|Where to Play - Where to Stay - What to Do
Would you like to golf in Scotland and make your own decisions
on where to stay and what courses to play.
Does it appeal to you to travel independently
if you could be sure how to go about it?
Do you want to feel the freedom of being
on your own to play and stay where you wish,
yet feel secure and comfortable? Or maybe
you're traveling with someone who doesn't
golf but who appreciates the local scenes,
the history, the people, the culture? If
you answered "yes" to any of the
above, we believe you will enjoy and benefit
from Golf Nook Scotland.
You can create your own do-it-yourself golf
vacation in Scotland, home of golf.
Major advantages of independent golf travel
1. You save lots of money because your only
costs are those you, yourself, spend for
setting up your trip.
2. You design your own itinerary and play all
the great courses PLUS the hidden Scottish
golf treasures the locals cherish,
pros venerate, and commercial golf
3. You go at your own pace, not tied
Richard, a mid-handicapper, loves the game
of golf. Mary-Alice, not a golfer, loves
the land, the castles, the people, the things
to see and do in Scotland. Both of us love
the lore and aesthetics of the great courses
-- their history and tradition, the great
players, the skill involved, the game itself
with all its frustrations and rewards. We
admire those respectfully silent at golf
tournaments while someone else yells "GET
IN THE HOLE". We appreciate the golfers
who replace their divots, repair their own
ball marks and look for others to repair.
We're grateful for the one in the foursome
who suggests letting the group behind play

Independent golfing travel saves you lots
|Scottish links golf courses grow out of the
land. To appreciate and fully enjoy them,
it helps to know something of the history
and the culture out of which they were born.
The little things are what define a place--the
small details that most golfing travelers
in Scotland (especially those in golf
groups) never have the time or opportunity
to enjoy. But you will, because as an independent golfing traveler
your goal is not to play and bolt (or
we say hit and run?) these great Scottish
links courses, but to experience the
and unexpected delights of Scotland.
