SCOTLAND TEES UP LUXURY GOLFING GETAWAYS

Prestwick GC,

The rolling hills of Scotland will forever be known as the birthplace of two things: kilts and golf. While the tartan garb (as charming as it may be) never quite caught on in the rest of the world, golf has turned into an international sports phenomenon after first gaining popularity in the proud Kingdom of Fife during the 15th century.

THE WORLD’S BEST

Today, some six centuries on, golf lovers from all corners of the globe flock to Glasgow, Gleneagles and St. Andrews to tee off on what are widely considered to be the world’s best golf courses. Entire travel packages revolve around these greens, with luxury deals that include a plethora of perks – from coaching sessions with PGA Professionals to distillery tours in search of Scotland’s best whiskeys. Topping it all off is the breathtaking scenery of Scotland’s majestic countryside – sprawling pastel-coloured meadows and meandering rivers of crystal clear waters flowing into the country’s famous age-old lochs. This stunning landscape is home to hundreds of excellent golf courses, each offering its own unique shape and topology, as well as an array of hazards that will keep even the most experience golfers on their toes.

The country’s love of the sport combined with mounting demand from international travelers has even prompted Scotland’s tourism body, VisitScotland, to establish an annual Scottish Golf Tourism Week. The inaugural event is scheduled to kick off at Fairmont St. Andrews in October this year and is aimed to “change the way Scotland’s golf businesses engage with global buyers,” says Malcolm Roughead, chief executive of VisitScotland. “Scotland has always been a land of golfing firsts, from the original rules of the game, the oldest golf courses and the first ever Open Championship.”

A GOLFING HOLIDAY OF YOUR OWN

On the forefront of this accelerating trend is John Scott, a Glasgow-based provider of bespoke golfing holidays and an accredited PGA Professional. “[We] cater to everyone, whether you’re planning your trip with friends, as a couple or in corporate group looking to experience the very best of what the ‘Home of Golf’ has to offer,” explains Scott, a 30-year veteran of the game whose vast experience includes a coaching stint at the Hartl Golf Resort in Germany.

Scott aims to offer a 5-star sports getaway that is truly all-inclusive, from daily transportation and tee-time reservations to luxury accommodation and sumptuous meals at Scotland’s finest restaurants. All of these premium services were carefully crafted to support one primary component: golf. Scott’s main objective, he says, is to sharpen your golfing skills. “We care of the organization, so you can spend time perfecting your game, recharge your batteries and soak up the breathtaking Scottish scenery,” he adds. “We’re committed to arranging the best hotels, pubs and dining experiences and there’s no doubting that we’re ultimately all about the golfing experience.”

Guest will have exclusive access to some of the world’s best championship links courses, including the legendary St. Andrews Old Course, the Royal Troon and Prestwick links. What truly sets the experience apart, however, is that inimitable personal touch from Scott himself, who provides expert pointers to guests looking to improve their swing. “[We will] ensure that your pilgrimage to the golfing homeland will be an unforgettable experience,” assures Scott.

The PGA professional aims to extend this unique opportunity to golfing fans in Asia, where the beloved game is experiencing a shift from being a clichéd extension of the boardroom to becoming a serious passion for the discerning sports enthusiast. To satisfy the demands of this eager market, Scott has partnered with the region’s leading luxury curator Maxuri, to offer an all-inclusive golfing experience that includes championship links, 5-star accommodations, fine dining and distillery tours.
