Turnberry Ailsa Course, Scotland

A fantastic couple of days at Turnberry for our 8 New York golfers, The Bamundo Party, who golfed the Ailsa Championship and up the road at Royal Troon Golf Course.

The sun shone and the legendary Open venue of the Ailsa Championship course played and looked absolutely beautiful. This is truly one of Scotland's greatest links golf courses and should not be left off any visiting golf party's itinerary.

The recent sale of the Turnberry Resort to the American Donald Trump will see some alterations to the actual hotel rather than any major changes to the golf course and I am sure the R&A will be heavily involved if any are planned.

Coffey Party Golf Tour.

It was good to meet up again with Mr. Coffey and his wife who had traveled over from Boston, USA, last year to golf in Scotland with the assistance of Caddie Golf Tours. They returned last month with two other couples who would be experiencing Scotland for the first time.

The two new golfers to Scotland were treated to some excellent golf on this trip that Mr. Coffey set up with John Boyne from Caddie Golf Tours:

The Art of Golf.

I received an invitation in the post this morning to a private viewing of Scotland's national sport "The Art of Golf".

The exhibition is being held at the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh on the 10th July which coincides with the first days golf at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club of the Scottish Open.

I think we will make the wee trip to Edinburgh an overnight stay and include some good food, a glass of wine or two and some art. Excellent.

Scotland Golf Tours May 2014

I did not realize that it has been a full month since I last posted a Blog on our site, goodness the month of May flew by quickly, with 6 Scotland and St. Andrews golf tours taking place and spilling over into the beginning of June.

There have been numerous posts and photographs placed on our G+ page and I shall look to compile a summary of a busy May to place here on Blogger now that I have returned to Caddie Golf Tours office for a couple of days.
