Golf Courses in Scotland

With historic links courses and staggering parkland layouts, it’s no wonder that Edinburgh is often considered the golf course capital of the world.

The golf courses in Scotland are renowned around the globe and Edinburgh offers the central location from which to discover them all. Muirfield Golf Course, for example, is a classic links course, home to the world’s oldest golf club and it has played host to the Open Championship an incredible 15 times with the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Ernie Els and Nick Faldo gracing its fairways. Indeed the Open will be back at Muirfield in 2013.

It’s not the only championship golf course in close reach, however. Historic courses such as Gleneagles, Carnoustie and St Andrews are also just a short drive away.

If you want to take advantage of all the championship golf courses in Scotland then there is no better location than 123 Royal Mile in Edinburgh: offering you a superb setting immersed in history from which you can explore all that the region has to offer.
