Glenisla at Alyth is usually on full tees/greens year round and Drumoig in Fife is great for the winter.

Drumoig is only closed if it's physically covered in snow, otherwise full greens etc all year!

Played Drumoig a few weeks ago and it is a lovely course with a few challenging holes, well worth a visit for winter golf. Was kind of hoping the next GM Scotland Outing was held here

Both of these are in Fife and will be played using full tees/fairways/greens, no mats in sight.

Charelton Golf Club @ £15

St. Andrews Bay @ £99 per tee time (has two courses)

Andy, am i mistaken in believing that links courses play full course all year round?
26/10/2006 at 21:32
You are mistaken. The only links course that I have been able to play without dropping to the side or to temp green's or a combination of both is my course, Turnberry.

Kinghorn in fife is usually full course. you are more likely to get full course on a links course in the winter though.
26/10/2006 at 22:21
Sory I ment to say the only links courses that I play a lot in the winter are Turnberry, Lochgreen , Darley & Kilmarnock Barassie.

You guys obviously know your courses in Scotland. If you haven't already, it would help us - and other golfers looking for a game north of the border - to review the courses you've played in our GM user-reviews for a chance to win one of two pairs of Stuburt shoes we give away every month.

Mention, too, whether, in your experience, they play on full or temporary greens during the winter months.

We've already got over 2,000 course reviews in the system but that's never enough to satisfy the demand for information, especially when travelling around Scotland - and some the more remote courses still need a review.

Thanks in anticipation we look forward to hearing from you. ED

So John, when are we going to get a GM group invite to Turnberry :-) ??

Hi Andy why dont you try Crail the seventh oldest Club in the world with a choice of two courses,if it is'nt frosty courses will be open. We even have a winter Membership for six months.The east coast of Scotland is always the best in winter cheers.
