Scotland Golf Experience
…trips designed to fit your style—from B & B’s to Five Star Castles—and everything in between. From the most famous courses to the secret gems that have been only partially uncovered…
Scotland has become a pilgrimage for golfers as St. Andrew’s is universally recognized as the birthplace of golf. Playing St. Andrew’s can be difficult as there is such tremendous demand. Nonetheless, with advance planning the tee times are available.
If you are not one of the few who planned early enough to have a guaranteed tee time at St. Andrew’s—don’t despair. We can design Scotland golf itineraries that will let you experience Scottish golf at its very best.
The Golf Group designs custom trips for groups of any size and we will create the itinerary that is right for you. Tell us about the experience you are looking for and we will make it happen. The concentration of courses in the different areas of Scotland allows for some great itinerary options, and that keep hotel changes are at a minimum.
Even though golf is a year round activity in most of Scotland, prime time for golf trips is from late April to mid-October. The weather is fairly consistent from June to September—but as you can see from the table—there is not much variance in temperature throughout the season. August tends to be the busiest month and September is often especially tough access to the courses in the St. Andrew’s area.

No matter when you plan your trip, you will have plenty of daylight to get your rounds in as you can play golf until 10 p.m. on some of the summer nights.
