Highlights of the Summer Golf Trip to Scotland in July 2023:

(Click on the arrows to view photos in the slideshow)
The famous Swilcan Bridge on the Old Course, the Home of Golf, St Andrews.
What makes Dumbarnie Links so rich is its position along a mile and a half golden sandy beach where dolphins and seals are a regular sight just offshore from the course.
Kingsbarns Golf Links is a seaside Scottish links golf course along 1.8 miles of shoreline near St Andrews, and has been rated as one of the best courses in Scotland.
A guided tour of the Kingsbarns Distillery is the perfect intro to Scotch whisky making – with a chance to taste samples of single malts including their award-winning ‘Dream to Dram’.
The R&A World Golf Museum immersive galleries bring the Past, Present and Future of Golf to life with thousands of fascinating objects telling hidden stories of the game and its personalities.
The historic Rusacks Hotel features Highlands-inspired luxurious decor in each room while offering all the modern comforts to a discerning traveler.
Stately and cozy room with Scottish decor at the recently renovated Rusacks Hotel.
The Bridge offers casual yet polished dining experience, with the British and European dishes are all prepared with ‘in-season and local’ ethos in mind.

The Road Hole bar has 266 Scottish whiskies to choose from! 

The Road Hole bar lounge has stunning views across the links, to the West Sands beach. 

The iconic Jigger Inn with the first row view of the Old Course – fondly referred to as ‘the towns best 19th hole’ and much loved by the many celebrities who visit.
The Jigger Inn is home to golfing memorabilia, crackling open-hearth fires, home-cooked food and a superb selection of Scottish beers – this is  Scottish pub hospitality at its very best.
Golfer’s Corner Lounge Bar at the Dunvegan Hotel is a landmark pub – the perfect spot to chill out after golf, have a bite and ‘rehydrate’.
Fisher & Donaldson bakers are famous for their large assortment of delicious and fresh pastries, bread, cakes and hand made chocolate treats.
Fisher & Donaldson, well known and loved brand by the locals and visitors alike, has served for generations. Even their frogs are too sweet to resist!

TESTIMONIALS

Thank you so much for organizing our amazing stay at St Andrews. We could not believe the views, great access, and lovely accommodations. We loved how close we were to The Dunvegan! What an amazing trip and wonderful vacation that we will be talking about for years. At least with our next trip to Scotland we “get it” now. What a great experience we had. Thank you for everything. Much appreciated!

~ Neal and Lindsey Steber, AZ

Kevin and Taba provided our group a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime experience. From the luxury transportation to the golf and hotel arrangements, every last detail was taken care of and well organized. Ours was not an easy trip to organize because we played 15 rounds of golf in 10 days, all around Scotland, but Kevin and Taba made it easy on us. If anyone is considering a golf trip to Ireland or the U.K. we would unequivocally recommend having Kevin and Taba Dale craft the trip for them.

Thank you for helping me put together and go on the golf trip of a lifetime this past August. I still find myself daydreaming about St. Andrews, Castle Stuart, Turnberry, pubs, beautiful countryside, small towns, Dornoch Castle, and many other delightful places. I am hoping to put together an Ireland golf trip sometime in the next 3 years and will be in touch.
