For any of those who like to tee off and hit the fairways one place that must be visited at least once in a lifetime is Scotland. As the home of golf and its birthplace the heritage is there for all to see. A great way to visit as many golf courses as possible is to hire a car and self drive. Car hire means you can travel at your own pace and also means you can lug your golf clubs around with ease, after all; public transport and a huge golf bag is rarely advisable.

Scotland probably has the most famous golf course in the world; St Andrew's, the scene of so many tournament culminations is a wonder to play while approaching the eighteenth hole is a sight to behold, allowing you to trace the footsteps of some of the legends of the game. Parking is extensive meaning that a hire car is the perfect way to access this unique course. Do remember to book before you even plan the rest of your trip to Scotland as teeing off times are hard to come by and booking months in advance is usually a prerequisite.

St Andrew's is not the only championship course located in Scotland accessible to you in your hire car. A wealth of courses that will constantly challenge are present, so if a pro or an amateur enjoyment is guaranteed. Of these Muirfield, Royal Troon and Carnoustie are the most famous and offer playing conditions of sparkling variety and will push your golfing skills to the limit. Do not fear however if you are travelling on a budget, there are many more affordable courses in Scotland that are well worth a visit in your hire car.

No matter what side of the country you are located it is doubtless that a golf course will be close by. In Scotland golf is more of an institution than a sport and if travelling in a hire car it will seem as if there is a golf course at every turn. From the highlands to the lowlands and coastal areas there are courses to suit every skill level.

If travelling the Highlands in your hire car there is a fascinating mix of golf and history on offer. Famed course designer James Braid's work is in ascendancy in this part of Scotland with courses showing his true genius to its full extent. Nestling in the Cairngorms the views are spectacular and provide the perfect backdrop for a round. It is not just mountain courses however; links courses are prevalent throughout the Highlands, naturally with Braid's guiding hand involved in their design.

If links courses are your preference, heading along the coast of Scotland is highly advisable. As you traverse the coastal roads in your hire car you will be amazed by the breathtaking rugged beauty of this stretch of coast; and that's before you have even teed off. The Elie Golf Course, although where Braid learnt to play actually has no sign of his handiwork in its design. Whilst a course such as Scotsgraig offers a challenging mix between links and heathland holes, showing the great variability of courses in Scotland.

Whatever your skill level the golf courses in Scotland have something to offer everyone. Twin this with the enthralling history and friendly inhabitants and it makes it a holiday of wondrous enjoyment for all who undertake it. With stunning scenery varying from rugged coastline to impressive mountains it is a feast for the eyes. If you enjoy a round and even if you just want to sample some of this fascinating culture, Scotland is an excellent destination.
