The Home of Golf

As the home of whiskey, tartan, bagpipes and much more simple definitions don’t really suit Scotland. However, most importantly, it is also the "Home of Golf" with nearly 600 courses within a relatively small area - more per head of population than anywhere else in the world. To enjoy the Royal and Ancient game of golf there is no place in the world like this. North America and Europe may have some stunning courses but it's Caledonia, with its windy challenge of coastal links and heather hills, that's still the golfer's Mecca.

Where else can you play one of the most challenging courses in world golf, followed by a quiet Highland course, such as the seaside course on the Isle of Colonsay where sheep keep the grass short and where an "honesty box" for green fees is still in operation? Golfing etiquette may be strictly adhered to but you're as likely to chat to the local plumber in the golf club afterwards as the local doctor. Everyone golfs, young and old, man and woman; it's part of the heritage and for golfers a visit to this ‘holy land’ is a must.
