When the team at MyGolfSpy asked us for our picks for the Top 10 Courses in Scotland, it was not an easy task. You are genuinely spoilt for choice with world class golf throughout the country. But we knuckled down and came up with the following 10... when taking into consideration design, surroundings, ambiance and history. 1. The Old Course at St. Andrews 2. Championship Course at Royal Dornoch 3. Championship Course at Carnoustie 4. West Links at North Berwick 5. Championship Course at Machrihanish 6. Old Course at Prestwick 7. Kingsbarns Golf Links 8. Ailsa Course at Turnberry 9. Castle Stuart 10. Muirfield The full "Top 10 Scottish Golf Courses You MUST Play!" article can be seen here. Do you agree with our picks? Or which ones would you put in your top 10? And let us know if you have been lucky enough to play any of these courses! It's worth reading the article as some great comments and suggestions have also been posted by the MyGolfSpy community. Thanks, Guy
I put together a 24 man Buddy Trip each June. Each foursome stays in a 4 Bedroom house with a pool and we play 4 rounds of Stableford Points to crown a Champion. The other two rounds are set up as two man & four man Scrambles. We play two courses (only a mile apart) in Kissimmee and stay in houses next to one of the courses. The cost is $250/person for housing and golf for four days. Below are the course ratings for my home club, Pebble Creek and the two clubs we will be playing over four days next week.......Of the 24 Players, half play from the Senior Tees (Silver/Gold). The other half plays from the White Tees. From my perspective, Remington is longer and a bit harder and Kissimmee Bay is shorter and easier. We play Remington three days(3 rounds + scramble) and Kissimmee Bay one day(1 round + scramble). The way I see it, the differences are about equal. Some of the guys are complaining that the Slope difference at Pebble(122 - 111 = 11) between the whites & Seniors should be adjusted for the other two courses. I am not sure how to adjust Stableford Points Quotas to be equal. anybody got any suggestions?
