Golf in Scotland
What’s more, it is possible to get tee times on the other Scottish courses that regularly play host to The Open, though the best advice is to write to the clubs in question well in advance. Do that and you’ll have a much better chance of getting to follow in the footsteps of many of golf’s greats by playing at the likes of Carnoustie, Muirfield, Prestwick, Royal Troon and Turnberry. In addition to tee times being readily available, you’ll also find that more and more golf clubs in Scotland are pulling out all the stops to make themselves family friendly, both on and off the golf course. Whether old or new, however, the common factor with all Scottish golf clubs is that you can be guaranteed the warmest of welcomes. Scottish golfers love their own golf but they take just as much pleasure from seeing visitors enjoying their courses, too. Most Scottish courses are open year round so there’s no one season to visit Scotland. The fairways and greens remain in good condition throughout the year, allowing visitors to enjoy their golf even though they may have a layer or two of extra clothing on.
