The momentous 150th Open Championship tees off on July 7th 2022, at St Andrews Old Course, showcasing Scotland as the original home of golf to a global audience. With 600 years of Scottish golfing history, seek out something extra special and escape the crowds at the best under-the-radar courses with the power to rejuvenate, thrill and pamper the golfing soul. From epicurean escapes and adrenaline adventures, to whisky heritage and island retreats, there is something for every type of golfer.

With proximity to two sublime links courses, Royal Dornoch and Brora Golf Club, country house hotel, Glenmorangie House offers a unique whisky heritage and dinner party style of dining. The Machrie on the Isle of Islay is home to an award-winning links 18-hole golf course, once the longest in Britain. The dramatic coastal setting makes it the perfect island ‘away-from-it-all’ retreat, complete with a soothing spa. Greywalls is the grand dame of fine dining with its revered Chez Roux restaurant; ten Championship Courses within a five-mile radius, including high calibre  links course Muirfield, put this ornate East Lothian hotel at the nexus of golf. Nestled in the beautiful Scottish Borders, The Schloss Roxburghe hosts a full range of adrenaline activities – think excellent fishing, archery, tomahawk throwing and clay pigeon shooting – alongside its championship golf course. Sam Torrance declared the 14th Tee ‘my favourite in Scotland’.
