Golf Vacation Travel in Scotland
A grand golf vacation which includes travel in Scotland is a dream for many golf lovers. When you get down to planning such a trip, the logistics can get a bit complicated, but there are some basics that can make it easier.
The first thing to know is that you shouldn't try and see all of the country in one trip, unless its a very long trip. While Scotland may look small on the map, it's roadways are seldom straight lines, especially around the lochs and coastline. Fuel costs are more expensive than in the US, and you don't want to spend most of your vacation in a car anyway. Instead, you should build an itinerary that makes sense and keeps you out of the car. Some of the richer regions for golf are Fife and East Lothian, or you can stay in Ayrshire for a few days to play the Prestwick Golf Club, Royal Troon Golf Club and Turnberry Resort.
