Three unique events scheduled for the 2001 Scottish golf season provide the opportunity to combine championship golf with some of Scotland’s finest but lesser-known courses. There are Scottish Golf Classics in the programme open to all to play.

The opening event is the Highland Golf Classic from 7 – 10 May. It takes in the world famous links of Royal Dornoch and also includes competitive rounds at Tain – Glenmorangie whisky country – the delightful James Braid designed Fortrose and Rosemarkie course on the Black Isle and Nairn Dunbar, near neighbour of the Nairn championship links which hosted the Walker Cup in 1999.

The second Classic of the season is the Ayrshire Golf Classic from 9 – 12 July, immediately before the Open Championship. Feature course of the event is the famous Ailsa Course at Turnberry supported this year by the Open Championship qualifying courses at Kilmarnock Barassie and Irvine Bogside. The fourth venue is the highly acclaimed inland layout of Ayr Belleisle.

To complete the trio of Classics, the Speyside Golf Classic from 9 – 12 July takes competitors into some of the most magnificent scenery of the Scottish Highlands. Boat of Garten and Grantown on Spey are two courses on most visitors’ wish lists to this part of Scotland with Kingussie and Newtonmore completing the Speyside Classic group.

Prices range from £150 golf only to £250 with 4 nights accommodation for the Highland Classic, £185 golf only to £285 with 4 nights accommodation for the Ayrshire event and £115 golf only to £215 with 4 nights accommodation for the Speyside Classic.
