Your Itinerary

The Marcliffe Hotel and Spa, privately owned by the Spence Family, gives its guests the warmest of Scottish welcomes. A prestigious and intimate five-star luxury hotel, the Marcliffe is set on scenically beautiful Royal Deeside against a backdrop of 11 acres of wooded grounds. The hotel is located on the western fringe of the historical City of Aberdeen. A sense of comfort and well-being in their guests is the overriding aim of the Owner, Stewart Spence, Management and staff. The seven suites and 33 bedrooms are all exclusively designed as a restful, elegant refuge for both the business or leisure traveller. For Scottish Beef (aged a minimum of 35 days) and cut to suit, any weight, along with fish, lobster and seafood, you need go no further than the Conservatory Restaurant with an extensive wine list of over 400 bins, including a page dedicated to wines produced by golfers for golfers, plus over 100 Single Malt Whiskies. The peacefulness and tranquillity found at the Marcliffe Hotel makes it very easy to forget that you are just three miles from the City Centre and only eight miles from Aberdeen Airport.

<Day 3 ~ Royal Aberdeen Golf Club

Play Royal Aberdeen (tbc), the sixth oldest club in the world. This is a demanding test of Scottish links golf which runs along the North Sea Shore. The inward nine runs through yellow whins and purple heather and provides a unique contrast to the sand dunes which are dominant in the outward holes. Host venue for the Scottish Open in 2014.

<Day 4 ~ Trump International Golf Links

Today play the Trump International Golf Links (tbc) Designed by Dr Martin Hawtree and opened in July 2012. The course follows a classic pattern of two out and back loops of nine holes.

<Day 5 ~ Carnoustie Golf Links

Today play Carnoustie (tbc), host to the British Open on seven occasions and considered by many to be the most challenging of all Open venues. While the links is relatively flat it is exposed to the elements. A combination of length and accuracy are required from the tee and approach shots demand precision to the greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. Arguably the toughest finishing holes in championship golf, the course gained much praise following a testing but fair set up for the 2007 Open Championship. Please note there is one golf cart available to hire for medical certificate holders. Certain restrictions may apply, please advise your Golf Travel Specialist.

Golf Schedule

Cruden Bay image

A gem of an old-fashioned links which provides panoramic views of the North Sea from various points on the course. The greens are hidden between large sand dunes, and blind shots are featured prominently on this challenging links. The par-3 15th is memorable as it runs parallel to the North Sea, which will swallow a golfer’s slice. Originally designed by Old Tom Morris, the current design made Sports Illustrated senior writer Alan Shipnuck’s top 100 in the world in 2016.
Royal Aberdeen image

The sixth oldest club in the world, this is a demanding test of Scottish links golf which runs along the North Shore. The inward nine runs through yellow whins and purple heather and provides a unique contrast to the sand dunes which are dominant in the outward holes. Host venue for the Scottish Open in 2014. The 18th is a taxing finish. It often plays into the prevailing wind, which makes it unreachable for even the most powerful player.
Trump International image

Hawtree designed a stunning visual challenge with strategic options for Trump International in Scotland. Holes rise to provide panoramic views of the sea, coastline and surrounding area. The course follows the traditional links routing, with two nine hole loops. Hawtree felt there were no weak holes when he finished the course, describing the end result by saying: “It will produce simply the most dramatic, stimulating, invigorating stretch of golf anywhere I have seen in my career”
Carnoustie image

While the links is relatively flat it is exposed to the elements. A combination of length and accuracy are required as golfers face narrow corridors from the tee. Approach shots demand precision to the greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. Arguably the toughest finishing holes in championship golf, errant shots are severely penalized. Ben Hogan won The 82nd Open at Carnoustie in his lone appearance, in 1953. Tom Watson and Gary Player also hoisted the Claret Jug here.


Muirfield image

Legends of the game have raised high the Claret Jug at Muirfield. Vardon, Hagen, Player, Nicklaus, Trevino, Watson, Faldo (twice), Els and Mickelson claimed the Open Championship on this magnificent course that's consistently identified an elite golfer from the era to emerge as Champion Golfer of the Year. Recent enhancements by noted architect Martin Hawtree should enable the course to remain relevant for decades to come. The 18th is one of the best finishing holes in golf, a daunting par-4.


North Berwick image

Like St.Andrews the links starts and finishes in the town. One of Scotland's earliest golf clubs and correspondingly a very traditional links layout located along the Firth of Forth. The West Course requires unusual shotmaking, along with blind shots and play over stone dykes as the sea comes into play on six holes, and is a long, often wet hazard depending on the tide. Features the par 3, 15th 'Redan' which is probably the most frequently copied short hole in the world.
