“Scotland is known as the Home of Golf and is renowned for its fascinating history, rich culture and heritage and but above all, our golf courses are situated amid some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. Throughout Scotland there is a huge choice of golf courses to suit every skill level, offering quality, value for money, and above all, a fantastic and unique golfing experience. You are never too far from a golf course with more than 400 courses less than an hour from a city or an airport. Furthermore, the average green fee is £45 which is only around $70. Every golfer in the world should experience golf in Scotland at least once in their lifetime. Up and down the country Scotland offers unique coastal courses and magnificent links golf, complemented by breathtaking parkland, heathland and moorland golf courses, many of which have been designed by renowned golf architects and played by the golfing elite; another reason for cementing Scotland’s golfing reputation. Scotland of course boasts the famous greens of Turnberry and The Old Course. But we are not ones to rest on our laurels and new courses are being added to Scotland’s amazing collection all the time. Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club, set hard against the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, is the first 18-hole links golf course to be built on the west coast of Scotland in 100 years, while Castle Stuart in the Highlands is a championship links course overlooking the Moray Firth and well-known landmarks that are synonymous with Highlands. With more than 550 courses populating the stunning scenery the length and breadth of the country, you will never be stuck for quality or choice. With all this and more, there is always a reason for visiting Scotland.” Phillip Riddle, Chief Executive VisitScotland
