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.

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!
