Season 2: Scotland Tourist Sauce, Season 2: Royal Dornoch

As mentioned in the episode, Royal Dornoch rolls all the best elements of Scottish golf into one package. It’s generally rugged yet the playing surfaces are refined, located seaside yet offers some elevation change, features…

Season 2: Scotland Tourist Sauce, Season 2: Brora

Brora is a special course, and the place I’d most want to play everyday in Scotland. There aren’t a ton of individual holes that stick out (unlike Dornoch or Berwick), rather it’s consistently solid throughout….

Season 2: Scotland Tourist Sauce, Season 2: Nairn

Season 2: Scotland Tourist Sauce, Season 2: Crail

The Crail Golfing Society is the seventh oldest golf course in the world, and possibly the most terrifying if you’re spraying the ball at all off the tee. I mean that jokingly, as you learn…

Season 2: Scotland Tourist Sauce, Season 2: The Old Course

A host of elements make the Old Course what it is. Most often people focus on the history of the course, and for good reason. Simultaneously, however, the history sometimes detracts from what makes the…

Season 2: Scotland Tourist Sauce, Season 2: Musselburgh

Are you a museum person? I am, sort of, depends on what type of museum, I guess. What I like most about any museum, though, are the interactive displays and exhibits that are able to…
