Golf Ireland & Scotland

A links golf course sometimes referred to as seaside links are the oldest style of golf course, first developed in Scotland. The word comes from the Scots language and refers to an area of coastal sand dunes. Links are located in coastal areas, on sandy soil, often amid dunes, with few water hazards and trees.  The challenges of links golf fall into two categories. First, the nature of the courses themselves, which tend to be characterized by thick rough, uneven fairways, and small deep bunkers. Second, due to their coastal location, many links courses are frequently windy. This affects the style of play required.  Golf experts have played the courses and tailored itineraries to suit the average and expert golfer alike. With the vast number of Golf Courses in Ireland and Scotland, choosing can be difficult. You’ll enjoy looking over TravelKatz’ favorites.  Let us help you decide where to begin.

TravelKatz® Vacation Testimonials

I accompanied a group of 12 to Alaska this past summer.  We flew into Seattle, saw some of the sights, and then flew to Juneau to start our Adventure Cruise.  What a wonderful Adventure. We saw glaciers, hump-back whales and other fascinating things...we would do this again. Thank you for such a great time!

Sandy H, St Petersburg, FL

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful job you did organizing our trip. It absolutely was the best vacation I have ever had. This was my first time over seas and what a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I am going through “James” withdraw today. He was an amazing tour guide and fit in so well with our group. I will definitely recommend you if I know of anyone thinking of going over to Ireland. Your country is so beautiful and everyone is so friendly. I can’t thank you enough for everything.

Jack & JoAnn Douglass, Miami, FL

I appreciated all the information that was given before I left on the trip. Our Guide, Jerry filled in all the other interesting information on what to expect. I felt safe, well feed and learned so much from a trip 45 mins from USA…I want people to see the beauty of the country, the people and their wonderful culture. I so loved the music. I am playing the CD’s often that I bought from the musicians. A trip I would like to do again. Thank you.
