Most people tend to think of a golfing odyssey in Scotland in terms of ancient, historic courses that have hosted the game for hundreds of years, but it’s important to remember there are some incredible modern courses to be savoured here as well. Renaissance, close to both Muirfield and North Berwick on Scotland’s east coast, is rightly regarded as a contemporary masterpiece, having opened in 2008 to a great deal of fanfare.
Designed by renowned American architect Tom Doak, it has since hosted a number of important tournaments. More importantly, of course, is the fact that it’s open to visitors from around the world, and the team at Platinum Golf can help you find the tee times that perfectly fit in with your next trip to Scotland. There are so many things to love about Renaissance, including the undulating fairways, the relatively fair sprinkling of bunkers around the course and the sea views from various parts of the course.
If you’re looking for a stand-out hole there are perhaps too many to mention, but one of the most impressive is the par-3 9th, where opening shots invariably play into the wind. The view from the tee itself seems to imply that the green goes on forever. Beware the old wall running down the right and the rough to the left and anywhere short of the green.
This area of Scotland is perfect for visiting golfers who want a tour that takes in the perfect mixture of old and new courses. There are some wonderful venues just a short journey from Renaissance, and the historic city of Edinburgh, one of the world’s greatest destinations, is less than an hour away by car. And if you want some help arranging sightseeing trips while you’re here, our experienced and knowledgeable specialists can see to that as well. Just call 01382 477552 to find out more.
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,
