Southwest of Scotland Experience

Scotland

  • Nights 5
  • Days 4
  • Rounds of Golf 4

The Southwest of Scotland is one of the best golf destinations in the world, with nearly 50 courses to choose from including 5 of the UK’s top 100 courses and 3 Open Championship venues. With so many options, you can choose any style of play: Links golf, Parkland golf, or even golf on an island! The choice is yours!

With such beautiful landscapes, you could be tempted to skip the golf and simply explore your surroundings, but that would be an injustice to the quality of the courses that the Southwest has to offer. Three Open Championship courses, wonderfully welcoming old links layouts with pot bunkers, widely loved public courses, and so much more await in.. The Southwest of Scotland.

Before You Travel

What to Pack for GOLF:

  • A quality rain suit, pants and jacket is a MUST! Zero Restriction and FootJoy are quality brands. If you do not own such apparel, it is expensive and note, you get what you pay for. So purchase wisely as you’ll be thankful you have it if you get a good lashing!
  • Rain gloves – a must when playing in the rain. They come in pairs and for good reason. A wet hand on a wet grip will only result in tears as your ball, and maybe your club too, will undoubtedly end up in the fescue.
  • A good ski hat – yes, not what you typically think of for golf but because most courses are on the ocean, the water temps are still only in the upper 50’s to 60 degrees. Combine these factors with some wind blowing onshore and then throw in some rain and it is a recipe for being miserable. A nice warm hat that can cover your ears could be your best friend.
  • A proper golf umbrella – a must as normal summer weather means intermittent showers that come and go throughout a 4 hour round. You can generally see what is coming so instead of changing in and out of rain gear, you can use a good sturdy wind-resistant umbrella to shelter you until the showers pass.

Now, what about sunshine? Yes, they do have it in Scotland and when it comes out especially in the late spring and summer months, it can be quite warm to hot. Therefore, a few pairs of golf shorts are in order. Golfers have been known to wear shorts under their rain pants simply because the extremes from shower to sunshine can be very dramatic – so this is sometimes the best approach.

All in all, these are the best tips to best prepare you for what we hope is a memorable experience golfing in Scotland.

  • Language: English is the official language of Great Britain, but Scottish Gaelic is still spoken in some of the rural areas.
  • Currency: The official currency is the British pound sterling (£), which is divided into 100 cents. The U.S. dollar buys approximately £0.80 pounds. Please check the current exchange rate before traveling, as it changes daily.
  • Electricity: The electrical current in England is 230V and the cycle is 50Hz and you will need a converter if you have appliances that don’t accept this voltage.
  • Internet: Internet connections and WiFi spots are found throughout the country. Most major hotels provide good accessibility.
  • Passport/Immigration: Visitors from the United States (and most other Western nations) are not required to have a visa to enter the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland). A valid passport is required for entry.
  • Drinking Water: Tap water throughout Ireland is treated and purified and is safe to drink.
  • Time Zone: The United Kingdom is not on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) all year. During Daylight Saving Time (DST) the correct time zone is British Summer Time (BST). The UK observes DST from March to October every year. During BST (GMT +1), when it is noon in New York, it is 5 p.m. in London.
  • Peak Season: Although visitors arrive year-round, Scotland’s peak tourist season is in the summer months: May through October.
