Top 5 reasons to visit Scotland for your next golfing holiday:
1. Play the oldest golf course in the world
Known as the Musselburgh Old Links, this historic nine-hole course is recognised by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest surviving golf course. Documented evidence proves that golf was played here as early as 1672, although it’s been reputed that Mary, Queen of Scots played here in 1567. For a unique golfing experience, you can hire hickory golf clubs and play the game as if you went back in time.
2. The views
Scottish residents and visitors alike are dazzled by the beautiful scenery all around. Enjoy a round (or two!) of golf with stellar sea views, rolling hills, snow-capped mountains, lochs, forests and more.
3. After dinner golf
One of the greatest lures to Scottish golf is the abundance of daylight hours in the summer. At the height of summer, it can remain light up until 11:30 pm – giving you plenty of time to get a round in after work or dinner.
4. Perfect for touring
With over 550 courses within a relatively small area, it is understandable why players come from all around the world to play golf in Scotland. You can easily travel around Scotland, enjoying multiple courses in one trip. The convenience of renting a car in Scotland, will allow for you to enjoy the freedom and flexibility of visiting as many courses as you desire!
5. The “home of golf” – St. Andrews
This historic seaside and university town north of Edinburgh on Fife’s east coast is home to seven golf courses with the Old Course at St. Andrews at its heart. Playing the Old Course is an ultimate bucket-list item for most golfers. It’s hard to argue against the fact that this is the most iconic golf course in the world and one that all golf enthusiasts should experience. Pick up your premium rental car from our central Edinburgh location or Edinburgh airport and be at the “home of golf” in less than two hours!
