Top Parkland Golf Courses in Scotland

The regions of Scotland have through the centuries maintained their differences, the Highlanders, largely Gaelic speaking were mobile cattle farmers, while the Lowlanders, English speaking, were firmly planted arable farmers. The Lowlands is the most densely populated region, an area of impressive castles, palaces, medieval burghs and by the two impressive cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. The Highlands are characterised by the mountainous scenery, beautiful coastlines and a myriad of interesting islands.

You'll get access to two golf courses with a total of 27 holes that stretch across 365 acres of property.
The Old Course at Edzell is set in 120 acres of ideal terrain. In 2001, an additional nine holes were laid out and the new course is called the West Water. Edzell is an inland course of real beauty and one of the best holes is 'Majuba', a short par three which needs a well played short iron to reach the green, which has a deceptive slope. It's three-putt territory above the hole. There's a flavour of Gleneagles, but the fairways are more tree-lined and there are a few blind shots. For valu...
The Queen's course, like the King's designed by James Braid, opened in 1917. It passes through high ridges on the north and west sides of the estate with ditches as water hazards and measures less than 6,000 yards, par 68, from the medal tees. But it remains an enjoyable challenge in a beautiful setting where deer appear from the woods and the holes dart between moorland and woodland to greens set in pretty glades. The first nine of 3,192 yards into the prevailing South Westerly breeze can ...
The PGA Centenary Course is a modern classic, combining the best of both the Queen's and King's, created in 1993 by Jack Nicklaus, with five different tees at each hole, the championship markers spanning the 7,088 yards that will be used for the 2014 Ryder Cup. American-style, formerly known as the Monarch's, with some long walks between greens and tees, it's a big stadium course, the longest inland course in Scotland with huge undulating greens, bold bunkering and several risk and reward hol...
Duff House was planned by James Braid in 1910 before Alister Mackenzie redesigned it in 1923. It is a flat, beautifully manicured parkland course with little rough and big two-tiered greens. The emphasis is placed on natural beauty rather than artificial features. There are no steep hills on the undulating fairways and few blind approach shots. There is always an alternative route for those not wishing to take risks over long carries. Two feature holes are the seventh, a 460-yard par four al...
Crail's Balcomie Links is set along the Fife coastline and several holes run alongside the sea and and rocky outcrops of the Firth foreshore which come into play at the second, fourth and fifth - ominously called Hell's Hole - where you must make up your mind whether to carry the beach or take the long way round. The 13th and 14th are superb and the last few holes are a test. No wonder Old Tom Morris. who designed it, described it as his favourite course. A second course, Craighead, has panor...
This 18-hole course is one of the very best parkland golf courses in Dumfries & Galloway. There is a welcoming and friendly atmosphere here, and a round on the course will be challenging as well as relaxing. There are no members and no competitions - just an excellent golf course to enjoy.
Opened by the club's attached touring professional Lee Westwood in May 2011, the championship Lee Westwood Colt course at Close House is a typical, thoughtfully-designed English parkland lay-out offering a rich variety of outstanding holes through the estate of an 18th century mansion, now a splendid hotel. Individual features of the area, including a forest, Roman fort and an historic wall, have been skilfully incorporated with panoramic views over the Tyne Valley, yet just ten miles from Ne...
