Work and Play the Scottish Way - Golf Edventure  (9 Days)

There’s no room for dispute—Scotland is the golfer’s mecca. Touted as the birthplace of modern golf, the country is home to some of the finest (and oldest) traditional links courses in the world. From famed St Andrews to historic Turnberry on Scotland's west coast, you’ll experience a style of play unlike anything in North America, as well as legendary landscapes that challenge even the most thoughtful golfer. More interested in exploring than golfing? No problem! Alternate sightseeing activities will offer non-golfers a Scottish Edventure of their very own. Kilts are optional.

Edventure Highlights:

~ Take an overnight flight by internationally-recognized airline, transfer to your hotel, and meet your fellow travelers at an included Welcome Dinner


~ Take a guided motorcoach tour of Scotland's "second city" of Glasgow, including a drive past the Burrell Collection Museum, its historical university, George Square, the River Clyde, and the city’s medieval cathedral


~ Golf Royal Troon, an eight-time host to the Open Championship, and seventh-ranked course in Scotland, boasting the Postage Stamp, the Open’s shortest and arguably most difficult hole

~ Non-golfers will visit Stirling, a town steeped in the history of the Wars of Scottish Independence and its castle, then travel into the valley where "Braveheart" William Wallace beat back the British at the Battle of Stirling Bridge, and to Antonine Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage site built in 142 AD
 


As you play of Turnberry, you can still see the remnants of runways built by the British government built an airbase on the grounds during World Wars I and II, and take in the scenery of this four-time host to the Open Championship, known for its trademark 9th hole overlooking the ruins of a 13th-century castle 


~ Non-golfers pass along the banks of Loch Lomond and stop in Glencoe, site of the notorious 1692 MacDonald clan massacre


~. Travel along the Firth of Forth to North Berwick, site of the 2010 British Amateur Championship, that boasts a traditional seaside links layout, as well as one of the oldest and most fun courses in the world


~ Correctional/Law Enforcement Officers will tour HMP Edinburgh 


~ Make your pilgrimage to St Andrews, the birthplace of golf, and upon arriving, you’ll set out on a tour of the surrounding town, paying visits to the local university, cathedral and castle


~ Receive a two-day unlimited pass, allowing you to play any of the seven courses at St Andrews as much as you’d like (excluding the coveted Old Course), including the Castle Course, which clings to cliffs just outside town, or the David Kidd-designed course, which is the newest addition to St Andrews and has already earned numerous accolades, including a Golf World “Top 100 Course”, or play the more than 100-year-old New Course, which runs adjacent to the Old Course


Get acquainted with Scottish history and heritage from a local’s perspective on a guided tour of Edinburgh, including stops at the elegant Georgian New Town and the Royal Mile, two UNESCO World Heritage sites,  the King George statue, Bute House and Sir Walter Scott monument , and the iconic Edinburgh Castle and the famed Stone of Scone


~ Take an optional tour of Abbotsford House, the 19th-century estate of Sir Walter Scott, designed in the Romantic style to imitate the elaborate baronial estates of British aristocrats, and then visit the ruins of Melrose Abbey, one of the most impressive of the four Borders abbeys ($69 pp)


~  Enjoy a special evening of Scottish tradition as you witness an authentic céilidh, an age-old Scottish celebration, with a savory dinner of local favorites, then an evening featuring folk dancers, bagpipers, fiddlers and the “Ceremony of the Haggis”
