Picture of a Golfer
"Golf is an exercise which is much used by a gentleman in Scotland......A man would live 10 years the longer for using this exercise once or twice a week."
Dr. Benjamin Rush (1745 - 1813)


In 1457 playing golf was outlawed in Scotland but by the end of the 15th century it had the royal seal of approval when King James IV of Scotland (1473 -1513)  became the world's first golfing monarch. Some of the most famous golf courses in the world are in Scotland: their names evoke the passion and tradition of the game of golf. Gleneagles, The Old Course at St. Andrews, Carnoustie, Royal Troon, Prestwick, to name but a few.....

Indulge your passion for the game and enjoy a golfing break in this most beautiful region of Britain.
