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, 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.

No matter where you choose to stay you are guaranteed a very warm welcome and an authentic experience.
