Arrive Edinburgh or Glasgow Airport where you driver will be waiting or collect your rental car. Drive north through the Cairngorms National Park to the town of Inverness where you will base for 3 nights.
Castle Stuart’s goal is to add to the rich fabric of golf in the Scottish Highlands – a fabric made rich by Royal Dornoch, Nairn, Brora, and many other fine Scottish golf clubs. A setting and topography that combine to make the golf experience visually memorable; the golf holes are 18 compositions that place the notable landmarks of the Moray Firth directly into the player’s perspective. A host to the Scottish Open on the European Tour, this "new" links is an instant classic. This course was the venue when Phil Mickelson won the Scottish Open the week prior to wining the Open Championship at Muirfield in 2013.
Nestling on the shores of the Moray Firth lies one of Scotland's finest Golf Courses. This traditional Scottish golf links course was created from a Highland wilderness of gorse and heather, and tests the talents of professional and amateur alike. Founded in 1887, it is now one of the best courses in Scotland, and has hosted a large number of important championships including the 1999 Walker Cup and 2012 Curtis Cup.
After golf today, transfer south to Deeside and Aberdeen.
Cruden Bay is known for its rolling terrain and memorable holes such as the par-3 4th. Originally designed by Tom Morris of St Andrews and Archie Simpson in 1899 and re-designed in the 1920’s by Tom Simpson and Herbert Fowler; it is either quirky or a masterpiece but one thing is for sure, this is one that will linger long in the memory and is a guaranteed fun time.
A championship links course founded in 1870 but where golf was played since 1589, this is Royalty! Perhaps the best front nine in Scottish links golf. It, Cruden Bay and Trump International all have dune-terrain unlike other parts of Scotland and are true tests of golf-skill and course management.
Perhaps the best course to have been built in Scotland in the last 100 years. The immense dunes here and traditional north-south routing, make this course memorable and a delight to play. The 229 yard par-3 13th is a classic; as is the view from the back-tee on 18.
After golf today, transfer south to a hotel closer to your departure airport. St. Andrews is a possible base for tonight and anyone wishing to extend their trip for a few days could perhaps take a shot at the Old Course St. Andrews.
