Golf

Fenton Tower is an ideal location for your Scottish golf vacation, whether you are a player or a spectator. There are over 100 courses within 20-30 miles of Fenton Tower and 15 within 10 miles! These include Gullane, North Berwick and Luffness. Muirfield, host of the 2002 British Open is just 3 miles away. St Andrews is only 22 miles away “as the crow flies”. We have our own helicopter landing pad, so getting to where you want to be can be made that little bit easier.

We recommend booking your golf well in advance. There is room at the Tower to practice before you go out, our guests spend many happy hours chipping balls onto our island.
