Scotland: the Perfect Place for a Golfing Holiday
What makes Scotland such a great place to play golf? The answer is totally obvious: the scenery. The landscape of Scotland is the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely outdoor sport like golf. Away from the busy towns and cities of England, you can enjoy your golf game in fresh air and peace.
Another reason to play golf in Scotland is to play in the game’s birthplace. While the true origins of golf remain a mystery, it is fair to say that the modern game we now call golf originated in Scotland in the 15th century.
