From St. Andrews to Prestwick, Gullane and, naturally, the exceptional 18-hole course here in Pitlochry, you rarely have to go far in Scotland without discovering some of the finest golf courses in the world.
So it’s no wonder then that, over the years, the country has produced more than its fair share of the sport’s biggest heroes.
Whether it’s Tom Morris and James Braid who dominated the sport in the late 1800s and early 1900s or more recent names like Colin Montgomerie, Sandy Lyle and Richie Ramsay, many of golf’s all-time greats got their start teeing off on Scotland’s countless beautifully-maintained courses.
This summer, however, it’s your turn, as golfers of all handicaps are invited to take part in one of the country’s top amateur golf competitions right here in the heart of Highland Perthshire.
Set to take place this July and August, the 2018 Highland Open welcomes men and women from across the country for two weeks of great golf, great times, and of course, great company, all whilst surrounded by truly awe-inspiring scenery.
As if that wasn’t enough to have you eagerly packing your favourite set of clubs, here at the award-winning Dunalastair Hotel suites, we’re offering the one thing guaranteed to ensure you enjoy the kind of luxury usually reserved for the PGA pros:
Five-star accommodation at our boutique hotel in Pitlochry.
Still making plans for your golfing holiday in Scotland this summer? Here’s what you can expect when you join us for the 2018 Highland Open.
An Incredible Experience On and Off the Course
Teeing off with the ladies competition on July 15th and culminating two-weeks later with a second week-long gentlemen’s event, the Highland Open is one of Scotland’s most historic competitions.
Though the 18 hole, par 69 course has changed much in the past century, it has welcomed countless amateurs and professionals alike since it first opened in 1908 and continues to serve as a true highlight of any golfing break in the highlands.
It’s here, on the magnificent fairways surrounded at all sides by dramatic views of highland mountains and lavish, breathtaking forests that players of all abilities descend from across the country to play with – and against – one another for a series of prestigious prizes.
After a day of exhilarating competition, you’ll have the opportunity to get to know your new friends even better, joining them in the club house for several evenings of music, merriment and more.
