Golf Breaks in Lothian

Steeped in history and home to sumptuous countryside as well as dramatic coastlines, the Lothian region has everything you could possibly want to find on a golf tour that floats all of your boats. It’s proud to offer a number of exceptional golf courses that all lovers of the game will want to enjoy, and the whole area is known for the warmth of its welcome.

East Lothian is known as Scotland’s golf coast, and it’s easy to see why. There are so many Championship links courses to be found here, thought to the largest concentration anywhere on the planet, so you’re spoilt for choice when you look for venues to include in your tour. You have so many opportunities to play the courses played by the game’s greatest exponents.

Chief among them surely has to be Muirfield, a regular host of the Open Championship and the place where Phil Mickelson emerged triumphant in 2013. Views of the sea will feature on many holes, but be warned, the winds that come in from the ocean can have a say in how you play each shot. Thinking your way around is a must here.

Wonderful though it undoubtedly is, Muirfield is only a part of what Lothian has to offer. For many who know their golf around here, Archerfield is highly recommended. There are two excellent tracks to choose from, bringing with them a combination of inland holes making their way through a pine forest to seaside holes that represent the epitome of Scottish links golf.

Other options include the likes of Renaissance, a Tom Doak creation that has played host to many important tournaments. Glen Golf Club at North Berwick is a proper test, but one that’s always fair and enjoyable. Gullane has been a golfing haven for more than 350 years, and these days it has three excellent courses to offer the visitor. They say there’s something special in the air at Gullane, and it’s hard not to agree.

There are some wonderful accommodation options to be found in the region, including many that offer blissful, rural solitude. If you prefer somewhere with nightlife and an exciting, vibrant buzz, you’ll be pleased to know the fabulous city of Edinburgh is close by. Imagine being within a short distance of some of the most famous visitor attractions in the world, such as Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, the Camera Obscura and the National Museum of Scotland.

As befits a golf lover’s paradise, the Lothian region has well over 60 superb courses to choose from. Wherever you live in the world, if you’re looking for a tour that takes in all that Scottish golf can offer, this is the destination for you. And the good news is that Platinum Golf can take all the stress out of the organising by doing it all for you.

Platinum Golf Scotland Testimonials

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.

Michel & Marc

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. 

Russell & Kelly

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.

Michele & Johannes

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.

Bill, Kevin & Glynnis

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,
