As you will expect from the country that gave golf to the world, there are some fabulous regions to explore when planning a golfing tour to Scotland. One of the most iconic has to be Tayside, an area that covers Dundee, Angus and Perth and Kinross, and a location that’s synonymous with everything that this wonderful game has to offer.
And while some areas of the world can claim to have an excellent golf course to enjoy, Tayside has more than you could ever wish for. Perhaps the jewel in its impressive crown is the fabulous Carnoustie Golf Links, which has played host to many Open Championships and remains one of the most iconic golfing venues in the whole world.
And as if that was wasn’t already wonderful enough, how about including a trip to Gleneagles on your next tour? There are three courses to choose from, including the superb PGA Centenary, where the 2014 Ryder Cup was held. Gleneagles also offers the King’s and Queen’s Courses, both of which are historic, enjoyable and immensely beautiful.
There are several more to choose from, leaving you and your friends spoilt for choice. Monifieth is an 1850s venue, but has a golfing pedigree dating back to the 1630s. It offers 36 holes of traditional links golf, as does Montrose, where the 1562 Course and the Broomfield Links lend themselves perfectly to a full day of sporting excellence.
Tayside deserves to be on any golf trip’s schedule, and there’s yet more about this fabulous region to enjoy. This is a hugely popular destination for tourists from all over the world, thanks to the stunning countryside, the glorious beaches and a great selection of iconic towns and cities that are just waiting to be explored. Wherever you choose to be based, you can be sure of finding plenty to see and do.
Perhaps the most popular base for visitors is in the historic city of Dundee on the banks of the River Tay. Here’s where you’ll find a great many excellent attractions, including the superb V&A Dundee, Discovery Point, HMS Unicorn, the McManus Art Gallery and Museum, the Mills Observatory and the Dundee Science Centre. Make sure you leave enough time for exploring.
Away from Dundee, there are a number of excellent locations in which to be based, both inland among the rural splendour and along the waterfront. Arbroath is a great choice, as is Broughty Ferry, just a short distance from Dundee itself. And of course, you can choose from an eclectic mix of accommodation options, including hotels, B&Bs, country houses, self-catering apartments and, for that extra wow factor, there’s even a few castles that offer the chance to stay in a truly iconic location.

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.
