Very good

One of the few Alister Mackenzie designed courses in Scotland, Duff House is right in the heart of Speyside which means it's surrounded by lots of Whisky distilleries. The course itself is very much parkland and relatively open off the tee. It's well worth the stop if driving between Aberdeen & Inverness.

Very good

The Old Course is the better of the two 18. Playing hard and fast, this isn't a course you can overpower as strategy from the tee is important. Then you have the low flying fighter jets that shuttle constantly from the neighbouring RAF Airbase which makes a visit and round here unlike any other.

Fabulous

The first Open Championship venue I visited, a round on the Ailsa Course with my father and brother was the perfect 21st birthday present. The amenities are exceptional with great driving range and short game. The course routing makes for some challenging and fun shots which of course leads you to the foot of the iconic lighthouse. The gentle climb back up the hill during the back 9 ensures finishing out on the 18th green in the shadows of the famous hotel. I can't wait to return.

Fabulous

If it's modest authentic Scottish links golf you're after look no further than Fraserburgh. The course routing over dunes requires all the great links style shots. The par 3s, including Braid's elbow are some of the best collective in Scotland. Pound for pound the best value round in Scotland and one of my favourites.

Fabulous

Just finished playing O.T.C.C in warm January sunshine. A visually stunning course, tight fairways often with out of bounds on either or both sides of the fairway and genuinely some of the quickest greens I've ever putted on. If you're lucky enough to know a member its a must play in Orlando!
