The best resorts for golf breaks in Scotland are a little more than just stunning golf courses. Some of the resorts include facilities for other sports, such as swimming and archery as well as hotels. There are also golfing museums at some of Scotland's more historic golf resorts.
St Andrews is certainly one of Scotland's best golfing destinations as it includes the country's most famous golf course. The 6,721-yard St Andrews Old Course is the spiritual home of golf that has hosted a record 29 U.K. Opens. Visitors can also play rounds at the resort's less daunting New, Jubilee, Eden, Balgrove, Castle and Strathtyrum courses. You can also check out the British Golf Museum that displays thousands of golf items, memorabilia and decorative art.
Turnberry was among the first golfing resorts ever established in Europe. The resort consists of the Ailsa, Robert the Bruce and nine-hole Arran courses. Ailsa is the championship course where golfing legends have played for the Open. Turnberry Adventures is an addition to the resort where visitors can play target sports, such as archery, clay shooting and rifle shooting.
This is another of Scotland's foremost championship golfing venues. There you can play rounds on Carnoustie's beloved 6,941-yard Championship Course that hosted the 2018 U.K. Open. The resort also includes the cheaper Buddon and Burnside golf courses.
