Vote on the Best Golf Holes in Scotland

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 15 Mar 2017 | Comments

With almost 600 courses, there are literally thousands of golf holes to choose from in Scotland, but which of them is the best? It has long been a debate, but now VisitScotland has launched an online poll to uncover the nation’s most beloved.

The poll, which includes some of the most famous golf courses in the world, will look to gather views from thousands of golfers worldwide to find golf holes in Scotland that have #ScotSpirit – a feature of the national tourism organisation’s Spirit of Scotland campaign.

From a shortlist of 26 courses spanning multiple regions of Scotland, golfers are being asked to vote for their favourite holes in seven distinct categories ranging from the best opening hole to the hole with the best view.

Including renowned holes such as the Postage Stamp at Royal Troon and the Road Hole at St Andrews to more hidden gems such as the 12th at Hopeman or the 6th at Lamlash, the poll seeks to find those holes that engender #ScotSpirit among golfers.

Malcolm Roughead, Chief Executive of VisitScotland, said: “Golf is one of Scotland’s great gifts to the world and we know that golfers experience a special feeling when they tee it up in the country where the game began. We call that feeling #ScotSpirit and we’re excited to launch this poll to find the holes that have the hairs standing up on the back of golfers’ necks.

“With so many fantastic courses across Scotland, the Home of Golf, this is no easy decision but we look forward to analysing the results and to find out which holes truly capture the Spirit of Scotland.”

The golf poll can be found at the below address and will run until 2 April 2017 with results expected by 12 April.
