<Day 2 ~ Castle Stuart Golf Links

Today play Castle Stuart (tbc). Once Kingsbarns opened, developer Mark Parsinen began his search for an encore.  He found it in the Highlands overlooking the Moray Firth less than ten miles from Inverness where he and Gil Hanse fashioned another modern links classic.  The first three holes on each nine run away from the clubhouse and along the water. The remaining six on each side play on top of the escarpment offering spectacular views on your way back to the exceptional clubhouse.  Castle Stuart is a true links course in every sense with revetted natural bunkers, waste bunkers, rumpled fairways and run-up greens.  This three-time host to the Scottish Open complements any visit to the Highlands.

Your Itinerary

Originally a Scottish mansion house, the Kingsmills Hotel is set in 4 acres of beautiful gardens and is just one mile from Inverness city centre. The hotel presents a seamless blend of style and substance, proud of a reputation for warmth of welcome, traditional values of service, yet, flexible to the needs of today's business executive. Rooms are spacious and if you need to work in your room, there’s plenty worktop space for papers and laptops and high speed wifi is available throughout. Fine foods from exciting menus sourced locally served in the restaurant or the garden conservatory are complimented by an excellent wine list and a large selection of single malt whiskies. In 2010 saw the opening of the stand alone Kingsclub and Spa. Small and very select with 37 bedrooms with a choice of Cocoon or Retreat luxury air-conditioned bedrooms, a beauty spa, mezzanine lounge, business centre, massage suites, relaxation area, nail salon, green space, golf course views, exclusive bar and restaurant all with a city centre location. In the club spirit the bar is exclusive to guests of The Kingsclub; informal and peaceful it's a cocktail before dinner or dissect the day's sucesses on the golf course. Jump on our golf buggy and relax over dinner in our Inglis Restaurant or Conservatory Brasserie in the Kingsmills Hotel.

<Day 3 ~ Royal Dornoch Golf Club

Golf today on Royal Dornoch (tbc).  An hour north of Inverness, along a crescent shaped stretch of the Dornoch Firth is a narrow strip of softly contoured dune land rising on two distinctive levels, providing just enough room for fairways framed by heather and gorse. It is here where Royal Dornoch was founded in 1877.  Old Tom Morris extended the layout to 18 holes in 1886 which has been modified over the years to produce a layout consistently ranked today among the world’s top 20.  MacKenzie & Ebert improved four holes and built a new 7th.  The club was Donald Ross’ famous inspiration for raised, domed greens.  A very limited supply of golf carts are available for hire. Certain restrictions may apply, please advise your Golf Travel Specialist. Please note strict handicap limits are set and enforced by the club. Men 24 & Ladies 35.

<Day 4 ~ Nairn Golf Club

Play today at Nairn (tbc).  Nairn was among the first of the Highlands courses to make an international name for itself when it hosted the Walker Cup in 1999. It has gone on to host the British Amateur and the Curtis Cup.  Founded in 1887 on an elevated piece of linksland overlooking the Moray Firth, an all-star collection of architects have had a hand in the layout including Old Tom Morris and James Braid.  Most recently, the club commissioned MacKenzie & Ebert for a major modernization including numerous new greens, bunkers and tees.  The result capitalizes on what are some of the very best turf conditions in Scotland – a Nairn trademark.

<Day 5 ~ Carnoustie Golf Links

Today play Carnoustie  (tbc).  The first record of golf played on this links land dates to 1527.  In 1842, a 10-hole course was designed by Alan Robertson followed by an 18-hole course by Old Tom Morris in 1857.  James Braid extended the layout in 1926 which is essentially the links found today. While it is relatively flat, Carnoustie is exposed to the elements. A combination of length and accuracy are required as golfers face narrow corridors from the tee while approach shots demand precision to greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. Arguably the toughest finishing holes in championship golf are found here highlighted by the par-4, 476 yard 14th and the 245 yard par-3 16th. Ben Hogan won The 82nd Open at Carnoustie in 1953. Tom Watson and Gary Player also hoisted the Claret Jug here as has Padraig Harrington and mostly recently Francesco Molinari in 2018.

Bed & Breakfast.

Your Itinerary

The Marine Hotel & Spa is a delightful Victorian turreted mansion, which proudly stands 'chateau-like', overlooking the 16th green of the magnificent North Berwick, West links Golf Course. It commands superb views past the sandy beaches of the firth of Forth to the distant shores of the golfing kingdom of Fife obster boats and yachts sail past, making their way to and from the picturesque sandstone harbor of North Berwick. Under new ownership the hotel is due for an extensive refurbishment ready for the 2021 summer season.

<Day 6 ~ The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers

Golf today on Muirfield (tbc), home to The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, is among the most treasured in the game.  Formed in 1744, is the world’s oldest documented golf club.  It is where the original Rules of Golf were written.  It has hosted The Open on more than a dozen occasions. Old Tom Morris redesigned it in 1891 as a 16-hole layout followed by the addition of two more holes several months later. In 1928, Harry S. Colt and Tim Simpson made alterations that are credited with making this the masterpiece is it today.  Most courses of the day were routed nine holes out and nine back.  Not Muirfield.  Its outward nine runs clockwise around the perimeter of the property while the inward nine runs counter-clockwise inside the outward. This utterly unique layout produces play into constantly changing wind conditions. Please note strict handicap limits are set by the club. Men & Ladies 18.

Lunch in the clubhouse is included.

<Day 7 ~ North Berwick

Play today at North Berwick (tbc). Like St Andrews, this links starts and finishes in town. Golf was played in the area since at least 1672 but the club was formed in 1832 making it the thirteenth oldest in the game.  It came to be in the same way as so many of the early clubs -- in stages.  First it was a 6-hole layout, then a 7, then a 10 which included the famous Redan hole, then in 1877 a full 18.   A renovation lengthened the course in 1895 then again in 1932.  The course is a delight for many reasons not the least of which is how you are challenged by stonewalls, deep bunkers, the usual humps, hollows and burns without having to fight brutal rough.   The course is normally set up to play in around 3 hours so the rough is kept playable.
