It is a pretty difficult task to sift through the golf courses of Scotland and pick out a favourite. Thousands of golfers suffer with the same difficulty since Scottish lands are host to so many incredible golf courses, many with unique views and scenic passage over some of the best countryside that anyone will ever lay eyes on. St. Andrews Old Course is probably the first that comes to mind for many golfers, but few courses are as fair or evenly balanced as that of Muirfield.
Courses in Scotland rarely come with such an eventful and awe-inspiring history than that of the Carnoustie course. Those that have played at St. Andrew's Old Course will have stood a mere 9 miles away from Carnoustie since all that separates the two is said distance, with the Firth of Tay laying between the two, separating by only a (relatively) fine margin between two of the finest golf courses that Scotland has to offer.
It may quite an obvious choice to review the Ailsa course since it is quite well-renowned as one of the finest that the fantastic land of Scotland has to offer, but it's not as obvious a choice as say, going straight for St. Andrew's Old Course. Ailsa could comfortably be described as one of, if not the most scenic open championship-level course in the whole of the country.
