Golf, Food & Drink in Scotland… 2015 is a special year!

2015 will be the “Year of Food and Drink” in Scotland.

The Year of Food and Drink is a spotlight, celebrating Scotland’s natural larder and quality produce. There is a theme each month so whichever month you may choose to come to Scotland there will be something special going on.
With over 550 golf courses, there are more courses per head of population in Scotland than anywhere else in the world. The range and breadth of courses available means that whatever your level and course preference, you’ll never be far from fairways and greens suited to you. From James Braid-designed courses, to coastal links and Open Championship venues, Scotland is truly a golfer’s paradise.
Whether it’s a visit to the spiritual home of golf at St Andrews to play a round on the oldest and most iconic course in the world, or to Speyside to experience golfing in Malt Whisky country, you’ll be sure to find your perfect place to tee off.
