remains, as ever, the source and the soul of the game of golf.
A visit is equal parts history lesson and golf adventure. The
history is powerful, and pervasive, and provided in what amounts
to a continuous museum quality experience. The joy of course is
that this museum is entirely and uniquely interactive. When your
name is called to the first tee at the world #4 Old Course - where the
likes of Morris, Braid, Jones, Palmer, Nicklaus and Woods have
teed it too - your knees will know it. It's more of the same when
you survey The Postage Stamp, and when you turn into the wind
at Hogan's Alley. The Scots offer an inordinate number of the
world's most cherished golf courses and everybody is invited to
better, Scottish golf is beautifully convenient. The clubs are
clustered for the most part, often allowing you to select a single
hotel from which to operate. On the west, Ayrshire Coast, you'll
find Turnberry with her world #18 Ailsa and Kintyre Courses, Royal Troon,
Western Gailes, Glasgow Gailes, Dundonald, and a throwback among
the throwbacks – Prestwick. Then, for those with steely
determination and the deepest sense of appreciation for the experience
of links golf, there is The Machrie and Machrihanish. Both are
magnificent and elusive. A visit to their remote locales, the
southern tip of The Mull of Kintyre and the Isle of Islay, promises
to distinguish the career of any traveling golfer.
On the east coast, St. Andrews is flush with seven
courses of its own as part of the Links Trust, plus neighboring
Kingsbarns, Crail, plus the Fairmont St Andrews with The Kittocks and The Torrance Courses. Slightly north, a collection featuring world #21 Carnoustie also
includes Panmure, Montrose and Monifieth. An hour west is renowned
Gleneagles, one of the world’s most respected hotels and
home to some of James Braid’s and Jack Nicklaus’ finest
The Scottish Highlands are highlighted by world #16, Royal Dornoch, whose plateau greens are a feature that Donald Ross took from his home course and used on many of his classic designs. Nairn, Nairn Dunbar, Brora, Moray and Tain are longstanding favorites of northern visitors who are also certain to enjoy Royal Aberdeen and world #83, Cruden Bay on the way up or back.
Less than two hours south of St Andrews, is East Lothian, where you will find yet another assortment of clubs representing the essence of links golf. Gullane’s three courses, North Berwick, Dunbar, and Cragielaw are situated in succession along the coast east of Edinburgh each with histories reaching back to the roots of the game.
