a co-host of the European Tour’s prestigious Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Day 6

Golf: Turnberry Kintyre Course

Pick up at your hotel by your private coach & driver you will have for the remainder of your trip. 

Travel toTurnberry Golf Hotel, your home for the next two nights.

In the afternoon, enjoy a round of golf on the Turnberry Kintyre Course. The par-72 Kintyre, called so after the long, narrow peninsula lying beyond the Isle of Arran in the Irish Sea, is another exhilarating championship course. Noted English architect Donald Steel has revised the old Arran course, originally constructed in 1909, into a 6,921-yard course that incorporates a set of turbulent swells in elevation.

 

Day 7

Golf: Turnberry Ailsa Course

Named after the third Marquess of Ailsa, who owned the land on which it was built, this par-70, 7,211-yard championship course is one of golf's storied places. Home to four Open Championships, Ailsa has shaped some of the most remarkable moments in the tournament's history.

Day 8

Golf: Royal Troon

One of the great links courses in Scotland, the Royal Troon Old Course is a challenging test of golfing ability. With the wind to contend with, and deep rough interspersed with gorse and broom, accurate shot making is essential. Players should make their scores on the outward nine, as the prevailing north-westerly wind can make the back nine extremely difficult.

After golf, travel to Quality Hotel Edinburgh Airport for your last night.
