Way back in 1857, a group of golfing enthusiasts met in the Red Lion Inn and decided to create a golf club, and what a utopia they made! The result was Prestwick Golf Club, an iconic venue that’s steeped in character. Three years later, the opening shot in the very first Open Championship was played here, and the rest, as they say, is history.
In this part of the world, true golfing aficionados can tour the country playing some of the finest courses in the world, and Prestwick is one of the most popular of them all. It offers 18 dramatic holes, featuring rippled fairways, speedy greens and rugged landscapes. If you can avoid the high dunes, the pot bunkers and the railway line, you should be able to manufacture a good score!
The 17th in particular is a must-play. The oldest existing hole in championship golf, ‘Alps’ requires accuracy all the way from tee to green. If your approach to the green falls short, you could find yourself in the infamous Sahara bunker.
As you might expect from an area so steeped in history, sightseeing trips are extremely popular here. Be sure to visit St John’s Tower and Kingencleugh Castle, and take a walk along the Fullarton Fairy Trail if there’s time. Here at Platinum Golf, our experts can arrange sightseeing tours for you and your party, as well as accommodation options and of course tee times at all your favourite courses.
Anyone who has ever arranged a golf tour will know how stressful the process can be, but you can leave everything to the specialists who really know the area. Call Platinum Golf today on 07711282442 and let us know where you want to play, and we can take things from there. Sometimes the more complex things are best left to the experts.
Marc and I would like to thank you for the beautiful journey you prepared. Everything was well organized, timing, convenience, réservations, etc. All the people we met were so kind to us that we felt just like home. Golf in Scotland is the best place and this east coast is just gorgeous we leave the country with the ambition and hope to be back.
It was so nice to meet you and Stuart in person as well. Clearly you take great interest in your clients’ satisfaction, and it shows. As we may have mentioned, we had never been to Scotland or the UK and this trip exceeded all of our expectations. And as lovers of golf, the experience was utterly unforgettable. Thank you again for the lovely gifts you shared with us upon arrival.
We loved our trip. If we booked it again tomorrow (we wish we could!) we wouldn’t change a thing except maybe substitute a different hotel for Loch Green. Thank you for making our “bucket list” trip so special.
Thanks again for a fantastic trip !
We look forward to the next one !
We have had a great time in London too although it’s been a bit overwhelming! What a city!
Dear Lynda Yes we got the bag tags, thank you very much. And thank you for the great organisation. Everything went absolutely smoothly and even though we had a bit of an adventurous journey home with flight delays and cancellations we returned home with many great memories of a fantastic trip.
We will get in touch when we plan our return trip.
Kind regards Fiete
Thank you for this wonderful experience and for helping to make this trip a dream come true for all of us. We can’t wait to come back to Scotland!
Our heartfelt thanks to you and Stuart for the holiday of our dreams and especially for Johannes. It was beyond his expectations (and mine) and we had such a beautiful time together. The true test of Johannes’ love for Scotland was his purchase of an entire kilt outfit with all the bits and bobs, I nearly fainted –I am truly living in Outlander. I almost fell over, we expect our kilts in December or January, and photos will be sent, I promise
I cannot express enough how grateful I am to you both, every detail and every moment was fabulous! We are eating shortbread with proper marmalade and relish our memories.
Hi Lynda & Stuart,
First, back home safe & sound.
From the bottom of my heart, the two of you are absolutely amazing and delightful. But more than that, so capable. A truly glitch less nine days. So fun!
Our Scottish Golf and Whisky experience was wonderful! Thank you for putting together such a fabulous itinerary. Everything was so well thought out and perfectly timed
Basically, you put together a trip we will always remember. Thank you for everything. We would highly recommend you to our friends who are interested in a Scottish golf experience.. Also, thank you for the lovely welcome gifts and taking the time to meet us that Sunday morning at St. Andrews.
When I asked Kevin to describe the trip in one word he said “perfect”, Glynnis said “spectacular” and my word was “awesome”. Pretty simple but the words fit our pictures (almost 1,000) and our memories.
Thank you Lynda and Stewart, the trip was excellent in every way
We got the photo from Panmure and it is so good! Definitely going on my office wall!
My boys and I loved Panmure. As we have discussed before, it is exactly the kind of course and club I love to visit when here. While all the trophy courses are wonderful, they do have a bit of commercialism that I like to ignore. None of that at all at Panmure, just pure golf and pure class.
Thanks for these photos, they are great.
All my best and thanks from my entire family,
