Non-Golfers: Visit Falkland Palace – built as a hunting lodge for the Royal House of Stuart in 1402, this impressive structure, now owned by Queen Elizabeth, is an excellent example of early Renaissance architecture. Frequently used by Mary Queen of Scots, the interior is filled with superb oak carvings including the Royal Chapel and the Royal Chambers.  The Royal Burgh of Falkland, with its cobblestone streets, crooked houses, unusual shops and three charming old pubs, is well worth strolling through.

However the tees are graded at each hole in five stages, including a monstrous 7,081 yards from the back tees to the challenging 6,551 yards from the white markers all the way down to 5,065 from the red. Nicklaus has done an excellent job of mixing the modern with the traditional to create a new Scottish classic.
