Golf Vacations in Scotland

Golf course in Scotland:
Golf course in Scotland
The oldest written records of a golf game appear in the archives of the Edinburgh Burgess Golfing Society, which is today known as The Royal Burgess Golfing Society. They record the playing of a game at Bruntsfield Links in Edinburgh, Scotland. Golf is also mentioned in two 15th century Scottish laws, and the oldest playing golf course in the world is The Musselburgh Old Links Golf Course (also in Edinburgh), which has been in use since at least 1672, if not earlier (some people believe that Mary, Queen of Scots played there in 1567). As a result of this venerable history, golf is considered a Scottish invention, and the country is in fact sometimes referred to as "The Home of Golf".

As you might expect given its history and long association with the game, Scotland remains a popular destination for golf vacations. There are many excellent golf resorts in the country, and approximately 550 golf courses.
