Activities in the UK and Europe
Throughout the UK and Ireland, golf is an extremely important feature of our sporting life and you will find courses on the outskirts of nearly every Scottish town. Most courses are very easy to gain access to and there are numerous public courses for all to play on. Indeed unlike in the US, we have very few private or private members clubs. Whatever your skill level we can recommend some wonderful golf courses for you to experience.
In Scotland, the links courses (built on sand) are the great attraction and bring in hordes of golfers from around the world. These include St Andrews, Carnoustie, Turnberry, Cruden Bay, Royal Aberdeen, Troon, Muirfield and Royal Dornoch to name but a few. Inland courses like Rosemount and Ladybank are also very popular and there are literally hundreds of local courses to choose from. Golf is a very much a social sport but can take up most of the day, so for non golfing spouses or other family members, LTR will arrange an assortment of other activities and sightseeing to keep everyone occupied.
Whether you are playing on the great courses of southern England or Ireland, or the more windswept highland courses, the golf clubs will welcome you onto their famous courses both to play and more often than not, to lunch afterwards in the club house. LTR has built up an extensive knowledge of these golf courses and we have a golf tour director who can arrange your schedule, book tee times and lay on transportation.
Accommodation will be arranged along the way and additional services provide as required, like spa treatments and dinner reservations. Caddies are arranged on request and equipment can be hired. LTR takes on all the organization and leaves our guests to enjoy the actual golf vacation.
Many of our guests have low handicaps but as A.A. Milne said “Golf is so popular simply because it is the best game in the world at which to be bad.”
