Golfing from East to West: First Stop – Scotland

Edinburgh, Scotland U.K.In order to gain the full experience of golf in all its origin, visit Edinburgh, Scotland. Golf originated in Scotland around the 12th century, with shepherds knocking stones into rabbit holes on the current site of the Old Course at St Andrews. The beautiful city of Edinburgh is built upon striking hills and valleys.

During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Edinburgh and all of it’s splendor was enhanced by the works of a string of illustrious Georgian and Victorian architects. The town of Edinburgh looks less like a city and more like a theatrical backdrop. Pack up your woods, putters and irons and head to Edinburgh to experience the beauty of it all.

GolfCarrick Knowe Golf Club is an 18-hole, par 70 course located in Edinburgh. Located approximately 15 minutes away from 4* Holiday Inn Edinburgh. The golf club has a warm & welcoming reception awaiting all its members and visitors alike. Enjoy a drink or two with your playing partners while enjoying the lovely scenery of the course.

The Turnhouse Golf Club is another course to visit while staying in beautiful Scotland. Located near the 4* Marriot Edinburgh and easy access to the city centre this 6,060 yad, par 69 course is a fair test but a stern one with no two holes the same.

Don’t mind driving an hour to visit the “Home of Golf”? Take a trip to St Andrews Links, where the game began and has been developed and cherished for over six centuries. The Castle Course, located to the south east of St Andrews, consist of the largest public golf complex in Europe.

If you plan on visiting Edinburgh in June, check out the Edinburgh International Film Festival. The twelve day festival presents film premieres, retrospectives on cinematic legends, engaging “In Person” talks and a range of industry events, master classes and workshops that attract audiences of over 55,000 each year.
