Scotland offers a range of golfing venues to suit different incentives and weather conditions

Castle Stuart New Club House: This golf resort, which opened in 2009, offers a championship links course on the shores of the Moray Firth. The top floor has a lounge, dining area and balcony for private use. There are plans to add a luxury 75-bedroom hotel and spa and a second 18-hole links course.

Earl of Mar: this 18-hole championship course, opened in May this year, is located ten minutes from Glasgow Airport, with views of the River Clyde and the Kilpatrick Hills. It opened in May 2010 and the venue can host special golf clinics by prior arrangement.

The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa: This venue sits on the oldest golf course in the world and has a range of conference and banqueting facilities including a self-contained conference centre.

Ramada Ayr: The hotel has launched a golf simulator enabling guests to perfect their swing on 50 courses over five continents, whatever the weather. The hotel has seven conference rooms catering for up to 200 delegates.

Turnberry: This resort in Ayrshire offers meeting facilities for small gatherings and for groups of up to 200. New this year is the The Turnberry Suite, which overlooks golfing links, open water and the island of Ailsa Craig.

Trump’s Golf Course and Resort: Set to open in 2012, Donald Trump’s championship links golf course is located in the North-East of Scotland and will offer resort accommodation and additional leisure facilities.
