Scotland’s Golf Coast is a truly authentic golfing experience and a celebration of the history of the game. The area not only features the oldest course in the world at Musselburgh Links; but was also the location of the first Ryder Cup played in Scotland in 1973, at Muirfield: a course that inspired Jack Nicklaus to construct Muirfield Village in Ohio.

Scotland’s Golf Coast also has a diverse offering of accommodation to offer golfers and their families, providing the perfect opportunity to rest, relax and unwind before enjoying another round of golf. It is a dream for visiting golfers, with all accommodation providing easy access to golf courses. Golfers will be spoiled for choice with 5-star luxury hotels, family-run bed and breakfasts, self-catering apartments or even centuries-old stately homes all on offer. No matter where you choose to stay and what activities you choose to do, you are always guaranteed a very warm welcome and an authentic experience on Scotland’s Golf Coast.
