Gourmet Golf in Scotland
Gourmet Golf in Scotland is a short golf blog describing some of the best Golf & Food combinations in Scotland.
Now, I know that everyone has different taste buds and that everyone has a different budget, but this is my guide.
I have spent many happy years researching this topic and putting this blog post together.
My list of top Golf & Food combinations in Scotland.
Scotscraig Golf Club – The Newport Restaurant
The course at Scotscraig is great and is very little known outside of Scotland. This is a cracking track that will suit every taste and ability of golfer. Often used as an Open Qualifying course it is a little gem.
Follow that with food at The Newport Restaurant that you will never forget. Jamie Scott (Winner of Masterchef 2017) has created a fantastic, casual dining experience that is second to none. What this guy can do with humble ingredients is ridiculous. Highly recommended!
Gullane Golf Club – The Bonnie Badger
There are several courses to play at Gullane Golf Club. Gullane 1 & 2 are probably the best tests of golf. Whichever you decide to play, Beware, it can get really windy! Don’t forget to visit the Gullane Pro-Shop for a look around.
This establishment, In the town of Gullane, is a part of Tom Kitchin’s group of restaurants. Be prepared to be wowed from the kitchen in lovely surroundings that makes The Bonnie Badger a real treat for most culinary experts.
Gleneagles Golf – The Dormy Restaurant
If you have never been here, then make it happen. Gleneagles is the home of the 2014 Ryder Cup and has several courses to choose from. My favourite is The Kings Course. A visit to the hotel is a must to buy a few presents.
Situated in the Gleneagles clubhouse, The Dormy Restaurant has been newly refurbished and introducing an exciting new menu to its diners. Food and drink here is great and reasonably priced for such an experience. Look out for the Chicken Makhani! mmmhhhhh!
Blairgowrie Golf – The Meikleour Arms
Golf at Blairgowrie is amazing. The Rosemount course and the Lansdowne course are great tests of Golf with beautiful surroundings. The Wee Course is also a little gem. There is something for everyone at Blairgowrie Golf.
If you are wanting something a little different to eat, then head over to The Meikleour Arms for a tasty treat. This is a lovely pub that has had a great makeover and the food here is a delight.
Royal Dornoch – Dornoch Castle Hotel
The Championship Course at Royal Dornoch is one of the best Links courses in Scotland. This has to be on every golfer’s bucket list. Definitely, one not to be missed because Tom Watson puts Royal Dornoch in his top 5 golf courses.
In the town square of Dornoch, you will find the Dornoch Castle Hotel. ‘Grant MacNicol at the Castle‘ is the restaurant where you will find amazing, locally sourced, produce that is cooked to perfection. This makes a great day out.
Duddingston Golf Club – The Kitchin
Found in the city of Edinburgh, the Golf at Duddingston is not to be missed. A lovely traditional golf course which is a great test of golf and always in good condition. A great test of golf in the shadows of the famous old volcano ‘Arthur’s Seat’
Tom Kitchin is Scotland’s number one chef and this is his playground. The Kitchin is without a doubt the best dining experience in Scotland. If you want to feel special whilst soaking up an amazing atmosphere with stunning food and friendly staff, then this is it. You will be talking about this one for the rest of your life.
Gourmet Golf in Scotland, who would have thought and not a deep-fried Mars Bar insight.
