All of us, as golfers, talk about "the pilgrimage" or "the return to the cradle of the game".


Scotland is a relatively tiny place but it contains around 500 golf courses including 10 of the Top 100 in the world (depending on whose list you refer to). All of us, as golfers, talk about "the pilgrimage" or "the return to the cradle of the game". We start this adventure on the Ayrshire coast where the 2009 Open was over at Turnberry's spectacular Ailsa Course. Among the Opens held here was Nicklaus and Watson's 1977 "Duel in the Sun" - still regarded by many as the greatest "match" ever. Tom almost gave us a repeat performance again in 2009! 1986 saw Greg Norman's first major triumph and I'm sure most of us thought that was to be just the first of many! The Shark was magnificent that week - he shot a 63 on Friday on his way to a five shot victory march.

Then there is the Home of Golf -  St Andrews. You could spend up to six nights at venerable Rusacks Hotel, right beside the Old Course's 18th fairway. Golf at the Old Course and Carnoustie, amongst others, is on the agenda. However, even without playing, this wonderful place provides lots to experience - the ruins of the castle, the university, the golf shops, the museum and St Andrews Beach – not to mention just sitting behind the 1st tee and 18th green watching other pilgrims experience one of life's special moments. Finally, you could head north to the Highlands stopping in Bram Stoker country at Cruden Bay.
