Golfing holidays in Scotland
Golf in Scotland
Scotland is regarded as the home of golf, with the game first played at St Andrews some 600 years ago. These days there are over 500 Scottish courses, the most courses per capita of any country! We also lay claim to many of the most beautiful and most challenging courses in the world. So, whether you prefer windy links-style golf or a picture-perfect parkland game, you’ll be spoiled for choice for your golfing holidays in Scotland.
The Old Course at St Andrews is the oldest course in the world and also considered one of the finest links courses. There are several other superb links courses in the area too, which are just over an hour’s drive time from Logiealmond. Our favourites are Kingsbarns and Carnoustie which is often regarded as ‘Golf’s Greatest Test’.
PERTHSHIRE GOLF CLUBS
There are around 40 golf courses in Perthshire itself, often with mountain and moorland settings. Top of our list is Gleneagles where the first informal Ryder Cup was played in 1921. Another favourite is Rosemount at Blairgowrie, under 30 minutes’ drive away by car. The oldest royal golf club in the world, the Royal Perth was named by King William IV in 1833, is also close by in Perth.
