Explore Scotland: The Home of Golf.
If considered as its own entity, the home of golf has more courses per capita than any other, with a golf course for just over every 9,000 people. It’s not just the Open Championship courses which make Scotland such an outstanding golf destination, either. From the more remote gems to the modern classics, Scotland has a diverse array of links to entice you.
Awe-inspiring castles, a plethora of Michelin-starred restaurants and the finest whiskies in the world (many of which can be tried for free by Worldwide Golf Adventures clients) means there’s more to the land of the Scots than great golf. Be sure to ask your travel consultant for more ideas on how to supplement the world-class golf on your itinerary.

The Spectacular Southwest
From $2,949 per golfer*
The coast of Ayrshire, a historic county in southwest Scotland, is rich with golfing history. We highly recommend this itinerary packed with three Open Championship courses and a ferry trip across the Firth of Clyde to the great old links of Machrihanish.
Tracing the North Coast
•Royal Aberdeen Balgownie Course
From $2,899 per golfer*
Granted, the Highlands and Aberdeenshire in northern Scotland haven’t hosted an Open, but don’t be fooled; they are still home to some of the truly great links in Scotland. The recent development of Trump International Golf Links gives the Aberdeen area three of Scotland’s best courses, and Royal Dornoch to the north should be near the top of any golfer’s bucket list.
Fife Favorites (+Carnoustie)
•Crail Balcomie Course
From $2,749 per golfer*
The Old Course is one of seven golf courses run by the St. Andrews Links Trust. We suggest adding the venerable New Course to fulfill the Links Trust’s two-course requirement when booking the Old, along with several other world-class courses within a short drive of the Home of Golf’s sacred grounds.
The Open Rota
•Royal Troon Old Course•St. Andrews New Course
From $3,199 per golfer*
Five different Scottish courses are in the current Open Championship rotation, and an itinerary that includes all five is certainly realistic, if planned well in advance. Throw in a round at both Prestwick and Musselburgh and you will cover every Scottish course that has ever hosted an Open!
*Prices are based on 4 golfers staying in budget accommodations for seven nights and include a self-drive van. All packages including the St. Andrews-Old Course presume a tee time acquired through either the Advance Application or Daily Ballot.
