Play St Andrews Castle 09:50 a.m.

The newest addition to St Andrews Links, The Castle Course opened in 2008 becoming the seventh course at the Home of Golf and part of the largest public golfing complex in Europe. Set on a rugged cliff-top with spectacular views over St Andrews, The Castle Course offers a memorable golfing experience. The feature hole is the par three 17th, played across a ravine on the edge of the cliffs, into the prevailing wind from St Andrews. It really is an all or nothing hole where anything right is gone forever so the safe play is to aim left, where the contours will hopefully funnel the ball right to the putting surface. 6759 yards par 71.

 

Lunch in the Castle Course Clubhouse included

 

Sightseeing Suggestion: St Andrews Town Tour

Famously known as the Home of Golf and home to Scotland's oldest University, St Andrews is a wonderful historic, seaside destination on many a bucket list. St Andrews has a fascinating history. The cathedral was built in the 12th century and was the largest building in Scotland for seven centuries, with pilgrims flocking here from all over Europe. If you enjoy walking, the Fife Pilgrim Way (64 miles) follows the route pilgrims would have taken finishing in the town. The ruins of the Cathedral and Castle will take you on a journey back in time. The Castle’s underground mine passages and bottle dungeon remain intact and give visitors a real taste of medieval Scotland. It's also home to Scotland's oldest seat of learning, the University of St Andrews, which regularly features in the UK's list of top universities. Everyone also knows of the fairytale royal romance where Wills met Kate!

The most famous golf course in the world will undoubtedly be the highlight of your trip, with a unique tradition more than six centuries old.

Day at leisure

Sightseeing Suggestion: Edinburgh

 

Welcome to Edinburgh, the inspiring capital of Scotland, where centuries of history meet a vibrant, cosmopolitan city in an unforgettable setting. Discover stunning scenery, striking architecture and fine food. Visit the arts and culture attractions of Edinburgh & The Lothians, which include brilliant galleries, fantastic art centres and entertainment venues. Spend the day marvelling at national collections of artworks or exploring smaller galleries. At night, take in a theatre show or drop by a comedy club for a few laughs. Edinburgh & The Lothians offer a fantastic variety of productions staged in amazing theatres. Settle down in a comfy chair and enjoy work by big companies such as Scottish Opera and the National Theatre of Scotland or see leading amateur performances. Explore Edinburgh’s beautifully preserved Old and New Town and discover an incredible array of historical and cultural attractions. Edinburgh's Old Town is a labyrinth of cobbled streets, narrow alleyways and hidden courtyards, all amazingly well preserved and steeped in the city's history. At its centre is the Royal Mile, a remarkable street of Reformation-era tenement buildings leading from the seat of Edinburgh Castle on Castle Rock down to the grandiose Palace of Holyroodhouse. Inspired by the lofty ideals of the Scottish Enlightenment, the neat and ordered grid of the New Town provides an elegant contrast to the labyrinthine design of the Old Town. Its broad streets boast spectacular neoclassical and Georgian architecture, with a wealth of beautiful buildings perfectly preserved since their construction in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Play Carnoustie G.C

 

Held the dramatic "99 British Open" won in a play off by Paul Lawrie after Jean Van De Veld made a mess of the 18th. Walter Hagen described this course as the best course in Britain. Watch out for the Barry Burn - Jean didn't - sand, rough and out of bounds. 18 holes, 6941 yards, par 72.

 

Sightseeing Suggestion: Glamis Castle

 

Glamis Castle is a living, breathing monument to Scottish heritage, hospitality and enjoyment for all. The family home of the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne, Glamis Castle is the legendary setting for Shakespeare's Macbeth, the childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother and the birthplace of Princess Margaret. As soon as you enter the Queen Mother Gates at Glamis and see the Castle's turrets and towers nestled at the end of the mile-long drive, you can't fail to be impressed by its majesty. Steeped in history, Glamis Castle has evolved over the years to create a stunning architectural treasure that is full of vitality to this day. Once inside, every room has its own story and the evolution of the castle and its legendary tales and secrets are brought to life by your own enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guides.

Play Kingsbarns G.C

 

Sir Michael Bonallack then Captain of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club was quoted "Kingsbarns might well be one of the last true links sites capable of development in Scotland. Mere words cannot convey just how extraordinary the place is. It must be seen to be believed, and once seen never forgotten". Kingsbarns Golf Links is situated 7 miles from St Andrews along 1.8 miles of picturesque North Sea coastline, where each hole embraces the sea.

 

Sightseeing Suggestion: Kingsbarns Distillery

 

Start your visit in our exhibition, exploring the history of the name Kingsbarns and by watching our film, explore the local area in the context of the whisky year. You can watch the story of our renovation of our farm steading unfold before seeing our first cask filled at the distillery nestling inside the doocot. Test your sense of smell by identifying the common whisky aromas intriguingly presented in cow horns. Your friendly guide will explain our distillation methods inside the distillery and then take into one of our tasting rooms for a tutored tasting across a selection of our whiskies.
