For any serious player, experiencing golf in Scotland is absolutely essential. With over 550 courses within a relatively small area, it is understandable that golfers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to the home of golf.
Scotland's east and west coasts are littered with the spectacular links courses that are so inherently Scottish; famous names from Open Championship history such as St Andrews, Carnoustie and Turnberry offer golf breaks with a slice of history in golf's home, while Gleneagles' Perthshire landscape offers unrivalled beauty.
Though lacking the international repute of the Open Championship rotation, Scotland is bursting with hidden gems - the Green Hotel and Dalmahoy come highly recommended in particular. Hundreds of years of golfing heritage are combined with the legendary Scottish hospitality, ensuring that for those fortunate enough to experience a golf break in Scotland, it will be an incredible experience.
There are also two major golfing events heading to the home of golf in the near future - the 2014 Ryder Cup which will take place at Gleneagles and the 2013 Open Championship which is being hosted my the magnificent Muirfield this year.
