Tour Planning

The Golf Independent website is all about giving you the information you need to plan your golfing visit to Scotland.

Whether you book your trip yourself, or use us simply as a research tool, we aim to cover as much information as we can so you are prepared and ready to make the most of your trip.

This section of the website is for lots of useful tip and hints beyond just booking the tee-times for your golf tour. From our thoughts on booking caddies, through guiding you on the particulars of booking tee-times on the St Andrews Old course, or highlighting the key points of making bookings on any of Scotland's 5 Open Championship venues, we've got it right here.

Our list of Frequently Asked Questions covers everything from what to wear to what to tip. We hope you find them useful.

Have you visited our blog? We like to think of it as a mini-magazine of helpful articles for anyone planning a visit to Scotland to play golf. Our blog supplements our Tour Planning section with regular new additions. We've even provided a helpful summary of past articles so it's easy to find what might interest you.
