Scotland truly is the Home of Golf! The game was born in Scotland, has thrived on Scottish soil and continues to develop and evolve as one of the nation’s most valuable assets.
Scotland isn’t called the ‘Home of Golf’ for nothing - it is the country that gave the Royal and Ancient game to the world 600 years ago and it’s widely believed there’s nowhere better to enjoy a round of golf.
History tells us that golf burgeoned on the East Lothian coast, in the towns of Fife and on the south-west coast in and around Prestwick. Clubhouses in some quarters are decorated with pictures and memories from yesteryear of Old Tom Morris and James Braid, the men who helped create the early increase in the game’s popularity. Fast forward six centuries and the game continues to thrive.
Scotland is best famed for its links courses. Open Championship venues such as Royal Troon, St Andrews Old Course, Muirfield, Carnousti and Turnberry entice golfers from around the world and never fail to inspire and amaze.
What makes Scotland so special is that golf is accessible to everyone. You too can play from behind the green at the ‘Road Hole’, go for glory at Troon’s remarkably tempting ‘Postage Stamp’ or attempt to match par on ‘Hogan’s Alley’ at Carnoustie.
