The Open Championship Tour



The Open Championship is synonymous with the story of golf and during this pilgrimage to Scotland you will play no less than seven courses that have hosted the tournament. This is effectively a journey through the history of links golf, the oldest and purest form of the game. 


The golfing odyssey begins at Musselburgh Old Links, one of the world’s oldest and host of six very early Opens, and tracks the architectural development of links golf through to the likes of Kingsbarns, an icon of modern seaside golf. En route, The Old Course at St Andrews awaits. No other piece of golfing turf has had such a significant effect on the creation of courses worldwide as The Old, and no tour of Scotland is complete without pegging it up at the Home of Golf. 


Even the most well travelled golfer is likely to feel the effect of the centuries of history embedded in the turf in front of the Royal & Ancient’s imposing clubhouse. A wide fairway it is - very, very wide - but if you pause to consider the footsteps in which you follow, and the Old Course’s first hole has a habit of narrowing in the mind’s eye. Being guided around this most hallowed of links land is a golfing experience without equal.



Throughout, the accommodation and hospitality is first class: Greywalls, The Old Course Hotel and Trump Turnberry rank as the finest lodges for international golfers that Scotland has to offer.


Greywalls, built in 1901 according to a design by Sir Edwin Lutyens, is a glorious Edwardian country house that overlooks Muirfield’s 9th and 18th holes. Unique furnishings and period features are characteristic of the collection of 23 rooms and suites, while guests can expect fine dining courtesy of the onsite Chez Roux restaurant.


The Old Course Hotel and Trump Turnberry follow suit in terms of their outlook; panoramic views of historic Open Championship golf courses serve as the canvas for genuinely opulent accommodation. These resorts are unique in their positions, adjacent to The Old Course and Ailsa Course, respectively, but the story doesn’t end there; inside each are sumptuous guest rooms, tea rooms, whisky bars, gourmet restaurants and luxury spa centres. 


Travelling through Scotland and its richly varied landscapes, it also becomes clear that there is much to experience away from its golf courses. Historic castles and battlefields are a nod to the long and, at times, turbulent history of the country. The cosmopolitan cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow represent chances to see and feel a modern Scotland, while those with a nose for the country’s most export can plan in visits to a distillery or three.
