Our Morris Package is named after legendary golfer and course architect Old Tom Morris. A man who lived an adventurous life in the golfing world lending his name and his keen architectural eye to some of the most famous golf courses in the world. He is also credited in hitting the opening tee shot at the first Open Championship in 1860 at Prestwick Golf Club, a competition he went on to win 4 times. Being influential in the creation of arguably golf’s most famous competition and designing some of Scotland's most famous golfing tracks. We have pulled together a selection of his finest courses in honour of one of golf’s true legends.


Day One

You will arrive in Glasgow where you will be met with a member of the Lang Atholl team who will present your group with the keys to your luxury 4x4. 

Next you will drive west into Ayrshire to the town of Troon where you will check in at Lochgreen House. Here you will play one of the most famous Open venues, Prestwick Golf Club. A course which held the first ever championship in 1860 and held the competition a further 24 times with the last being in 1925. 


Day Two

Day two will see you drive east from Ayrshire through the Scottish capital of Edinburgh to arrive at the fantastic Greywalls Hotel & Chez Roux located close to your next famous golfing track, Muirfield Golf Club. With the golf club first coming together in 1744 Muirfield is one of the oldest golf clubs in the history of the sport and the club is credited with writing the first set of rules seen for competition golf. Originally based in Leith the club moved to its current location in 1891 and through its many years of colourful history has hosted some of the most memorable Open Championships to date. 


Day Three

Day three will see you travel north past Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh, over the Firth of Forth to St Andrews where you will spend the evening in the Old Course Hotel. St Andrews was Old Tom Morris’ home for the majority of his life and it is also the town where he was laid to rest. His grave still lies in the town cemetery to this day next to that of his son, Young Tom Morris, who himself was an Open Champion despite passing away at the age of 24. 

Morris’s legendary touch is seen throughout St Andrews but here you will have the opportunity to play one of two courses which he arguably had most influence on in the town; The Jubilee Course and of course The Old Course itself. Due to the conditions of play on the Old Course times cannot be guaranteed and you will enter the ballot for a chance to play. If unsuccessful then you will play your round at the home of golf on the spectacular Jubilee Course.


Day Four 

On day four you will travel north towards the city of Dundee, near which you will find Carnoustie another of Scotland’s spectacular Open Venues which last held the championships in 2007 where there was the dramatic end between Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia with the Irishman claiming his first major title. This fantastic old course has witnessed some of the most spectacular sights in Open history and it is your venue for today’s round. 

You will then travel north once more to the coastal oil rich city of Aberdeen where you will spend the evening at the luxurious Marcliffe Hotel and Spa. The Granite City as it is known by nationals of the country has a soft ambience about it and is one of the lesser visited areas by those exploring the country. 


Day Five

Day five sees you travel north once more to Cruden Bay near PeterheadCruden Bay was another of Old Tom Morris’s architectural masterpieces with the view from the 9th hole being voted the best view in Scottish golf.

Your final evening will be spent in 
Inverlochy Castle Hotel a property which is nestled in the foothills of Ben Nevis. Inverlochy was built in 1863 by the first Lord Abinger, near the site of the original 13th century fortress. During a trip to Balmoral in 1873, Queen Victoria spent a week at Inverlochy sketching and painting where she wrote in her diaries 'I never saw a lovelier or more romantic spot'.
