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.
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.
