DAY 2 – GOLF AT DUNBAR GC

In the words of one international golf reviewer, a visit to play golf at Dunbar provides ‘just about everything you can ask for’. That is certainly true if a challenging links course, stunning scenery and a friendly clubhouse are the elements you think make up the perfect golfing experience.

Based on a take-your-breath-away landscape, take on a course where all of the major Scottish Championships have been played. Battling the sea wind to hit the well defined holes following the coastal contours guaranteed a new expe-rience every round. Light breezes transform the course into a serious challenge.

Ranked No 39 in Scotland this will be good warm up game to ease the jet lag and prepare for the great courses to come.

DAY 6: Play Nairn GC

Ranked number 19 in the list of Top 100 Courses in Scotland 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.

The Nairn Golf Club’s truly remarkable feature is that from every hole you can see the Moray Firth and the golden col-ouring and changing lights of the Black Isle. Even more extraordinary – only too easily you can strike the ball into the sea on every one of the first seven!

What delights the visitor and member alike is the Scottish-ness of the links. Other than in a strong westerly, it leads you in gently before demanding accurate driving and precision second shots. Gorse is a hazard yet, even more challenging than the humps and hollows that lurk in the fairways, is the trickery of the greens!

DAY 7: Play Castle Stuart GC

Castle Stuart is one of the best golf courses in Scotland, providing a good challenge for talented golfers while being playable for high handicappers, both of whom will enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery the country has to offer.

The opening three holes on each nine run away from the clubhouse along the edge of a raised beach by the side of the Moray Firth, offering spectacular views across the water to the Black Isle. Another eye-catching feature through-out the entire layout is the use of expansive, wild-looking waste bunker areas to fringe the sand capped-fairways and green sites, adding a wonderfully natural feel to the course.

Ranked No 9 GC in Scotland you are in for a treat today!

DAY 8: Play Royal Dornoch

Royal Dornoch Golf Club (No 3 in Scotland) is spellbinding. It seems to mesmerise amateur and professional golfers from all over the world and many make the pilgrimage to this natural links at some point in their lives.

Let’s be honest, for most people, it takes a concerted effort to get to Dornoch. It’s the timeless setting that makes Royal Dornoch such a pleasing place to play golf. It’s wild, isolated and, at the same time, absolutely beautiful; there’s the blaze of colour in early summer when the gorse is in flower. The pure white sandy beach divides the links from the Dornoch Firth and it all feels very humbling.

Ostensibly the course itself is pretty straightforward: it’s an out-and-back layout. Many of the greens, though, are built on natural raised plateaux making approach play especially challenging.

DAY 9: Play Brora GC

As Brora Golf Club (N0 29) enters its 130th year, there are many reasons why the golf club has been so successful. The golf course design is recognised as being one of James Braid’s finest pieces of work. The green staff work tirelessly to preserve the original design, whilst presenting a course that is regularly acclaimed for its quality. The perfect balance between challenge and fun, and in a breath-taking setting.

DAY 10: Play Royal Aberdeen

After breakfast we will travel 2 hours across to Aberdeen to play Royal Aberdeen.

Royal Aberdeen is a traditional out and back links running along the shore of the North Sea and is regarded by many as having the finest first nine holes in golf. The first tee is under the clubhouse window and the fairway heads straight for the sea. The next eight holes run parallel to the shore, weaving their way through towering sand dunes. You then turn back, heading for the clubhouse. The back nine holes play on higher ground and provide stunning North Sea views.

Ranked No 8 in Scotland today will be a real pleasure depending on the winds!

After golf we will travel to the Marcliffe Hotel which will be our base for the last 3 days of the tour.

Hotel: Marcliffe Hotel and Spa
Get the celebrity treatment with world-class service at The Marcliffe Hotel and Spa. Situated in Aberdeen, the hotel offers beachfront accommodation and features various facilities, such as a garden, a fitness centre and a bar.

DAY 11: Play Cruden Bay

Cruden Bay is an inspirational golf course, regarded by some as quirky and considered by others as a masterpiece. Either way, this is a thrilling place to play golf because the designers used the original lie of the land to fantastic effect. Rugged links land, pebble-dashed with sand dunes as high as three-storey buildings. Elevated tees cut high into the dunes, humped and hollowed fairways bumping their way along to punchbowl greens, nestling in attractive dells. And all set against the backdrop of the steely North Sea.

Cruden Bay winds its way in a figure of eight through towering dunes. Many of the holes are secluded from each other by the sandhills, enabling that wonderful feeling of intimacy. There are panoramic sea views, a stunning beach, driveable par fours, blind drives, back-to-back par threes. That’s entertainment!

Ranked No 11 in Scotland this will be a dramatic way to end our tour.

7pm: Tonight there will be a Presentation dinner and Drinks to celebrate the end of what will be a wonderful tour and hopefully celebrating an Australian “Open” winner!
