I leave the best till last, as you are staying in the home of golf (Scotland never mind what the Americans say) we have some of the best golf courses in the World.
To name but a few within easy reach of the Bein Inn Hotel
Gleneagles (past hosts of the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup)
King James (a true island course set in the middle of the River Tay)
Ladybank (my home course and past qualifier for The OPEN)
Dumbarnie Links (Destined to be a top course on any ranking list and a true links)
The Dukes (owned by The Old Course Hotel overlooks St Andrews Bay)
Fairmont Hotel and golf ( the Torrance and the Kittocks are links style but not true links, just about every hole on both courses you have views of St Andrews Bay two great courses, fantastic seniors opens and other open competitions)
St Andrews Links Trust (with seven yes seven courses making it the largest public golf complex in Europe, including The Castle Course, The New Course, The Jubilee Course, The Balgrove Course, The Strathtyrum Course, The Eden Course, now have I left any out, oh yes possibly one.
The most famous course in the World home to the Dunhill Links The Seniors open, The British Ladies Open and of course The Worlds #1 The Open Championship.
Recognized as the worlds oldest Golf Course and the Top ten are all in the UK also having the most photographed bridge in Golf The Swilken Bridge Golf was first played here established in 1552
And of course all those are within a hours drive want to go further a nice two hour drive up east coast brings you to what most of those who have played it,
Say it’s the best course in Britain The Donalds course Trump International.
There are hundreds of small hidden gems in the area not world famous but great courses all the same.
