Golf Breaks in Tayside

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.

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,
