If you like your golf to be played on a dramatic landscape accompanied by incredible views, the Highlands is surely the place for you. From that first moment when you play your opening tee shot right through to your final putt on the 18th green, the natural beauty of this region will captivate you. There’s a diverse selection of courses to enjoy here, but each and every one of them offers full-on, jaw-dropping splendour.
Perhaps the most difficult aspect of organising a golf tour of the Highlands is knowing which courses to play. Needless to say, this will also inevitably lead to you having to omit some incredible venues as well. Perhaps the most impressive course to be found here is Royal Dornoch, a place that has views to impress even the most hard-hearted of individuals. It features regularly in lists of the world’s top courses, and it’s so easy to see why.
Only an hour to the south you’ll find another favourite, Castle Stuart. Conveniently located close to Inverness, it’s hosted several Scottish Opens in the past and has become a firm favourite with visiting golfers from around the world. The spectacular setting and the views across the Moray Firth are enough to make it a must-visit. Just up the road there’s also Nairn, where the sea comes into play on a number of holes and where you have to respect the wind from start to finish.
As well as the dramatic golfing highlights, you’ll find plenty of other reasons to love the Highlands. Must-see locations include Loch Ness and the fabulous Urquhart Castle, the Cairngorms National Park, the historic Battlefield at Culloden and the dramatic Inverness Castle. History and heritage, not to mention stunning landscapes, are all around you in this area.
Just as diverse as the landscape is the selection of accommodation options that you have here. Whether you’re looking for the most elegant hotels or the cosiest B&Bs, you can choose from a very good selection. There are places with dramatic sea views, town centre convenience and several tranquil rural hideaways, so the Highlands really does offer something to suit all tastes.
Organising a golf tour can be something of a shot in the dark, especially if you don’t know the area. It makes sense, therefore, to engage the services of people who have first-hand experience of the courses, the tourist attractions, the accommodation options and the eateries to make your next trip one that will stay in the memory banks for a lifetimes. The team at Platinum Golf know all there is to know about the Highlands, and we can take care of everything on your behalf.
All that’s left for you to do is sit back and look forward to that first exquisite moment when you tee the ball up on the opening hole, eager to experience everything that golf in the Highlands can throw your way. Just call 01382 477552 to find out more. We look forward to hearing from you.Enquire Today
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.
