This morning take a 2.5 hour drive further north into the Highalnds to play at Nairn. This beauty of a links held the 2021 British Amateur Championship, when the winds up it certainly isn’t for the faint hearted! It may be overshadowed by its famous highland neighbours topping the charts in the golf magazine top100 lists but Nairn really is a top class venue worth visiting on its own. After golf head into Inverness to your hotel, Ness Walk. This converted, grade B listed building has been unified with modern design, somehow providing an oasis of seclusion in the heart of the vibrant city of Inverness. Dinner at the hotel restaurant “Torish”, a fine Scottish dining experience. Inverness city centre is easily accessible by foot or taxi should you wish to extend the evening.
This is just an example itinerary; we do not sell “off the shelf” packages. All of the golf trips we plan for our customers are bespoke, and so are the prices. Price depends on the dates you travel, party size, hotel rooms, transport choices, itinerary complexity and so on.
It’s no secret that booking through a tour operator like ourselves is more expensive than booking the golf trip by yourself . We’ve added links to all hotels and golf courses in the “at a glance” section if this is what you’re looking to do.
If however you’d rather leave the admin of 20 or 30 separate bookings to the experts and receive round the clock support and advice from a passionate, local golfer, then look no further. We’re confident in the level of service we provide to every customer and are proud to offer fair prices when compared to our competitors.
