Day 1
Arrive Scotland

Spend your first 3 nights in Southwest Scotland and play Prestwick Old Course and Royal Troon Old Course

Day 2
Play Prestwick Old Course
Original British Open Venue
Founded in 1851, a full 27 years before its neighbor, Troon Golf Club, Prestwick is a microcosm of golf’s history, not to be missed by even those with only a passing interest in all that has occurred in the 600 year since golf came to be. The very first Open Championship was held here in 1860, and Prestwick went on to host the event for each of the next 11 years. Best described as a traditional, classic links, the course has secured an ominous reputation for its blind holes, humps, hillocks and greens that may appear to be quirkily contoured. No less a shock to the first time visitor are the steep faced, pot bunkers, some of which are well over 6 feet deep.

Day 3
Play Royal Troon Old Course
British Open Venue
One of the great links courses in Scotland, Royal Troon Old Course is a challenging test of golfing ability. It is a traditional out and back links layout with the opening few holes showing a kinder side of the course’s sometimes merciless character.  These short par-4′s run picturesquely along the shoreline of the Firth of Clyde, offering an opportunity to soak in the scenery — Ailsa Craig to the distant south and to the west, the majestic mountains of the Isle of Arran. Enjoy the views while you may for there is serious work ahead. The Old Course is tough from beginning to end.

Day 4
Travel to the enchanting Highlands for a 3 night stay and play Royal Dornoch and Nairn Championship

Day 5
Play Royal Dornoch Course
The pride and joy of Highland golf is and always has been, Royal Dornoch, where the game has been played since the early 17th century. Ranked among the top dozen courses in the world and one of the best links anywhere, it’s a layout that belongs on every golfers bucket list. Visit during the spring or early summer and Dornoch will be ablaze with brilliant yellow as the abundance of gorse and a predominant hazard here, shows off its one redeeming asset. Don’t be deceived by the good looks, it’s a hazard with a voracious appetite for errant shots and to be avoided at any costs.

Day 6
Play Nairn Championship Course
Nairn is very much a traditional Scottish links with the opening holes stretching out along the shoreline. The course is a fine test of golf for the amateur golfer and professional golfer alike along with beautiful greens and a spectacular backdrop. The club has been the host to the Walker Cup and Curtis Cup.

Day 7
Enjoy your final 3 nights in St. Andrews and play St. Andrews New, Carnoustie,  and St. Andrews Old course on a guaranteed time

Play St. Andrews New Course
Names can be misleading and before condemning The New for any misconception of youth, bear in mind that when it originally opened as St. Andrews’ second course back in 1895, it was indeed new. Add to its pedigree the design, which comes from the true master of links architecture, Old Tom Morris and you know this is not a course to be snubbed. There are many similarities between The Old and The New, including an impressive double green, undulating fairways, an abundance of threateningly deep pot-bunkers, perilous rough of wild grasses, gorse and brush and generously large, rolling greens.

Day 8 
Play Carnoustie Championship Course
British Open Venue
Dating back to 1560, Carnoustie is described as one of the true wonders of the golf world. Frequently used for the British Open, and recent host to the Open in 2007, this 18-hole layout presents one of the greatest challenges for any player at the top of his game.

Day 9
Play  St. Andrews Old Course on a Guaranteed Starting Time
British Open Venue
It was nature that formed St. Andrews over the centuries, and the St. Andrews Old Course has seen little change from its original layout. From as early as 1552, this course has been visited by Royalty, as well as the greatest golfers the world has known. From the 1st hole crossing the bridge over the famous Swilcan Burn, to the 18th with its notorious Valley of Sin, there is no other golf course with the history of the St. Andrews Old Course.
