Where are you planning on staying
during your next golf trip to Scotland?
You absolutely must consider
these two fantastic golf resorts:
Trump Turnberry Hotel & Golf Resort
Picture yourself driving on the
left side of the road admiring the beautiful country side in the Lowlands of
Scotland. Suddenly, as you veer over a ridge you see the Ailsa Craig (a small
island) nestled in the middle of a vast stretch of water with a white light
house keeping its watchful eye from the coast. To your right, the magnificent
red roofed Trump Turnberry Hotel sits perched atop a hill overlooking the famed Ailsa
golf course. Trump Turnberry has created the perfect 5 Star accommodation with
traditional Scottish hospitality and the best contemporary amenities. There are
very few golf courses in the world where you get that “special feeling” on the
first tee, a sensation that lasts the whole round. By the end you don’t care
what score was shot because the experience is all that matters. That’s the
memory created on the Ailsa Course at Trump Turnberry and it’s something you won’t
forget. It’s the little things that make this golf course magical: Walking past
the light house at the turn, seeing the weather constantly change throughout
your round, using an old WWII monument as a target line on the 9th
and admiring the plaque on the 18th fairway that commemorates Tom
Watson’s phenomenal 7 iron shot that won him the Open Championship in 1977.
After your round, celebrate at the hotel with a delicious meal prepared by
world class chefs and a “wee dram” of the country’s finest single malt whisky.
Take the time to enjoy a nightcap while admiring the sun set over the Firth of
Clyde and you’ll come to realize that Trump Turnberry wasn’t built, it was found.

With its perfectly kept lawns and
beautiful gardens, the Gleneagles Hotel is one of the most prestigious golf
resorts in the world. If it sounds familiar to you it’s because the resort is
hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup and housed the World leaders during the 2005 G8 Summit.
One of the aspects that make Gleneagles so unique is the wide range of
activities available at the resort. Go horseback riding or off-road 4X4 driving
through the Scottish countryside, take a shooting/fishing/falconry/gundog
lesson, or simply make use of the many swimming pools and tennis courts on
property. Visitors can test their game as well as their wits on three
spectacular championship golf courses. The Kings is a brilliantly designed
parkland course with drivable par 4’s and numerous “birthday cake” style
greens. With its natural parkland beauty, the Queens course challenges you to
think on your feet and keep it in the fairway. The PGA Centenary Course was
a true test for both the European and American teams. After your round,
there’s a fine collection of award winning restaurants to choose from at the
resort where you can enjoy a meal and talk about the day’s events. You won’t
find a more magnificent golf resort anywhere in the world. Gleneagles is quite
simply the personification of class.
