Sample Itinerary

Day 1:

Arrive Glasgow or Edinburgh, Scotland. Drive to Troon or Prestwick and check into the hotel that has been arranged for you according to the class of hotel service requested. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy as you deem fit, a suggestion may be to tour the quaint town of Troon, visit the beach or perhaps visit the historic castles nearby. Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.

Day 2:

Golf has been arranged for you at Royal Troon. This historic course has hosted several British Open, and is considered a very stern test of golf that has recognized several previous winners including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. Founded in 1878, this course contains the infamous “Postage Stamp” hole measuring a mere 123 yards, but requiring a wedge to a 3-iron depending on the wind. Non-golfers may wish to drive Burns Heritage Trail. Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.

Day 3:

Play today will be arranged at Troon Portland, the sister course of Royal Troon. This challenging course is shorter but requires an exacting game due to the narrow fairways. The course is generally played after a round on Royal Troon and a lunch at the luxurious Ailsa Suite of the Royal Troon clubhouse. A true test of golf. Non-golfers may wish to visit Culzean Castle. Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.

Day 4:

Old Prestwick awaits all challengers today. Considered the most historic of all British Open courses, this course held the first 12 British Opens, with the last in 1872. Famous for the Cardinal bunker that stretches the width of the 3rd fairway, this course is extremely difficult due to the tremendous amount of controversial blind shots and extremely deep rough. Non-golfers may wish to visit the Isle of Arran. Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.

Day 5:

This afternoon’s game will be played at Western Gailes. This course has provided many a test for golfers attempting to qualify for the British Open when Royal Troon is chosen as the host. Many seasoned golfers believe that this course is every bit a measure in comparison to its neighbor. Giant seaside dunes are a staple of this course, and deep, thick rough is especially demanding. This course is as challenging as any in western Scotland, and the greens are renowned as fast but true. The layout is hilly in nature, and the narrow fairways are as extremely challenging. Non-golfers may wish to visit the historic town of Ayr.  Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.

Day 6:

Glasgow Gailes golf course is scheduled to host your party today. Another qualifying course for the British Open when scheduled at Royal Troon, this course is the ninth oldest in the world. A challenging links course, the layout includes dense heather lined fairways, demanding a straight tee shot. Ball placement is at a premium at this lovely and stoic ancient golf course. Non-golfers may wish to visit Dean Castle. Overnight at your golf vacation hotel.

Day 7:

Golf today will be at Troon Lochgreen. This municipal golf course is located in the middle of Troon, and is extremely lengthy. Regarded as one of the finest public links in all of Scotland, the greens are somewhat flat, but present a small target in comparison to other Scottish courses. Although the sand traps are not as demanding on other courses in the area, there is a tremendous amount of doglegs that require precise ball striking. A great tune up course for any British Open type challenge. Upon completion of your round of golf, leave for the airport or extend your trip with additional golf arranged by our staff.
