Golf is considered to be the greatest Scottish creation—and golfers worldwide are thankful. Scotland is the birthplace of golf and home to many of the world’s most renowned golf courses. For more than 600 years the game has thrived on Scottish soil and we believe there is no better place to enjoy a round of golf. Imagine walking the fairways of St. Andrews or Turnberry. One cannot help but feel the presence of history as these greens have frustrated and perplexed golf’s greatest players.
Why book a Scotland Golf Vacation Package?
- The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews published the first “Rules of Golf” in 1897.
- Golf was banned in Scotland from 1457 to 1502 so it wouldn’t interfere with military training in preparation for an English invasion.
- Ayrshire is the birthplace of golf’s most prestigious tournament, the Open Championship.
