Simply put, if you're an American (on anyone else who can read English) and you want to travel abroad to play golf in Scotland, this book is "a must," the first one you should buy, and maybe the only one you really need. That is, unless you don't care about what the trip will cost and you have no difficulty letting other people make decisions for you. Mr. Ferguson gives you the ins and outs of making your own arrangements, the pros and cons of various approaches, and the highlights of a number of top-notch Scottish golf courses. He gives you the tools to do it on your own, without the tour company or travel agent . . . to create your own golfing adventure. Which is not to say that Mr. Ferguson will not work with you as non-comissioned, fee-based agent (as he's done with me), but it's also very clear he'd be just as happy, maybe more so, to have you buy the book and plan the adventure on your own (as I do now). By the way, the second book you ought to buy is James Finegan's "Where Golf is Great" (see my Amazon review), a judgment with which I feel certain Mr. Ferguson would not disagree.

You can scroll down to other reviews of this book, I would simply be repeating the praises that others have for this golf/travel guide.

I devoured this book in almost one sittting. The advice is sincere, genuine and as helpful as travel advice gets.

There is no mystery why everyone has rated this book five stars: it IS that good.

I am planning a trip to Scotland in 2009 for our regular foursome. With this book I have a good idea what our group needs to decide on before we go.

(E.g., Is playing at St. Andrews the major reason for our trip? Do we want to stay in a hotel/a B&B/a self-catering location? Do we want to stay in St. Andrews town itself or are we willing to pack up and re-locate to other locations? Do we want to spend $350 to play one fantastic course or 4 lesser-known links?)

This book is practical and I recommend it WITHOUT any reservation!

Planning a golf trip to Scotland, this is a great book to assist with that. The book is a bit dated and some of the lesser known hotels may not still be in business, however this will give you an idea about the areas, courses and what to expect. A perfect addition to a trip to Scotland. He also details many suggested trips and courses to play, going through each and offering helpful tips for everything, what town to stay in, and even discusses course history. Overall I would definitely recommend this book to aid in the planning of your "Golf" trip to Scotland.

Before things become critical let me state one thing. This is the best single resource for planning your own golf trip from the USA to Scotland, though there are a few limitations.
1) Scotland has over 500 golf courses. The 68 selected in the book include all of the most expensive courses in Scotland. The book advises to think of this trip as " your first golf trip to Scotland" rather than the "golf trip of a lifetime." But subsequently orients the reader to the most expensive courses available. Notable areas that are barely covered in the book are the Northeast Coast with excellent courses such as Reay, Wick, Buckpool, Hopeman, Cullen, Arbroath and Inverllochy, though the author does mention Fraserburgh and Duff House Royal. Also the municipal courses of Aberdeen are not mentioned at all, but include a course designed by Alister Mackenzie and the original links of the Royal Aberdeen Club. Also there are 2 Fore 1 , Green Fee and Green Free vouchers where you can play many courses at 50% discount that are excellent courses. This is mentioned by the author but not noted in the course descriptions in the book.
2) The lodging selections by the author also include the most expensive lodging in each town. Get on Google map or trip advisor and you can find excellent lodging in most towns for less than 50 pounds per person per night, some for less than 30 pounds.
If you have the funds and want royal treatment then by all means enjoy. However if you wish to explore Scotland, rub elbows with the locals and get more bang for the buck, start with this book and get on the web and start looking around. You can have a great trip for less!

My only reget about this book is that I didn't find it sooner. Those who call Allan ``the Rick Steves of Scottish golf'' are right on the money. Speaking of which, merely by booking our car through Allan, we saved hundreds (thousands if you include the two other cars our friends booked) and we got great vehicles. The reviews nail the golf courses. They give an idea of what to expect, and help you choose. ``Golf in Scotland'' is loaded with information about where to stay and play, and how to get the most out of your trip. His discussion of how to play the Old Course, and how to book other courses, with prices etc., is invaluable. Can't wait to start planning our next Scottish excursion, with Allan's book as our guide.

Fantastic guide for all golfers to golf courses in Scotland, especially the sea side links. I recently became smitten with the idea of taking some friends over to the Scotland for some golf on old courses. This book provides very helpful information on setting up tee times, travel, lodging and the courses themselves. If you are thinking about going, this is the book that you need to read.

Having just finished a two week trip to Scotland, this book was recommended to me as a MUST. It did not understate the case. It is filled with all the important information one needs to do Scotland right. Ferguson helped me pack the right stuff. He describes the courses and their environments quite well. With 12 courses in 12 days our group had a terrific time and I can't help but think Ferguson's guidance made a huge difference.
