Assuming success in the ballot, you will play the famous St Andrews Old Course. Regarded as the birthplace of golf, this historic test has hosted numerous British Opens, with such winners as Nicklaus, Palmer and Woods. Although the course contains wide fairways and has little rough, the winds can create a demanding game. Home of numerous British Opens, this course will be a most memorable experience.

Play today will be arranged at the St Andrews Jubilee course. This extremely challenging course is longer and considerable narrower than the Old, and considered more difficult. The greens are small, and a 2 putt is an achievement. The course also contains more devastating rough and is more affected by the ocean wind. A true test of golf. Non-golfers may wish to visit Glamis Castle. Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.
Carnoustie awaits all challengers today. Considered the most difficult of all British Open courses, this historic course has recognized many past British Open winners, including Ben Hogan, Tom Watson and Gary Player.

Non-golfers may wish to visit Falkland Palace. Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.
Today you will enjoy the Crail (Craighead) golf course. Superbly maintained with magnificent greens, Craighead is a beautiful course but a challenge. Several of the fairways wind alongside golden sandy bays and rocky outcrops of the Forth foreshore. The Crail Golfing Society was founded in 1786 and is the seventh oldest golfing society in the world. The present Balcomie Links course was designed by Old Tom Morris in 1895 and is recognized as one of Scotland`s classics. Non-golfers may wish to visit Pitlochry. Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.
Kingsbarns golf course awaits your arrival. The course was carved from farmland that sweeps majestically along the sea, between the villages of Kingsbarns and Crail. The sea figures prominently on every hole at this majestic golf course.
