  Trip 3  Edinburgh and the Festival 

We will spend the week in the heart of the magical city of Edinburgh, right in the shadows of the Castle.  We will be there during the International Festival, one of the most exciting cultural events in the world.  Some of the world's finest musicians, actors, authors, comedians, artists and more will be on hand to entertain and enlighten us. 
But that's only the start...check out the courses we have lined up!

Carnoustie Championship Course  "Carnoustie Championship Course reigns supreme as the most challenging and stimulating golf course in the world. A true links course, it is on every golfer’s ‘must play at least once in a lifetime’ list. Carnoustie was host to the 1999 British Open, (when it was 7,361 yards -- the longest Open venue). Just like the pros, you will have to watch out for the rough on the course and the Barry Burn on the 18th."  From Course Master website

St. Andrew's New Course   "It has frequently been said that if the New Course were not situated next to the Old, then its star would have shone with a far greater degree of brilliance.  Located as it is in the shadow of its illustrious neighbour, the New Course can be considered one of St Andrews' best kept secrets.Opened in April 1895, the course was built in response to increasing demand for golf at St Andrews."

Musselburgh Links    We'll begin our week with a very special round of golf.  You'll get to play your first 9 holes of golf in Scotland at the oldest playing golf course in the world with hickory shafted clubs and gutta percha balls!  A guide will accompany our group to point out historic features of the course.  After a light lunch at the turn, you will play the back 9 with your own clubs. Documentary evidence shows that golf was played on Musselburgh Links in 1672 although Mary, Queen of Scots reputedly played here in 1567.  " In 1817 horse racing came to Musselburgh Links. Since then the nine holes of the Musselburgh Old Course have been contained within the racecourse. Over the years the Old Course has been home to many golf clubs, and the Open Championship was played here six times between 1874 and 1889." undiscoverdscotland.com 

The Glen Golf Club, N. Berwick 

"The course snakes round the edge of a breath-taking coastline offering spectacular views of the Firth of Forth and Bass Rock, one of the world's largest bird sanctuaries. Its short 13th hole - a blind postage stamp just a hair's breadth from sand and sea - is widely acknowledged as one of Scotland's finest. Tip: keep left or your ball is fish food." The Evening Press (York),
