Important Experience Information
What airports should I plan to fly in and out of?
You’ll want to schedule your flight to arrive into Edinburgh (EDI) or Aberdeen (ABZ) and depart from either Inverness (INV) or Edinburgh.
Your first stop on this Experience is the Malmaison Hotel, Aberdeen, which is about 120 minutes from the Edinburgh Airport or 20 minutes from Aberdeen. Edinburgh Airport is serviced better by direct flights from the U.S or by transfers from London Heathrow (LHR) or Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS)
The included airport transfers for this Experience will be from the Edinburgh/Aberdeen Airport to the Malmaison Hotel, Aberdeen on September 25th, 2022 and a departure from the Kingsmills Hotel to the Inverness Airport and/or Edinburgh Airport on October 2nd, 2022.
Please contact the Concierge Team if we can be of assistance with arranging alternative airport transportation or assist with booking flights.
What will the weather be like during our stay?
A typical day in Scotland in September could bring sunshine, clouds, mist, rain, and wind. The average temperatures for May through mid-October typically range between
55-75 Fahrenheit. Extremes are rare in Scotland, as it tends to not be overly warm or cold.
What currencies are used Scotland?
The currency utilized in Scotland is the British Pound. The Pound is currently trading at 1.53 USD to 1.00 GBP.
Will I be able to get cash and use credit cards while in Scotland?
You will find that most major credit cards and debits cards are nearly universally accepted in Scotland. The same is true of Travelers checks, which should be in Pounds to avoid extra exchange rate charges. ATMs are ubiquitous throughout Scotland so you will have easy access to cash. It should be noted that American Express is not as widely accepted in Europe as Visa and MasterCard.
How much cash should I bring?
We recommend bringing minimal US dollars, i.e. $75-100, with you and then
accessing the local ATM’s upon arriving in Scotland The ATM’s will dispense the local currency and your bank will automatically calculate the exchange rate. Your own bank will typically provide the most favorable exchange rate available to you.
How many meals are included?
A full Scottish breakfast will be served every morning. The Garmany Golf Concierge Team can assist with making any reservations and recommendations for the group for additional meals not included in the Experience.
What is the cancellation policy for this Experience?
All deposits and final payments are non refundable. However, we highly recommend purchasing a travel insurance program through Travel Guard and we will be happy to provide a quote for The Deluxe Travel Policy
This policy will allow you to cancel for a variety of reasons and receive a 50% refund of all fees paid, including airfare. Please contact a Garmany Golf Concierge if you would like a quote for travel insurance.
What if I want to play additional and optional golf?
There are plenty of championship links courses in each of the areas that you’ll be
staying in Scotland! If any Guest wants to play additional golf, even at the spur of the moment, a Garmany Golf Concierge can arrange optional golf for you. Optional golf can be arranged well in advance of your departure as well. Please consult the Concierge Team for golf options.
Can I play 36 holes a day if I want to?
Absolutely! Please let a member of our Concierge Team know and we will be happy to set up additional tee times for you.
How do I arrange for a caddie and how much do they cost?
The experience that comes from walking the course with a caddie cannot be overstated. The local caddies will not only be more adept at keeping you out of more trouble than a seeing eye dog, they will also regale you with great stories about the history of the areas and the courses. They are without a doubt, some of the best entertainment value you can experience in Scotland
All caddie fees are due at the course on the day of play and each Guest will be responsible for caddie fees and gratuities. Caddie gratuities are payable in cash, preferably in the local currency.
We highly recommend arranging caddies with our Concierge Team prior to your departure to ensure the maximum availability.
Caddies fees range from £40-60 for the base fee plus gratuity. A typical gratuity for good service might be £15-20.
Are golf carts available?
The golf courses in Scotland, for the most part, tend to be shorter and flatter than the courses you're likely used to playing. In other words, they were built for walking.
Some courses have carts, or buggies as they're known in Scotland, but they have a limited number of them and they can be a bit more expensive than what we’re used to in America, running £30 or more.
Buggies are not guaranteed to be available due to the limited supply and strict requirements to reserve one; all requests should be made well in advance in order to be able to reserve one.
If you wish to request a cart, please know that a medical certificate may be required. Some courses tend to have a limited number of carts so in order to give you the best chance to reserve one, please provide Garmany Golf with your cart request at the earliest possible time.
Can I ship my golf clubs?
Yes! We partner with Ship Sticks, the leading club shipping provider for the PGA TOUR,
and can easily arrange to have your clubs shipped directly to Scotland prior to your arrival and back home so you can travel with ease and without hassle or worry of your clubs being lost or delayed due to the airlines.
- This Experience is priced in U.S. Dollars.
- For the cancellation policy for this Experience, please see Terms and Conditions below.
