Golf in Scotland

A trip to Scotland would not be complete without the opportunity to sink a putt in the original ‘home of golf’ and with over 500 courses from links to parkland, there is always time for a few holes.

For the seasoned golfer and with advance planning, it may be possible to play some of Scotland’s famous championship fairways. Prestigious courses in and around Troon, Prestwick, Turnberry and Loch Lomond are closest to Glasgow while, Gleneagles, Muirfield, St Andrews and Carnoustie, are all within an accessible drive time.

Many less well known courses are equally stimulating and a perfect way to enjoy the scenery and fresh air. Just 15 minutes from Greenock Ocean Terminal, Gleddoch House Hotel and Golf Club offers a resort experience with impressive views over the estuary of the River Clyde.

In addition to championship and resort courses, there are over 60 fantastic courses in and around Glasgow, with something for every level of ability.


In less than 90 minutes’ drive from Greenock Ocean Terminal, you can savour the delights of championship fairways at Scotland’s famous Turnberry Resort in South Ayrshire. Offering world class golf on the Ailsa, Kintyre and Arran courses, combined with exceptional teaching facilities in the Colin Montgomerie Links Golf Academy, you can maximise your time on the course whilst enjoying some of Scotland’s beautiful coastal scenery.


Breathtaking coastal views of the Isle of Arran, known as Scotland in miniature, Ailsa Craig and the Irish Sea.
