Just in time for The Open Championship going back to golf’s birthplace, The Old Course at St. Andrews, is offering a once-in-a-lifetime Scotland sweepstakes

(CHARLESTON, SC) — Playing golf in Scotland is more than just a vacation. It is a pilgrimage that regularly beckons the game’s truest connoisseurs — an experience that every golfer should enjoy at least once in their lifetime.

Scotland is the very cradle of the game, a country blessed with beautiful scenery, history and culture, plus the small matter of the most historic golf courses on the planet. From the iconic Open venues of St Andrews, Carnoustie, Turnberry and Prestwick to the classic Royal links of Dornoch, Aberdeen or Troon, the golfing vacation of a lifetime is guaranteed. Wherever you choose to base yourself — Edinburgh, St Andrews, the Highlands or the West Coast — can make your Scotland golf dreams a reality.

Now, in celebration of the world’s greatest golfers returning to compete at the Birthplace of the Game, is offering a rare Scotland sweepstakes. Starting July 13, American golfers will be eligible to win the Scotland sweepstake, which includes two nights Bed & Breakfast at Trump Turnberry, two nights B&B at Gleneagles, three nights B&B at Fairmont St Andrews and seven rounds of golf — Turnberry Kintrye and Ailsa, Gleneagles any course, Carnoustie, Kingsbarns, Fairmont St Andrews Torrance and Kittocks courses, as well as car rental for four.

With the three nights in St Andrews, will assist trying for the Old Course ballot, which would replace one of the Torrance or Kittocks rounds. If the winners are successful in the ballot then the Old Course green fee will be at their own cost on site. Register at

Built on the principles of outstanding choice, value and service, the privately owned company has an American office, based in Charleston, SC, and recently launched a website specifically for American golfers, — which will surely inspire anybody who has ever dreamed of teeing off at legendary links such as St Andrews, Royal Birkdale, Turnberry, Royal County Down or Royal Porthcawl.

“Our brand and identity in the UK and Ireland has been built upon saving golfers time and money,” said Daniel Grave, a founding partner of and CEO of Golfbreaks USA. “We save golfers time by booking all their tee times, accommodations, flights and ground transportation. We do all the running around for clients, putting their trips together and making life as easy as possible. And we save them money by getting them the best possible price — a price that is not only better than the competition, but also better than the price they would get if they tried to book the trip themselves.

“Many companies focus on the very top end of the golf market, and we would like to make a trip across the pond a reality for all U.S. golfers. We want to try to educate American golfers that it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to play golf in the British Isles. There are ways to do it, playing wonderful golf courses at a fraction of the cost and yet still having that unique golfing experience.”
