Holidaying in Scotland: A Golfer’s Paradise

If you’re thinking of taking a holiday that revolves around your favourite sporting activity, make the most of the rare instances when we Brits are blessed with a little sunshine and keep your upcoming golfing holiday ‘in house’.

It’s puzzling why so many British golfers spend a huge portion of their holiday budget on flights, just to reach their destination. Add to that the extreme temperatures of Mediterranean during the summer months, which transforms golf from a pleasant outdoor pursuit to a sweaty chore, and it’s even more difficult to understand why more people don’t choose to base their golfing holidays in the UK. The temperatures are delightfully pleasant and you won’t have to waste hours of your trip languishing in the departure lounge.

Anyone basing their holiday in the UK will be spoilt for choice when it comes to championship courses in stunning natural surroundings. This is especially true for Scotland, which boasts golfing opportunities tempting enough to bring travellers from all over the world.

Looking for some inspiration as to where to head to on your Scottish golfing break? Take a look at this list of top 100 golf courses in Scotland, which has been created by golf enthusiasts in search of the best golf courses.

It’ll be no surprise that the world renowned St. Andrews, commonly referred to as the ‘home of golf’, occupies the number one spot in this comprehensive list. Every golf fan has dreamed of teeing off at this iconic course and following in the footsteps of Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods. This is definitely one that will send shivers down your spine and it’s unlikely that you’ll fail to be impressed by the magical location.

We’d also heartily recommend the course which rests in a very well-earned 5th place in the guide to Scottish golf courses – Carnoustie Links. The course occupies a fantastic position on the North Sea coast in the charming county of Angus and is one of the locations for the Open Championship rotation.

That said, it’s worth bearing in the mind the reputation Carnoustie has as one of the most difficult courses in the world; golfers in North America have even gone so far as to nickname it ‘Car-nasty’. This is the perfect choice for golfers in search of a unique course that challenges golfing capabilities.

There are plenty of opportunities to relax after you’ve conquered this notoriously tough course. If Carnoustie Golf Links has a reputation for difficulty, then the Carnoustie Golf Hotel  is renowned for its comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, which is perfect for unwinding after a long day on the green. Golfing breaks at this hotel, and throughout the rest of Scotland, are available to book online at golf holiday specialists, Golf Kings.

You don’t have to leave the country to experience fantastic golf. Some of the best and most famous courses in the world are right on our doorstep, and have been host to some of the biggest names in golf. If you decide to discover the best of what Scotland has to offer, we’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
