Europe A Royal Heritage

The United Kingdom is a special destination for many reasons, but none more than its world-class golf courses. Consistently ranked among the Top 10 golf courses in the world, the links are just the beginning. England offers a strong and immensely viable golf experience with over 1,900 golf courses while Scotland is revered as the home of golf. Indeed, this is where it all began well over 600 years ago. And Ireland, of course, has a history dating back beyond the 19th century. In a modern world where new, often extraordinarily expensive, courses open up around the globe every year, it's interesting to note that many golfers outside Britain and Ireland still dream of visiting these island nations to experience golf in its most authentic environment.

Scotland is simply The Home of Golf. And while there is much is to explore in this ancient country with its proud heritage, for golfers, it would almost be sacrilege to not play one of the traditional links courses that true aficionados swear by. Playing just those listed in the world’s top 100 would require more than two weeks at the very least, and it is always advisable to divide and conquer the regional clusters in multiple installments, starting with St. Andrews & Fife, East Lothain near Edinburgh, the South West Coast including Kintyre and finally the utterly romantic Highlands and Aberdeen.

Ireland: a small country with a big reputation, helped along by a breathtaking ancient landscape and fascinating, friendly people, whose lyrical nature is expressed in the warmth of their welcome. The golf aspect of the country is just as rich, and varied and poetic. Undoubtedly, golf in Ireland dates back way beyond the ninteenth century but records are scant. However, there is no doubt whatsoever that Ireland possesses many of the finest golf courses in the world and is quite rightly one of the world's premier golf destinations thanks to household names such as Ballybunion, Lahinch and Portmarnock.
