What others say
Comments and info from other golfersI'll never again golf in Scotland any other way than as an independent traveler. The money I saved and the fabulous links golf courses I played are such advantages. I recommend your website to all my golfing friends.

I was very glad to discover your brilliant website. The experience I had on my last 2 trips to Scotland match your descriptions...I am happy to play Crail, Kingsbarns, North Berwick, Gullane and Craigielaw in May this year. Your reviews are very helpful for decisions and planning. Many, many, many thanks for the best website for enthusiastic golfers and Scotland lovers.

My brother and I followed your information and had a fantastic golf vacation in Scotland for half...HALF!!!..of what some friends paid using Perry Golf. And we played some of those hidden gems courses that turned out to be the best golfing of our lives.

I get to play links quite a lot and love your site. Absolutely what golf is about -- play the course as you find it, play the ball as it lies. I had a fantastic trip in Scotland at the end of March which is the shoulder season, worth mentioning even though some of the weather was atrocious! (But as you say, all the more fun for it !) Keep up the good work! Kind regards.

Thanks again for the invaluable service you provide to groups like ours, who prefer to plan their own travel...This will be my 4th trip to Scotland, but not my last.

I had been researching our annual golf tour (8 golfers) when I came upon your excellent resource. It is both charming and informative. It is wonderful to read of the hidden gems. I have based much of my itinerary on your advice...Thank you again for your efforts with Golf Nook Scotland.

Golf Nook Scotland is a website I can rely on for honest information. You have never steered me wrong and I have made three golfing trips to Scotland in the last five years. This would never have happened without your excellent website. Danke sehr.

I love your description of the 8th hole on the New Course St Andrews, and can still picture those imposing bunkers ready to gobble up any errant shot...Played golf with a local, which really helps. Cheers, keep up the good work.
