Royal Troon 11th hole

© Kevin Murray

World's best golf tour (par 5)

St Andrews Old Course, Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Carnoustie, Muirfield, or North Berwick, Trump Turnberry, Kingsbarns, Royal Troon & Gleneagles

Faraway Fairways describe our ‘par 5’ tour as the best golf package tour in the world … because …. well because it is. OK, it would be theoretically possible to play a combination of similarly ranked courses in the United States, but you’d need influence in very high places to get access to them, and to do so in a single week?. By contrast the ‘par 5’ golf tour is an explosion of gloriously accessible golf, combining the very best of Scotland with Ireland. 

Make no mistake, the golf is world class. Six courses, rated by inside the world’s top-30 speaks for itself. Royal County Down #1 and Royal Portrush #15 provide the beguiling Irish magic. Turnberry, #16 ensures drama and beauty. Kingsbarns #69 is always immaculately presented and fast developing a reputation as one of Scotland’s must play venues. The inland estate of Gleneagles has a regal majesty. St Andrews #3, Muirfield #9 and Royal Troon #49 lend a quintessential element of class, whilst Carnoustie #26, introduces an essential uncompromising brutality.

The content of all tours are sold subject to availability and final confirmation of price. We do not speculatively book hotels in advance. Where tee-times and geographic proximity permits, golfers will be able to participate in activities identified for non-golfers

Important note - with Muirfield & County Down in the schedule this is always difficult to set up and will need planning at least 12 months in advance. Playing away from busy periods will help your prospects

Faraway Fairways

Global golf doesn’t get much better than this. Why? Well put simply, because it can’t! It’s not just the fact that Scotland's golf links are iconic, world class, and soaked in history. They’re also accessible and all in a land about the size of South Carolina. On top of the apex golf offer, introducing you to Scotland beyond her fairways is an important piece to the Faraway Fairways approach. Think of it as 'Golf plus Scotland'.
