Arrive Edinburgh Airport, met & greeted by our representative, board your luxury custom golf coach. Tee off at Castle Stuart Golf Links. Designed by American developer Mark Parsinen of Kingsbarns and Gil Hanse, Castle Stuart is considered a “visual masterpiece. The opening three holes on each nine run away from the clubhouse along the edge of a raised beach alongside the Moray Firth, offering spectacular views across the water to the Black Isle. Clever mounding ensures most holes are played in isolation with the next hole only revealed after the current one has been played. Holes 4 to 9 and 13 to 18 are played more inland, with each loop ending on either side of a clubhouse that sits on the edge of the cliffs. One of the best holes is the 552-yard par five. On the more elevated back nine, the testing 220-yard 17th on top of the cliffs represents quite a challenge. Overnight in Nairn.
Tee off at Royal Dornoch Championship Links. Dornoch is widely considered to be one of the best natural and beautiful links in Scotland (many say in the world!). While records indicate golf was played here in 1616, the club was formed in 1877 with a Tom Morris layout. The course was later extended and modified by Donald Ross, a Dornoch native (par 72, 6,533 yards). Ross’s design is seen in every hole and particularly around the huge greens with bunkers, ridges, hollows and plateaus, and gorse abounds throughout. Overnight in Nairn.
Tee off at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club – Balgownie Links. The club, formally set up in 1789, is the sixth oldest in the world. At 6,404 yards, a hidden chasm in front of the first green sets the mood of these stern, long links. The ground is uneven but the landing areas are more level. After the 6th, the gorse closes in compounding the golfing challenge. Overnight in Cruden Bay.

Tee off at Cruden Bay Golf Club. The original course was designed by Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews and opened in 1899; subsequent revisions were made by Tom Simpson in 1899. The course provides spectacular views of the ruins of Slains Castle, which provided inspiration for Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”. Originally owned by the Great North of Scotland Railway Company, this traditional links offers an abundance of humps, hollows and greens tucked into unimaginable places. The finest sequence of holes is probably between the 4th hole, one of the finest par threes in golf and the par four, 7th hole. Cruden Bay creates unique challenges demanding the skills of power, placement and fine judgment upon the discerning golfer. Set against a backdrop of subtly contoured greens and magnificent panoramic views, a visit to Cruden Bay will be a most memorable one. Overnight in Cruden Bay.

Tee off at Carnoustie Championship Golf Links. Since the return of the British Open to Carnoustie in 2007, this links course has become an even more popular must-play venue. Over 110 bunkers adorn this links, along with punishing rough, plenty of gorse, and the Jockie’s Burn and the Barry Burn. The first hole “Cup” is one of the strongest opening holes in all of Scotland, and the now famous finishing holes speak for themselves. This is a tough track with lots of character. Overnight in St. Andrews.
Tee off at Kingsbarns Golf Links. Located just six miles outside St. Andrews town, Kingsbarns is truly extraordinary. Designed by Kyle Phillips, Kingsbarns is simply put a breathtaking links. Many links sit behind waves of low-lying dunes, obscuring the water. But there isn’t a hole at Kingsbarns without the great expanse of the North Sea in sight. The signature par 3 plays from elevated tee to elevated green across an inlet from the sea. Truly a must see, must play course. Overnight in St. Andrews.
