Scotland is well known as the home as golf and with over 500 golf courses it’s easy to see why! If you are a golf fanatic then you would have always wanted to play Scotland’s world renowned courses or even its hidden gems. It’s currently an interesting time for golf in Scotland and considering the value for money, range of golf courses and most importantly the quality of the courses Scotland should be your first choice for a golfing holiday. As a keen golfer I have played on many courses all over the world but particularly in Scotland and one golf resort in particular.

The Westin Turnberry Resort enjoys a spectacular coastal setting with breathtaking views and beautiful scenery. Based above the Ayrshire coastline the resort is world class and based in a gorgeous 800 acre estate. With the lighthouse in the distance and the sea next to you whilst you play, if you are looking for a better course in the world this one takes some beating.

You can play on a choice of two championship courses, an excellent nine hole course or at the Colin Montgomerie links golf academy. The Aisla Championship course will also be the venue for the Open Championship in 2009 so you know that the course has some pedigree. But it’s not just left to the world’s best. Every year, thousands of golfers ranging from pro to novice enjoy the thrill of playing on a championship course. The Kintyre Championship course is well known around the world for it’s links golf. The Arran is a challenging course which has been designed to pass on information and tips about links golf and how Colin Montgomerie plays. There is also a 12 hole pitch and putt course available for people who may not be confident enough to play on the other courses.

After a long day out at a golf resort you will be looking for a place to stay and relax before taking on the rest of the courses the next day. There are many places to stay maybe a the Turnberry Hotel or a Caravan Site Scotland.
