A golf trip to Scotland is also the perfect opportunity to see some of the world's most prestigious tournaments being played out. Scotland regularly hosts The Open Championship and the Ricoh Women's British Open, amongst many, many others.


The first record of golf in Scotland dates from the 15th century (back then it was known as 'gowf'). In 1764 the Links at St Andrews (now known as the Old Course) was reduced from 22 holes to 18, creating the standard course format we still use today, and in 1860 the first Open Championship was held at Prestwick - an illustrious history indeed! Find out more about the history of golf at the British Golf Museum in St Andrews.


Walk in the footsteps of the world's greatest golfer: Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus - amongst scores of other top golfers - have all played here and many of Scotland's most prestigious courses were designed by golfing legends. 'Old' Tom Morris designed the Old and New Courses at St Andrews while James Braid is responsible for more than 250 British courses, including the world-famous King's and Queen's Courses at Gleneagles.



In Scotland there are over 550 golf courses to choose from - that's more courses per head of population than anywhere else in the world! The range and breadth of Scottish golf courses means that whatever your level and course preference, you'll never be far from fairways and greens suited to you.

Championship courses, such as Royal Troon (host of the 2016 Open Championship), the PGA® Centenary Course at Gleneagles (venue of the 2014 Ryder Cup) and even the illustrious Old Course at St Andrews, can all be booked - with a bit of forward planning and - in the case of the Old Course which requires you to enter a ballot - a dash of luck.
