With the approval from the wife, I am beginning the initial planning for a Scotland golf trip in 2020. I used all the bullets in my gun to persuade her, she agreed, so I am off and running. The trip will be for probably no more than 8 golfers, with varying ability. I know there are handicap restrictions at certain courses and we all meet those. We are planning on making the trip in April, with the understanding that this is the shoulder season over there. Weather “should” be ok but we aren’t paying premium prices or playing on overrun courses (someone tell me if I’m wrong). We’ll probably spend 6 days (+/- 1 day) and will only want to play 36 maybe 2 of those days. With that being said I am looking for places to stay, courses not to miss, etc.; here are the courses I am looking at playing, but can be persuaded to change if a vigorous argument is made.
- Old Course
- Another St. Andrews course (since you have to play one in order to get on Old Course, correct?)
- North Berwick
I appreciate any info/help. I’m the one that always plans our stateside golf trips, but this is the BIG one and I want to get it right. Thanks!
