Of course it should come as no surprise that Scotland, recognised as the home of golf, enjoys almost half of the UK’s Top 25 golf courses – with 12 in the country. It also enjoys a further 8 of the UK’s Top50 courses and another 4 in the Top 100 – and that is just the ones that allow visitors without the need to be a members guest. But perhaps more surprising is that there are still large number of Great Value golf courses in Scotland – we have found over 40 courses with visitor green fees under £40 – 14 of which are our very special Hidden Gems.
