The skills of the architect and the whims of Mother Nature combined to create a fabulous 18-hole course at Panmure back in 1845, making this one of the oldest golf clubs in the world. If you like the sound of tight fairways, tension-filled carries and fast, undulating greens, this is going to be perfect for you. In 1953, the great Ben Hogan played several rounds at Panmure in order to acclimatise for the Open Championship at Carnoustie, where he won what turned out to be his one and only title here.
The second hole is one of the most interesting. A par-five that seems relatively straightforward from the tee, it often plays longer than its yardage because of the varying winds. There’s out of bounds to worry about, and as if that wasn’t enough the fairway gets narrower as you go along. Accuracy, so often a fey word in Scottish links golf, is definitely the order of the day.
Panmure is close to several other excellent golf courses, including Monifieth and Carnoustie, so it can easily be included on a golfing trip to remember. Scotland’s sunniest city, Dundee, is just a few miles away, so there’s plenty to see and do if you have a day away from the links. Be sure to check out the V&A Dundee and the excellent Discovery Point.
Whether you prefer to stay in rural accommodation amid the glorious countryside or in the heart of the city close to all the best bars and restaurants, you’ll be spoilt for choice by the options that await you. As always, the team at Platinum Golf can advise you on the best hotels, B&Bs, cottages and apartments right across the region, so make sure you contact our specialists before making any bookings.
And of course we can do so much more than find accommodation. We can speak to you about the type of courses that match your likes and dislikes, and that are within your budget. We’ll find tee times that fit in with your schedule and we can arrange transportation for you and your friends, too. We can even organise sightseeing trips if you wish.

Thanks for arranging such a memorable trip. We loved all the courses but especially the Castle and Royal Dornoch. The accommodation was excellent and we appreciated all the restaurant reservations.
Overall, an excellent trip.

Hi Lynda & Stuart
We are back on home turf. We had a fantastic trip. No glitches anywhere except the rainout at County Sligo – but we can’t control the weather.
The four courses we played were all in great condition with super nice .
St Anne’s was a great start, the easiest of the four for me but a very nice lynx course.
The hotel accommodation Slieve Russell, grounds and amenities were superb.
Stuart you sure know how to put together courses for a golf tour and Lynda the accommodation at both the RIU and Slieve Russell were top notch. …great job.
Thank you for the welcoming gifts. You sure were generous.
This trip was sure worth the two year wait.
Thanks so much,
Well it was great to see you and Stuart again, that was a great evening! Thank you to both of you for an amazing trip, everyone has been talking about how great it was! It may be possible that the wives had more fun that the guys did, they’re already talking about their own golf trip without the husbands. They’ve really been bitten by the golf bug, especially my wife!!
Dear Stuart & Lynda,
A most heartfelt “Thank You” for your planning, coordinating & customer service in making our 2022 Scotland Golf Trip so memorable! Your detailed itinerary, efforts and professionalism were nothing short of “World Class” and much appreciated !
Personally, it was so enjoyable revisiting Scotland after a 20 year absence, but even more enjoyable having our group experience for the first time the magic of St. Andrews & Scotland…you have a remarkable & beautiful country.
It was a pleasure meeting you both and again appreciate your efforts to ensure we had a great vacation! We will not hesitate to refer others or use Platinum Golf for future Golf Trips…Ireland 202?
All the best for health, happiness and prosperity!
Thank u so much for looking after us overall and especially my mid-week disruption
Our arrival and playing experience at St Patrick’s Links was stellar.
The Rosapenna Thing is on par with both Bandon Dunes and Cabot Cape Breton as a one facility golfing heaven. Big brawny links tracks modernized with welcoming landing areas in the fairways.
At St Patrick’s makeshift but stylish golf shop* and checkin I had the great pleasure of netting John and Frank Casey…. So young they are, and so enthusiastic and engage-able. Lovely gents growing Rosapenna’s reputation.
So it goes .. cheers to Ireland, cheers to Platinum Golf Scotland
Stuart: The welcome package ,very thoughtful and the whiskeys are/were delicious!
We are back safely, thanks. It was lovely to see you both get together and share a We had such a good time in both Scotland and Ireland and look forward to visiting again.
The Tralee, and Waterville courses were amongst the best courses we have ever played, ranking up there with Dumbarnie and the Old course. The Island course was equally beautiful, but both of us found the dunes a challenge.
As for accommodations, we really enjoyed being in the heart of Dublin’s Temple District. Thank you for such a well planned and organized trip. We created many wonderful memories, that we’ll cherish for a lifetime. We really appreciate your help to make this trip so memorable.
Debra and I just want to send you a note thanking you for helping create a great vacation to the UK. We have a fantastic time learning and experiencing the UK.
All aspects of the trip went great in and we will not hesitate to ask you to book another trip for us in the future or to recommend you to others.
We’re on our way to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind note, I absolutely loved every minute of it, even when I was in the rough and losing balls! The program you put together was everything we could have expected and your customer service was perfect; thank you for going above and beyond…
Stuart and Platinum Golf Scotland provided a terrific itinerary for a spectacular golf and whisky (and, of course, food) experience in Scotland! The checking in, touching base, and above the call of duty service provided during our trip was great! No doubt that they would be a go to for any future travel to the UK. Thanks a bunch for making it an experience of a lifetime!
We have had a fabulous time here this week so many thanks to you and Stuart for doing a fabulous job organising it all.
