Play some of Scotland’s most iconic links courses with our Scottish golf packages

Scotland is a true golfer’s paradise. The game of kings was born in the Auld Country in the 15th century, and it remains alive and well in the 21st century. No other country on earth can compete with a Scottish golf trip for famous championship golf courses, from St. Andrews to Muirfield, Carnoustie to Turnberry.

The modern game of golf, played over 18 holes, originated in Scotland in the early 1400s, and it’s said to have been a favourite pastime of Mary Queen of Scots. The Old Course at St. Andrews is widely considered to be the oldest course in the world, as the sport was first played on the links here around 600 years ago.

The links are what make Scotland such a unique golf experience. For many, they’re the purest form of the game. From the hard, grassy surfaces to the natural contours of the land, the gorse-covered rough to the volatile sea breezes, links are hard and unpredictable, but also surprisingly forgiving – a unique challenge.

Here’s our pick of the 4 best link courses, all of which can be enjoyed with our Scotland golf packages:

What a trip! Truly a once in a lifetime experience to visit Scotland, play the most famous courses with the most professional caddies in the world. Kevin took care of everything ahead of time, advised us on the best places to play, stay, eat and drink. He took care of all the logistics and bookings, along with helping us navigate the St. Andrews Old Course Ballot (we got in as a foursome!!!). I highly recommend booking your next Scotland golf trip with Kevin Fogarty, you won't regret it!

Our group of 6 had a trip of a lifetime to St. Andrew's thanks to Kevin Fogarty and Scottish Golf Experience. Working to plan this trip with Kevin more than 7 months in advance was a very smooth process. He handled all the logistics and tee times for our desired schedule - and really stepped in to assist with some last minute adjustments mid-trip. We enjoyed our accommodations and recommendations for the area. We played 6 rounds of golf over 4 days and Kevin's knowledge of St. Andrew's was invaluable in helping us navigate the Ballot and Singles lists to ultimately get our group out on The Old Course. We couldn't have had a better time and must assign much of that to the guidance from Kevin at Scottish Golf Experience. He's even a pretty decent caddie!! 😉

We had an amazing trip. Trip of a life time without question! Kevin was incredible. Took care of everything! Stayed within walking distance to The Old Course. Tee times, pro caddies (my caddie was carried in open championship this year at Carnoustie!) and some of the most iconic golf courses in the world. Absolutely world class!!! Thanks again
