Scotland Links Golf - West Coast

We have been updating our 2015 golf packages over the last month and a selection of classic Scotland links golf offers are now on our web site at caddiegolftours
The Gailes Golf Experience includes three rounds of classic links golf, one each at Glasgow Gailes Golf Course, Western Gailes Golf Course and Dundonald Links that will surely satisfy the most enthusiastic of golfers.  

Glasgow Gailes was established in 1892, re-designed by legendary Willie Park Jr of Musselburgh in 1912, and is a wonderful traditional links. It is held in such high regard that the R&A have selected it as the sole Final Open Qualifying course in Scotland for 4 years, 2014 - 2017.  Western Gailes, circa 1897, is a Scottish links golf course that should be on every golfer's must play list. It has been host for Final Qualifying when the Open Championship was played at Royal Troon and Turnberry and has hosted the Curtis Cup and 8 Scottish Amateur Championships.

St Andrews Golf Club 2015

This last week I was delighted to receive, through the post, confirmation from the St Andrews Golf Club of my Membership for this year and the competition Fixture List for the 2015 golf season.

With the 'interruption' of the 2015 Open Championship at St Andrews in July, the Old Course is closed for 4 weeks, and the New, Jubilee and Eden courses are also affected with the assembly of the infrastructure for the great event, but all the St Andrew golf clubs do find a way to massage the golf calendar to include our local competitions.

I did manage to get down to, and retain, an 8 handicap in 2014 so this year my challenge is to enter the 1st tier at the St Andrews Golf Club and for that I require a 7 handicap or less. I am going to need some seriously good and productive practice...Fore!

A trip across to St Andrews and our first Old Course tee time of the New Year at 10:20am. Thankfully we have decent weather with a 18 - 20 mph wind from west.
