When traveling to far-flung golfing destinations, it is wise to enlist the help of an experienced travel company. Andrew Harper’s travel partner Adventures In Golf has been arranging complex international itineraries since 1977. Scotland is a particular specialty, and staff based in the United Kingdom can secure tee times at all of the most celebrated courses, including the Old Course at St. Andrews. They are also experienced in arranging guided excursions to famous castles, gardens and distilleries, as well as shooting and fishing trips for golfers who wish to put aside their clubs for a day. Helicopter transfers can be scheduled for those who do not wish to drive, so remote gems such as Machrihanish become easy day trips from a central base. The company also boasts particular expertise in England, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal and New Zealand. Tel. (877) 424-7320.
