RETURN TO SAMPLE TOURS PAGE

Available from April to October, this six-night, six-round package covers a variety of courses certain to entertain golfers of all skill levels. Golfers have toured the Old Course at St Andrews for more than 600 years, with essentially no changes made to the links since the 18th century. Modern architect Kyle Phillips crafted Kingsbarns into a ‘modern classic’ links in 2000, although golf has been played on this site since 1793. Royal Aberdeen is the sixth-oldest course in the world, stretching along the shore of the North Sea. Trump International, designed by Dr. Martin Hawtree, is routinely considered among the world’s best courses. Cruden Bay, also a fixture in the World’s Top 100, presents a pleasing mixture of blind shots tucked between large sand dunes and panoramic views of the North Sea. Read More.

Deluxe accommodations are available at the Fairmont St Andrews and Marcliffe Hotel & Spa.

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 ~ Kingsbarns Golf Links

Today play Kingsbarns (tbc). Golf dates to a nine-hole layout here in 1793.  It was commandeered by the military during the Second World War not to reappear until Kyle Phillips took an interest in the late 1990s. His design ushered in the era of “modern classics” when it opened in 2000 looking like it had been there for years.  The terrain is links style perfection with tumbling fairways and sandy soil that produce the fine-bladed fescues which are the cornerstone of fast-and-firm playing surfaces that characterise links golf.  The fairways are spacious, the greens are large, exceptional views of the North Sea are found on every hole.
