Scotland ~ September 22 - 30, 2016

Join Sarasota members for golf and sightseeing in Scotland - where the golf game originated! Rental cars will give you the freedom to roam and explore the sites most interesting to your individual preferences.


On Friday, September 22nd, the flight departs from Tampa to Edinburgh, Scotland. Upon arrival, you can load your group into your own rental car and proceed to our first three nights lodging in Saint Andrews. Seven golf courses are just a stone’s throw away, including St. Andrews Old Course and KingsBarn.

From there group members will proceed north about 120 miles to Inverness for three additional nights to be near Castle Stuart Golf Links, home of 4 Scottish Opens, Royal Dornoch, and any other famous courses your heart desires in this area.

For the non-golfers in the group, the sightseeing and history will be majestic with the opportunity to see Scotland like few others have seen. Make Loch Ness one of the destinations and see if you can spot “Nessie”…….and if you can’t find her, stop in one of the many local pubs, have a few……..then take another look

We’ll have a get together every evening at a cute pub nearby to share our stories and plan our next day’s activities with one another! Dinner is on your own or with your friends!

For the final night return to the city to be close to the airport for departure back to the States!

For those people wanting to go on a terrific and fun trip, please fill out a trip application and mail to the address below with your $500 deposit made payable to the Ski Club of Sarasota.
