Congratulations to our contestants. Keep checking the PerryGolf website for updates on future contests.
PerryGolf is delighted to introduce a sweepstakes which provides you with the opportunity to win a trip for yourself plus three golfing friends to travel to Scotland to enjoy six of the finest courses that the “Home of Golf” is famous for. Full details of the competition and and entry can be viewed here.
The courses included in this trip are some of Scotland’s finest; Castle Stuart, venue for the Scottish Open, Ailsa Course at Turnberry, multiple host to the Open Championship, Prestwick, venue for the first Open to be played, Centenary Course at Gleneagles, venue for 2014 Ryder Cup, Royal Dornoch, acclaimed links course where Donald Ross started his golf career and the Kintye Course at Turnberry, venue for a European PGA Tour event. While the golf is spectacular, the accommodations provided are at the luxurious and iconic Turnberry Hotel in Ayrshire and Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness.
The farther I can get from the obvious trophy courses when visiting Scotland, the more authentic my visits always prove to be (and the less likely it will take more than 3.5 hours to play).

The Scottish Open will be held at Castle Stuart for at least the next two years after a major sponsor was found for the event. Global investment management group, Aberdeen Asset Management, have agreed to sponsor the event for three years, with the first two definitely being held at the Highlands links course, with an option to continue for a third year.
The announcement was made at Edinburgh Castle at the weekend and is a major coup for the tournament as it was without a main sponsor until now after Barclays ended their 2013 association with the tournament, leaving serious doubt hanging over this year’s event.
George O’Grady (European Tour Chief Executive) said “We are delighted to welcome Aberdeen Asset Management, an eminent global company based in Scotland, as title sponsor of the Scottish Open, one of the most prestigious tournaments on The European Tour International Schedule which, this year, will once again be played on the spectacular links layout at Castle Stuart.”

Treasure hunting links golfers will be pleased to find new loot in the Highlands at Castle Stuart. It was Golf Magazine’s “Best New International Course of the Year” in 2009. It was ranked World 56 and selected to host the Barclays Scottish Open in 2011. Better still, if you’re the type that likes to hit the ground playing, the first tee is but 2.9 miles from the airport!
