Golfer and Non-Golfer Ultimate Tour
Golfer and Non-Golfer tour
Scotia Golfing specialise in unique tailor-made Scottish golf tours. We understand that not every member of a group on holiday wants to experience the same daily activities and, remarkably, not everyone who visits Scotland is able to, or wants to golf. Because of this we have put together another package suited to the Golfer and Non-Golfer. If you book this package we will also include reservations at our favourite restaurants. This Scottish tour also gives you the chance to experience a stay in a historic Castle!
Arrive in Scotland and meet your Scotia Golfing representative. They will assist with your hire car collection or help load the chauffeur driven vehicle.
Transfer to Rusacks Hotel, St Andrews. Overlooking the 18th Hole of the Old Course. A fabulous place to start your Scottish golf tour.

The availability is subject to ballot (50% of tee times are allocated this way), 48 hours prior to playing your names will be entered into the ballot and later that day the results will be revealed.
