Scotland

Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. Scotland is mainly surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and west, the North Sea to the northeast and the Irish Sea to the south. Scotland also has more than 790 islands, most of them located in the archipelagos of the Hebrides and the Northern Isles. The Old Course at St Andrews in Fife is considered the oldest golf course in the world and known throughout the world as 'The Home of Golf'. That name was given to St Andrews because the sport was first played on the Links course at St Andrews as early as the start of the 15th century!

Managed a quick nine hole before the Scottish winter weather descended. Beautiful wee course although we did find it a bit difficult to find our direction. More signs would be helpful for us tourists. Stunning scenery especially enjoyed the high up tee shots looking over the sea.

Dundonald Links
What a great links course! The wind is (of course) a great influence on your game and club selection here. You really need to stay away from those nasty bunkers as they mess up your score. I played in November and the course was in great shape with good greens. Tight lies in the fairway, but that is just the time of year. The new clubhouse and facilities are really good. …

Wir haben den Old Course im Rahmen eines Winter Packages gespielt. Obwohl es Anfang November war und 2 Tage zuvor stark geregnet hatte, war der Platz in einem sehr guten Zustand. Das Personal ist sehr nett. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Zusätzlich zum Old Course konnten wir den New und Jubilee Course spielen. Auch diese Plätze lohnt es sich zu spielen.

Kittocks Course
Na eerst de new course en de old course te hebben gespeeld was Kittocks het toetje. Niets kan tippen aan het spelen op de old course maar Kittocks is spectaculair om te spelen. Mooie afwisselende holes, mooie vergezichten, holes aan zee, en heuvelachtig. 65 pond inclusief trolley is een meer dan redelijke green fer.

Old CourseNew Course
Eerste dag de new course gespeeld. Hard werken met windkracht 6/7. Baan is mooi en ligt tussen de old course en jubilee course in. Natuurlijk geweldig om te spelen, maar met deze wind ben je meer bezig niet om te vallen dan te golfen. Tweede de old course day. Echt geweldig. Is de baan echt heel veel mooier dan de new course? Valt eigenlijk wel. Toch een wereld van versch…

Old Course
Playing at the Old Course is an amazing experience. You can feel the history of the club and the excitement of every player on the course. The course itself is not the most spectacular in the world, but just being there, seeing the famous pot bunkers, hitting your driver over the hotel on the 17th, standing on Swilcon Bridge and arriving on the 18th green... it is just am…

Kinghorn Course
Moeilijke, korte, heuvelachtige, bijzonder oud en bijzonder baantje. Ook weer geweldig in zijn soort. Het uitzicht is geweldig de hele ronde lang. Greens zijn uitstekend. Holes zijn niet makkelijk. Het is een stevige wandeling. Greenfee is zeer toegankelijk.

New Course
I played the new course in a very strong wind which made it very hard to get the ball where you want it. But playing at St Andrews is a special experience and the score is not so important. The new course is not spectacular, but the fairways and greens are fantastic and the views are amazing. The famous bunkers are deep and hard to play, as expected. In general, a great e…
