Scotland Golf Tour – Pilgrimage to the Home of Golf

Fully Escorted by a PGA Professional and an experienced Go Golfing Host

11- 23 July 2019

13 Days – 8 Rounds of Golf

Early Bird Reward: Book by 27 August 2018 to Save £150 pp


Scotland is a destination that resonates with every golfer. With over 600 years of golfing heritage gracing its ancient dunes scattered along rugged coastlines, it is hard not to be overcome as you stand on that first tee. As you prepare to hit that first drive, looking out over the famous links land before you, you just know it will be a golfing memory to be cherished.

You begin your Scotland golf odyssey in vibrant Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. North Berwick will provide a delicious introduction to true Scottish links golf, packed with charm and history dating back to the 17th century. You’ll play Prestwick, the birthplace of THE Open. Following the greats before us, you’ll continue along the Atlantic coastline where Royal Troon, the Open Championship course, calls your name.

Our last stop is the Home of Golf, St Andrews. Our previous rounds will have prepared us for Carnoustie Golf Links, a fearsome championship course that has tested the greats for decades. We’ll play the coastline Kingsbarns Golf Links and the New Course at St Andrews. We can also play as much or as little golf with unlimited golf at The Torrance and Kittocks while we stay at the Fairmont St Andrews.

But what about the Old Course I hear you say? We’ll arrange for all golfers to go into the daily ballot – there is no guarantee but more than 70% of our clients had a great success getting drawn in the past. For those of you looking for a GUARANTEED round on the Old Course, we’ve got you covered. It is strictly limited to 8 golfers, so be quick to secure your spot early!

This is Scotland. This is the Home of Golf, and this is your chance to follow in the footsteps of the greats. While golfers play, non-golfers will be whisked off to sightsee. Come early and join Go Golfing’s Ireland Golf Tour (29 June -11 July).

DAY 1: Thursday 11 July 2019 Edinburgh

On arrival you’ll be met at Edinburgh airport for a private transfer to The Principal Edinburgh, in the gentrified heart of the city. You’ll find something deliciously decadent about staying here with its refined elegance and its historical importance. Tonight meet the crew and your Go Golfing host for a Scottish welcome drink.

This evening, just step out of the hotel and discover the stylish restaurants and bars that grace George Street. Immerse yourself in the local vibe.

Hotel: The Principal Edinburgh

DAY 2: Friday 12 July EDINBURGH

Our first round takes you to a gem of Scottish golf, North Berwick West Links. This is one of the most thrillingly quirky and enjoyable layouts in all of Scotland. It encapsulates the very essence of the Scottish game. It is a true out-and-back links with drives over a beach, stone walls and some really neat greens. Take a caddy, they’ll make your day.

Non-golfers: You’ll go on a guided tour of the city centre to explore the world-famous Edinburgh Castle and discover the museums, restaurants and shops along the Royal Mile.

This evening we sit down for our welcome dinner at the renowned hotel’s restaurant, The Printing Press, showcasing Scottish produce (includes beverages).

Hotel: The Principal Edinburgh (B,D)

DAY 3: Saturday 13 July TROON

This morning, we go on a tour of Edinburgh Old Town and New Town. The Old Town is a labyrinth of cobbled streets, narrow alleyways and hidden courtyards steeped in the city’s history. At its centre is Royal Mile, a remarkable street that stretches from the seat of Edinburgh Castle on Castle Rock down to the grandiose Palace of Holyroodhouse. In the New Town, you’ll be treated to a glimpse of how the city’s upper classes lived in the 18th century.

After lunch, we’ll make our way to Troon where we check into the Marine Hotel, superbly located on the South Ayrshire coastline.

Evening at leisure.

Hotel: Marine Hotel, Troon (B)

DAY 4: Sunday 14 July TROON

Today we play a round at Prestwick Golf Club, birthplace of the Open Championship. It oozes with so much history that if Old Tom – who was its “greens-keeper” for many years – popped out of a gorse bush whacking a feathery, you wouldn’t blink an eye. You’ll find it quirky and great fun to play.

Non-golfers: You’ll indulge in spa treatments at the hotel. Evening at leisure.

Hotel: Marine Hotel, Troon (B)

DAY 5: Monday 15 July TROON

Another day, another golfing dream! This morning we tee it up the historic Royal Troon Golf Club, host to 9 Open Championships. The Royal Troon Clubhouse is an attraction in its own right, with its many historic golfing artifacts – which we recommend you explore with a single malt in hand.

Non-golfers: Today you’ll explore the cliff-top Culzean Castle, see the home of former president Dwight Eisenhower, and gain an insight into the life of national poet Robert Burns at Burns Cottage.

Evening at leisure.

Hotel: Marine Hotel, Troon (B)

DAY 6: Tuesday 16 July KINNETTLES

This morning we check out and continue our journey through the Scottish countryside to Kinnettles. On the way we stop at Lochmond to check out Stirling Castle, known to many as the place Mel Gibson fought for in Braveheart. It is one of Scotland’s grandest castles and the scenery will take your breath away.

After lunch, we check into the 5-star Kinnettles Castle, a privately owned castle once gifted to Alexander Strachan from King Robert III of Scotland at the beginning of the 15th century.

Tonight, we sit down for a private 3-course dinner in the castle before our Q&A with an ex-European Tour player.

Hotel: Kinnettles Castle, Kinnettles (B,D)

DAY 7: Wednesday 17 July KINNETTLES

We hope you’re feeling confident this morning! Today, you play one of the world’s most testing links – Carnoustie Championship Links. With significant Open Championship history behind it – most notably Ben Hogan’s famous 1953 triumph and Jean de Velde’s nuclear meltdown – and one of the finest closing stretches in golf, this course is not for the faint hearted.

Non-golfers: While the golfers are up Barry Burn, you’ll be exploring the seaside suburb of Broughty Ferry, home to fishermen’s cottages, restaurants, pubs and quality boutiques. You’ll also tour the Glamis Castle, the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Evening at leisure.

Hotel: Kinnettles Castle (B)

DAY 8: Thursday 18 July ST ANDREWS

Note: Go Golfing will arrange for all golfers to go into the daily ballot to play the Old Course at St Andrews for the duration of our stay. If successful, you will have the option to play either the Old Course or the course the group is scheduled to play on that day. Additional cost of GBP 190 paid direct to Old Course on day of play. 70% of guests on past tours have secured Old Course tee times via the ballot system.

Today we say “Beannachd leat” to Kinettles to make our way to St Andrews, best known as the Home of Golf. After we check into the Fairmont St Andrews, you’ll head to Kingsbarns Golf Links. A true links course, Kingsbarns was built on the North Sea coastline and has perfect rippling fairways, humps and hollows. It offers a surreal, tiered amphitheatre setting overlooking the sea.

Fairmont St Andrews has two championship courses. Rated at 18th by Condé Nast Traveller in the Best Golf Resort in the world category, the courses offer breathtaking views over the golden beaches and medieval skyline of St Andrews. For the duration of your stay here, you have unlimited golf both at The Torrance and Kittocks courses. Play as little or as much as you’d like.

Non-golfers: You’ll visit the East Neuk and its picturesque fishing villages with red painted roofs and crow-step gables. You’ll also tour Crail Pottery, a small family run coastal pottery located in a beautiful courtyard in the heart of historic Crail.

This afternoon, we’ll all be treated to a private whiskey tour of Kingsbarns Distillery. The story of Kingsbarns Single Malt Scotch Whiskey began with a golf caddie working at Kingsbarns. After golfers kept on asking him to direct them to the nearest distillery, he set in motion a plan to build one in Kingsbarns. And, here it is…

Old Course ballot available today.

Hotel: Fairmont St Andrews (B)

DAY 9: Friday 19 July ST ANDREWS

This morning we step outside our hotel onto The Torrance Course. This isn’t just any ordinary round of golf – you’ll be playing to with pro Scottish PGA Champion, Chris Kelly. This is sure to re up your competitive spirits with prizes and bragging rights up for grabs.

You have access to state-of-the-art indoor training facility featuring Trackman technology. This includes a lesson where you’ll learn the secrets of playing links courses.

Designed by former Ryder Cup and golfing legend Sam Torrance, the course is marked by its deep re-vetted bunkers, large greens and links design. Built on a cliff-top overlooking the North Sea, the dramatic final stretch of holes is especially scenic and challenging with greens that play right along the edge of the water.

Old Course ballot available today.

Non-golfers: You’ll enjoy a guided tour of St Andrews, one of Europe’s finest towns, filled with history, culture, beaches and more.

Hotel: Fairmont St Andrews (B)

DAY 10: Saturday 20 July ST ANDREWS

Today, do as your heart desires. Explore St Andrews at your own pace. There’s loads to do in this town. You may like to visit the British Golf Museum, marvel at St Andrews Cathedral or check out one of the many historic sites. Want more golf? Play as many holes as you want on The Torrance or Kittocks courses.

Old Course ballot available today.

Hotel: Fairmont St Andrews (B)

DAY 11: Sunday 21 July ST ANDREWS

Today, you’ll play the New Course. The “New” course is hardly new. Why the name? The St Andrews Trust came up with the name merely to distinguish it from the “Old” course. Dating back 1895, the New Course is the oldest “new” course in the world and the second course built at the Home of Golf. It has the traditional out and back layout, with the 18th green just to the right of the first tee. It also has, in the great St Andrews tradition, shared fairways and even a double green for the 3rd and 15th holes.

Old Course closed today.

Non-golfers: You’ll tour Scottish distillery and brewery Eden Mill, visit the Renaissance Falkland Palace and check out the largest lowland loch in Scotland, Loch Leven.

Hotel: Fairmont St Andrews (B)

DAY 12: Monday 22 July ST ANDREWS

If you haven’t been drawn in the ballot to play the Old Course yet, today is your last chance, unless you have opted for the GUARANTEED OLD COURSE experience.

The Old Course is a special treat. For many, it is the holy grail of golf. Standing on the 1st tee with the imposing Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews looming behind you and the fairway toward the Swilken Bridge ahead, you know it will be both exhilarating and nerve-racking. It is your turn to walk in the footsteps of every golfing great who ever lived.

For those unable to play the Old Course, Kittocks awaits. It is a long and challenging course that requires nerves of steel to navigate its many holes running alongside the coastline.

Non-golfers: Today you may indulge in some retail therapy or relax at the spa.

Tonight we have a celebratory dinner toasting our victors and new friendships. We dine in St Andrews Private Members Club with the Old Course as a backdrop. Enjoy the sounds of bagpipes on arrival and witness the toast of the famous Haggis. The evening includes beverages. A night to remember…

Hotel: Fairmont St Andrews (B, D)

DAY 13: Tuesday 23 July

Time to farewell our fellow travellers and board our private transfers to Edinburgh airport for our onward flights.

*When booking your flights, please be aware that there is a minimum transfer time of 1hr 20 min between the Fairmont St Andrews and Edinburgh airport.

2019 Ireland Golf Tour – Legends of the Emerald Isle

Fully Escorted by a PGA Professional and an experienced Go Golfing Host

29 JUNE – 11 JULY 2019

13 DAYS – 6 ROUNDS OF GOLF

Come early and join both tours and receive a FREE flight from Dublin to Edinburgh

When it comes to golf, Ireland delivers. This fully escorted golf tour will see you tee off at the ‘must-play’ stars of Irish links golf, which combined, deliver one of the finest golfing experiences. Once you have experienced these great layouts, you won’t be able to stop smiling. Beyond golf, Ireland is a land of unsurpassed beauty and fascination. While it is rugged along its jagged coastline, it is also idyllically serene in the hills and on the grassy plains that seem to stretch forever. No wonder this land has inspired poets and mystics alike.

You’ll begin your golfing journey in Dublin at The European Club (links golf at its best), and wind your way through the very best the south-west has to offer with Old Head (which sits on one of the most spectacular landforms on the planet), Waterville (co-owned by golfaholic American hedge-fund zillionaire), Tralee (it convinces you that Arnold Palmer knows something about golf), Ballybunion (Ireland’s #1 course) and, last but not least, Adare Manor. Owned by another multi-millionaire with ambitions to bring back the Ryder Cup to Ireland for the second time, Adare Manor is set to reopen this year after a full Tom Fazio re-design and Ireland’s most expensive green fees.

You’ll stay in the centre of Ireland’s best cities, soak up Irish culture and hospitality in popular pubs, go back to the ancestral roots of many Australians, take in the breathtaking rural landscape sprinkled with quaint villages, AND have the time of your life playing golf. While golfers play, non-golfers will be whisked off to explore the local area. This is a bucket list tour and “your cup will runneth over.”
