From championship courses to hidden gems, you are never too far away from bunker, green and nineteenth hole.

Using our expert local knowledge, experience and personal service we can tailor-make a golfing holiday to suit your individual requirements. We know how to add golf to just about any holiday on our website. Booking flights, hand-picked hotels, car or club hire, and arranging personalised itineraries is what we do best. Perhaps arrive in style in a classic or sports car – we know which ones have room for clubs (and picnic baskets) in the boot. Travelling with a non-golfer? We will organise an alternative itinerary to keep everyone happy. Our local knowledge means that we can plan a golfing holiday or a holiday with golf for you and your party throughout Scotland, Ireland and the North of England. Golf and whisky are natural partners – for example, enjoy both in Speyside or on Islay.

You can even play golf on the Outer Hebrides. Askernish on South Uist, first laid out in 1891, is just one stunning example. Machrihanish on the Kintyre peninsula has one of the finest opening holes in world golf, as you drive across the beach – the views across the bay are stunning. You can play golf at midnight on the Orkney Islands in high summer, or play on the oldest surviving golf course in the world whilst enjoying a city break in Edinburgh. In contrast, Gleneagles, nestling in Perthshire countryside, still basks in the limelight of the 2014 Ryder Cup and boasts three challenging courses, while St Andrews is the world’s self-appointed Home of Golf.

Favourite golfing spots in Ireland include Royal Portrush on the Antrim Coast, Royal County Down and another former Ryder Cup host, the K Club in Kildare.
