Championship Golf Courses

Our location is ideal for anyone looking to sample the very best Championship Golf courses in Scotland:

St.Andrews                                                                                                                                                                                                       

St. Andrews, and the Old Course need no introduction to golfers. Avoiding the bunkers is the key to success on the Old Course. Most are hidden from the players view, probably because the course used to be played in a clockwise direction, unlike the present day, when it is played in an anti-clockwise direction. The Open Championship has been played at St. Andrews more than 25 times, and will be again in 2015. The New Course and the Jubilee Course also come under the control of the Management Committee. Although these courses are not as well known as the Old Course, each provide their own challenges, and they offer the chance to sample golf in the place where the game was born.

Muirfield Golf Course

Muirfield is the Home of the Honourable Company of Gentlemen, and is a classical Links Course. The original Honourable Gentlemen's Club was founded in Leith, on the outskirts of Edinburgh in 1744 but later moved to Musselburgh, and finally in 1891 to Muirfield in East Lothian. Over the years Muirfield has been host to 15 British Open Championships.  In 2008, under the supervision of the Royal and Ancient, the golf architect Martin Hawtree was commissioned to advise the club on how best to ensure that Muirfield remains a challenge to the best golfers in the world going forward. Some further amendments have been made prior to the Open Championship, which will be staged there in July 2013. This club is very private and is available for visitors on Tuesday and Thursdays. It is situated just 35 minutes from the Prince Street Suites and is an 18 hole course over 6,733 yards. See more details on their website www.muirfield.org.uk/


Carnoustie

Like Muirfield, Carnoustie needs little introduction to golfers, and is one of the oldest 10 golf clubs in the world with a long and proud tradition. The club was formally founded in 1842, although records show that golf was played on the site for several years prior. The first formal course was planned and laid out by Robert Chalmers in the 1830s, but was replaced by a course set out by Alan Robertson of St. Andrew's in 1850, which forms the basis of today's course. This in turn was redeveloped and extended to 18 holes by Old Tom Watson  in the 1870s, and amendments were made to the last three holes in preparation for the British Open Golf Championship held at the club in 1937 . The current Club House was built in Link's Parade in 1898. Founding members met in a numbers of “Howffs” (inns or taverns) in the town prior to a round, but the most popular was the “Ferriers Inn”, which remains today's popular 19th Hole. The most recent Open Championships were held at Carnoustie in 1999 and 2007. For more information visit: www.carnoustiegolflinks.co.uk
