So, you are thinking of getting tickets for the Ryder Cup, eh? Not a bad idea, to come and visit the home of golf in the same year as the home of the Ryder Cup hosts the tournament. In fact, it’s an excellent idea, so why not book your Ryder Cup tickets now, if you haven’t already done so? And while you are at it, you might like a few ideas about where to stay while you are here.
If you don’t have an old favourite in the area where you like to stay and play gold, you could check out our suggestions for a few ideas. We have listed some of our favourite golfing hotels as well as some ‘off the beaten track’ ideas too.
Mar Hall is an outstandingly beautiful Scottish Edwardian mansion and golf spa hotel that has some real class. The hotel overlooks the Clyde and the Kilpatrick Hills delivers a most attentive service and offers spa facilities, golfing and romantic getaways.
The Kingsmills Hotel
The Kingsmills Hotel is a luxury 4* spa and resort where you can enjoy a quiet weekend playing a round of golf or watching the Ryder Cup from the comfort of your own room or suite. Join us at the Kingsmills for a toddy. We are only 15 minutes away from the Airport at Inverness.
Links House at Royal Dornoch
Links House at Royal Dornoch is a luxury accommodation with charm, fine dining and a view of the 1st tee at the Royal Dornoch golf club. It is worth spending just a few extra Scottish pounds to experience this place first hand, with the wood panelled library and the Drawing Room filled with antiques and art to ensnare the senses.
Off the Beaten Track
If you fancy a far our experience Turnberry is over on the west coast with their three links courses and high level accommodation, courtesy of Donald Trump. However, if you fancy something completely different we highly recommend Silverdyke Caravan Park, near Anstruther. The brand new family owned and operated park is available for rent and purchase of touring pitches, holiday homes, luxury lodges and caravans. Check them out, or, alternatively, check out the self-catering lodges at Elderburn.
