A number of Scotland’s courses have hosted the Open Championship, and one of the most celebrated is Royal Troon. Located on the coast of South Ayrshire in the west of the country, it’s just a short drive to Glasgow with its historic buildings and lively nightlife. For many golfing afficionados, a trip to this part of the world simply has to include a round on this superb track.
This is a traditional old links course, with the front nine going out from the west to the east and the back nine doing the opposite. As you might expect from a seaside location, the wind can often dictate the type of shots you need to play. If you’re able to adapt your game to the conditions, the chances are you will have a very successful round.
In 2016, Royal Troon hosted the Open Championship for the ninth time, with the last day featuring an unforgettable battle between Phil Mickelson and the eventual winner Henrik Stenson. Now, with help from Platinum Golf, you and your friends can recreate that iconic tussle with a round on these famous links. Walking in the footsteps of the legends has surely never been more fun.
The West of Scotland is a wonderful location for a golfing trip, with many superb courses, a fabulous coastline and as much or as little nightlife as you and your friends could want.

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,
