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

Cannot think of an aspect of our trip that could have been better. The itinerary you created was first rate, and your execution through Alan and James, was flawless. Yours and Stuart’s attention to detail than follow through, were indeed worthy of your “platinum” name. Truly a trip of a lifetime. I would serve as a reference anytime. Thank you so much again.

Best, John. J

I echo everything John said. It was a tremendous, unforgettable trip. Everything was top-notch — accommodations, food, weather, caddies, and all the beautiful courses. I miss my Scottish breakfast! A special tip of my new Scottish tweed hat to all our drivers, especially Alan. He took really good care of us, showed us some interesting local things “off itinerary” and was just a joy to travel with.

Thanks again for all work you did getting me a buggy at each course. It made it all possible for me.

Dear Lynda, Sending a short note of thanks for all of the support organizing the trip last week. I can say with confidence this was the best golf trip I’ve ever taken! The itinerary, schedule, accommodations, restaurants and on and on were all great. Special thanks to both you and Stuart for helping to make my 50 year celebration a memorable one. I hope to be able to book another trip again in the future.
All the best,

Brian D

Dear Stuart and Lynda,

I wanted to thank you for a fabulous trip to Scotland last week. You put together the perfect golf and stay package and everything went flawlessly (including really nice weather). We also enjoyed having James as our driver. He was the best! Erick, Jim, Brian and I all had a great time.

This was the definition of a “bucket list” trip and the experience did not disappoint. The only downside is, after nearly a year of anticipation, it is hard to believe the trip is already over and we are back home.

Thank you again. I would definitely love to use you again for future travel and will be very comfortable recommending you to friends and family.

Thanks Linda,
Great to meet you both as well.
It was a great time
We will be in touch for sure.


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!


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.
