Special Offers at Scotland’s Most Famous Links Golf Courses

Great offer for members of golf clubs across Scotland - Members of SGU affiliated golf clubs can take advantage of exclusive preferential green fees this winter at three of Scotland’s most famous Open Championship venues with proceeds from sales being invested in junior golf.

Muirfield, Prestwick and Royal Troon have all generously donated tee-times to the Scottish Golf Union between November and the end of March, with a four-ball on each course costing just £280, representing great savings against the standard green fee rates. The Troon Portland course is also available, at £140 per four-ball.

These special offers are only available to existing members of SGU affiliated clubs, adding great value to your club membership. To book, call the SGU on 01334 466477 or e-mail

Tee-Time Availability (all between 2 November 2009 and 30 March 2010) you can of course then book your accommodation online.

Muirfield has hosted the Open Championship on no fewer than 15 occasions, the last of which was back in 2002 when South African Ernie Els lifted the Claret Jug. Royal Troon recently staged the Allied Surveyors Scottish Amateur Championship won by North East youngster David Law, whilst legends of the game Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson have both reigned supreme on the stunning Ayrshire links at the Open Championship.

Prestwick of course lays claim to the birthplace of the Open Championship, having staged the first ever event back in 1860, with the great Harry Vardon winning three times between 1898 and 1914. A visit to the Prestwick clubhouse is must during your day, featuring a glittering collection of memorabilia from the various championships it hosted during the club’s rich history.
