Faraway Fairways

Golf Tour

St Andrews, Fife

    Welcome to Faraway Fairways

    We've assembled a portfolio of golf tours to challenge, entertain, and even educate

    We realise we're less expensive than many of the American operators, but there is a reason for that. We can source locally.

    We also believe that you will take much more from your visit if you engage with Scotland, the country, and its people

    We do Club and Country!

    That involves the mystery and history of the Highlands, the engaging hospitality of Edinburgh, and the bunkers of Stirling and battlefields of Bannockburn

    When you return home and compare notes with your buddies, you're more rounded experience will ensure that you're 'nearest the flag'

    Public Transport Directions

    Driving in the UK can sometimes be a bit daunting if you're coming in from overseas. Leaving aside things like navigation, there are also strange highway laws, signage, and hazards like 'roundabouts' to negotiate. All this has to be done of course driving on the left-hand side of the road, with a right-hand steer vehicle, and possibly using a manual gear shift. It's also worth remembering that the UK is a small land-mass and traffic frequently experiences congestion. Stepping straight-off a plane and being immediately pitched into this melee isn't fun for the unaccustomed! If you're unlucky enough to damage the vehicle in the process, you can also find yourself taking an additional charge. Ideally you want you're opening drive to be hit from the first tee, not the Edinburgh one-way system.

    A lot of American based operators will offer self-drive options. We can do that too. It isn't difficult to arrange. We can't help but feel however, that this is a reflection on their own remoteness from the point of delivery rather than a customer preference?. It's possibly easier to transfer the stress and responsibility to the customer rather than having to arrange and manage everything from 4000 miles away?

    We make an escorted drive our default provision as it takes away the burden. As it happens the costs involved are not significantly different, indeed, under certain circumstances the escorted driver option can actually work to be less expensive

    We offer you both options, but the fact that we make the escorted drive our default should be interpreted by those of you weighing things as to where our firm recommendation lies

    Watching the Ryder Cup is one thing, (and very good it is too) but how about playing in one?

    From a choice of courses including the 'real McCoy' at Gleneagles, the Ayrshire jewel of Turnberry, the monsters of Carnoustie Country, the windswept links of Fife, to the slightly more social settings of Edinburgh, this exclusive VIP offer gives you the chance to get as close to the roller-coaster of the real thing as many of us ever will.
