The word most Americans hear is that scheduling tee times on
Scotland golf courses is difficult. This is only true if you aim to play the courses that are venues for the British Open. These are the Scotland golf courses most frequented by American golfers who are not aware of the wide range
of other excellent Scotland golf courses.

Tee Times for Other Scottish Golf Courses
But, the Independent Golfer knows that there are many other golf courses scattered across Scotland, including:
- World-Class Scotland Golf Courses
- Scotland's "Hidden Gems"
- The "Home" Courses That Most Scots Play
For these courses, the booking picture is much less limiting. These golf courses welcome American visitors and they are still
so undiscovered that they present few problems with finding a tee time.
it is probably wise to verify that tee times are available at the Scotland golf courses you plan to play. A number of golf travel books recommend that you write ahead to the club secretary requesting a tee time, explaining who you are and assuring them that you are an experienced golfer knowledgeable in the etiquette.
This is old advice. There are three other methods of securing exactly the tee time you want at any Scotland golf course you want to play. Each is easier than writing and mailing letters and all will probably produce better results more quickly.
The Independent Golfer's Guide describes each of these three methods in detail so that you can be assured that you will be able to play where you want and when you want.
