Planning

If the Old Course St Andrews is a must play Caddie Golf Tours will concentrate on creating your golf vacation around securing advanced tee times here at St. Andrews. The vast majority of 2020 Old Course advance tee times have now been sold and the local Ballot will be the route to gain access to the course this year, the following link explains the Old Course St Andrews Ballot.

Now is the time to begin planning to secure advanced Old Course tee times for 2020 golf season and we will be accepting enquiries from golfers for next year.

The following information will help with us build your golf trip to Scotland:

  • name of lead golfer
  • proposed number in group  
  • golf club membership and handicap details of players 
  • dates the group are able to golf in Scotland
  • how long is the golf trip to last.

When do you contact Caddie Golf Tours?

Why not now. Please send an email to caddiegolftours@gmail.com

Or if taking advantage of our short stay golf offers please contact us at your convenience.

If it is to be a longer stay involving golf at our championship venues there is an obvious argument to plan in advance and we would suggest that the participants names and potential dates for the golf tour be with Caddie Golf Tours as soon as you can.

How long is the tour to last: 1 or 2 days, a weekend or a week?

A question the golfers must answer...work & family are usually the over-riding factors. From experience we have found a seven day golf tour that includes 5 - 7 rounds of golf is usually plenty for those travelling from afar. We would recommend staying in a maximum of two locations rather than constantly moving, unpacking and packing, stay awhile and enjoy your golf.

Scotland is the golf destination. With international flights into the main hubs at Edinburgh and Glasgow, and our local airports at Glasgow Prestwick, Inverness and Aberdeen are also well served from Europe and long haul destinations making golf in Scotland ideal for short golf trips and our one, two and three night stay and play golf offers.

Accommodation:  Bed & Breakfast, House, Hotel or Castle?

With our excellent relationships with the leading hotels, lodges and B&B's in Scotland including the world reknowned Old Course Hotel in St. Andrews, the MacDonald Hotels, the fabulous Hotel du Vin group and the modern Malmaison Hotels we have Scotland's golfing areas in the east, west, heartlands and highlands covered.

Self drive or guided with personalised driver?

Caddie Golf Tours have a good relationship and contract with Arnold Clark, Scotland's best vehicle hire company, who supply excellent rates for self drive vehicles which we  pass onto our clients.

Alternatively a driver and coach can be organised for your tour if you would prefer the 'no hassle' transport version. We have a number of dedicated Transport Operators that we use dependent on tour group size.
