  1. I have been looking to schedule more golf travel vacations for my dad and I. My first trip was to Scotland. When I first started to plan the trip it was a little overwhelming with options and different providers. Some that could guarantee a tee time at St. Andrews Old Course and some that somewhat guaranteed but you weren't sure. I was fortunate enough to work with a great tour operator, St. Andrews Golf Travel. The two principals, Mark Gentles and Graeme Dawson, were fantastic and provided white glove service and an experience that made you want to go back as often as possible. I realized tha
  2. 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 Turnbe
  3. Growing up I was never one to love traveling especially if it wasn’t with my family. I loved being around and with my family at all times, when someone was missing I felt like they were missing out on fun and I sometimes got FOMO for them. When I went to college I branched out, I was in PGM( professional golf management) at Ohio State and got many awesome opportunities throughout my college life. This experience I was on the fence about because of me not loving to take trips without my family. Most golfers would call me insane for not saying yes instantly but I’m a home body at heart. Th
  4. Anybody got any info to share about Scottish club maker George Nicoll of Fife, Leven, Scotland. I just bought a set of his Monogram series irons. Beauties from the 1930s or 1940s. Very rare. A few putters on Ebay, very very few irons.
  5. I'm a born and bred Canadian in my 40's, who fell back in love with the game after a 2016 trip to Scotland. This second chapter to my golf career continues to pick up speed, and this site looks like a great forum to stay informed of trends, product and opportunities that admittedly I stopped paying attention to a long time ago. The first chapter is a long story, starting at age 5 when my parents took up the game – I started with them, cut down adult clubs and all. I was more interested raking the sand greens at our first 9-hole course than I was trying to get the ball in the air. Names
  6. Which is the best destination for a Golf trip? Scotland or Ireland? You may have read MyGolfSpy's recent blog, where we asked two respective authorities of Scottish and Irish golf to go head to head and describe the perfect golf trip to their homeland... and the then say why their itinerary (over the other) deserved the mantle of the best golf trip ever! The article can be read here For those wanting to cut to the chase, the summary is as follows.... Kieran selected the line up below for the "Best Ever Scottish Trip": 1.Old Course, St. Andrews 2.Kingsbarns 3.New Course
  7. Been following MyGolfSpy for quite some time, but have never introduced myself. I'm a Member at Old Memorial and Cypress Run in Tampa and Rockaway Hunting in New York. Play to a 6+ index (from the wrong side of the ball). Love the game of golf, but really love the camerarderie! Travel extensively inside the US to play golf, but also to other parts of the planet (annually to the UK, and most often, Scotland). Here's to staying healthy and enjoying the game we love (and hate)!!

  10. Shameless plus coming up (apologies in advance!)... ...but I'd thought I'd let you all know that we still have a few St Andrews Old Course packages available for this summer.

  11. You may have read our recent front page article on “How to Organize the Perfect Golf Trip to the UK or Ireland”… If you haven't then you can view it here. Anyway, I'd love to know any additional tips that you might have for organizing golf vacations (either to the US, UK or Internationally), so please post them below. Personally, one of the hardest things that I find when organizing a trip is to get friends (especially guys) to commit to coming, and not having them drop out at the last minute – which can cause a lot of pain. I find that the solution to that is to get the trip

  14. Hi I have just joined and my name is Ian and I am from near St Andrews in Scotland. I am member of Leven Golfing Society which is the 11th oldest golf club in the world, formed in 1820 and celebrating its 200th anniversary in 2020. I retired a couple of years ago and caddy a little during the summer months at Fairmont St Andrews where you will find two fine courses, the Kittocks and the Torrance. I also started a golf tours company offering Scotland Golf Trips, so if anyone needs any information on Golf in Scotland feel free to ask away and I will do my best to help.
