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 International Airport (EDI) and depart from either Glasgow International Airport (GLA) which is closer to the West Coast or from Edinburgh (EDI).
Please contact the GG 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 day in Scotland in April typically sees crisp cool days. The average high temperature dips a few degrees to around 55 Fahrenheit, although in recent years it has also been known to reach as high as 68 Fahrenheit.
What currencies are used in Scotland?
The currency utilized in Scotland is the British Pound. The Pound is currently trading at 1.27 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 debit 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 ATMs upon arriving in Scotland. The ATM 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 GG 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 assist with a quote to insure your travel investment.
Please contact a GG Concierge if you would like assistance with a quote for travel insurance.
What if I want to play additional and optional golf?
There are plenty of championship links courses in and around St. Andrews, East Lothian and Ayrshire. If any Guest wants to play additional golf, even at the spur of the moment, a GG Concierge would be able to arrange optional golf for you. Optional golf can be arranged well in advance of your departure as well. Please consult the GG Concierge Team for golf options.
Can I play 36 holes a day if I want to?
Yes, it is absolutely possible. However, depending on the tee time of the first round it would be possible. 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 £55-70 for the base fee plus gratuity. A typical gratuity for good service might be £20-30.
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 GG 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.
The Garmany Difference
Can passion be a differentiator? You bet it can! Especially when that passion, to do it better, to go beyond, to exceed expectations, is exercised in the interest of making sure our Guests have the Experience of a lifetime.
We work incredibly hard at building great relationships with every Partner who will play a role in your Experience, whether it be a golf course, a hotel, a ground transportation provider or ANY OTHER critical component in your journey. Those trusted relationships will be a difference maker when you become a Garmany Guest!
Everyone knows that travel and big events are ripe with opportunities for frustrations, of all types and varieties. NO BRAINER. SEAMLESS. EASY. When a Garmany Golf Guest describes the process of creating their Experience, arriving, departing, being at a foreign place and all of the logistics involved, with those words? Well, that’s us doing what we do.
