6 Nights | 6 Rounds including Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart & Trump International




GET A QUICK QUOTE℠



RETURN TO SAMPLE TOURS PAGE

A six-night, six-round trip that covers the fine courses and majestic beauty in the north of Scotland, including an array of memorable links. Nairn, like so many courses in the region, traces its roots to descendants Old Tom Morris and James Braid, along the shores of Moray Firth, 20 miles northeast of Inverness. Royal Dornoch is the most northerly championship layout in the United Kingdom, and the home of legendary architect Donald Ross is considered the ultimate ‘thinking golfer’s course.’ Castle Stuart opened in 2009, delivering six holes along the shoreline while the rest of the course sits atop a terrace, providing views of the Moray Firth and Black Isle beyond. Trump International sprawls along a three-mile stretch of Scotland’s scenic North Sea. Read More.

Deluxe accommodations are available at the Marcliffe Hotel & Spa and The Kingsmills Hotel.

A VIP Coach with Concierge Driver is available for parties of eight, while self-drive options are available for parties of four.

<Day 2 ~ Cruden Bay Golf Club

Today play the outstanding Cruden Bay (tbc). Those who make their way to the Highlands by way of Aberdeen will not want to miss Cruden Bay.  This is an old-fashioned gem of a links with greens and fairways hidden between massive dune, driveable par fours, blind shots and of course gorgeous view of the North Sea. There is evidence that golf started here in the 18th century but it was in 1899 when the original layout by Old Tom Morris and Archie Simpson opened for play at 5,290 yards.  The course was redesigned in 1926 which essentially stands today playing with more than an additional 1,000 yards.  “Port Erroll”, the 193-yard 4th, played from an elevated tee to an elevated green, will get your attention. Cruden Bay is a regular among the world’s top 100 clubs.

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). Founded in 1780, this is the sixth oldest golf club in the world.  It has hosted The Senior Open won by Tom Watson and the Scottish Open won by Justin Rose. It is a tale of two nines.  The outward holes are recognized as nine of the best pure links in the game. The first plays from beside the clubhouse directly to the North Sea.  The next eight run parallel to the shore through a valley of dunes.  The inward nine play on high ground where the full force of the wind regularly wreaks havoc. Eighteen is a serious par four requiring two of you best to simply reach the green. Royal Aberdeen is decidedly old school so bear in mind shorts are not allowed for play and you’ll need a coat and tie to visit the clubhouse.

<Day 4 ~ Trump International Golf Links

Today play the Trump International Golf Links (tbc). Imagine Dr. Martin Hawtree’s delight, the third generation golf course architect with many achievement to his credit including his service as the R&A’s go-to for modifying Open venues, when he was chosen to design the newest American-inspired golf course in Scotland this century along a spectacular 3-mile stretch of North Sea coastline with almost unlimited resources.  Trump International Golf Links may represent his finest hour.  The round combines high ground with striking views before descending into secluded valleys between monstrous dunes.  There are five tees on every hole, except the two that have seven.  There are eighteen fully revetted bunkers on the 18th!  It is a sight to behold.

<Day 5 ~ 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.

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 6 ~ 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 7 ~ 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.
