When you think golf and you think back to when the game was first played you automatically think Scotland. So where better to hold the 9th Ukrainian World Golf Challenge than in the home of golf? Scotland has some of the best courses in the world with a fine mixture of links and parkland there is something to suit everyone’s’ tastes and test all abilities. Scotland is not only famous though for its golf as its heritage is world renowned and beautifully picturesque. From the deepest Lochs to the highest Glens you'll find plenty to see and do whilst relaxing and enjoying your stay. On the outskirts of Edinburgh we will enjoy 7 nights of luxury accommodation and service at The Dalmahoy Marriott Hotel & Country Club. This fine manor house will be our base from which we will explore the delights of Scotland. This week-long event promises to not only continue the tradition of excellence set by previous challenges in Prague, China, Germany, Vancouver, Australia, Hawaii, Spain, and Florida, but also to give you a uniquely Scottish cultural and golfing experience at the birthplace of golf.

St. Andrews Eden Course
Only slightly more forgiving than its contemporaries on the seaward side of the Links, the Eden Course was built in 1914 by Harry S. Colt whose use of natural boundaries and severe bunkers provides a course full of character.
The greens on the Eden course are the most undulating of all greens shared by the St Andrews Links trust and most defiantly should be treated with respect. On the outward nine there is not an un-interesting hole as they wind their way through the famous links.

St. Andrews Jubilee Course
The third oldest championship course at the Home of Golf, the Jubilee is considered by many to be the most challenging course on the famous Links. Built in 1897, it was originally intended for use by ladies and beginners; however, after seeing its prime golfing location between the New Course and the sea, the Jubilee was converted to a championship layout in 1988. It has hosted many prestigious amateur events including the British Amateur Championships.

The Musselburgh Golf Club
Musselburgh is a top class championship course designed by James Braid in 1938. The length from the championship tees is a testing 6725 yards and with a par 71, SSS 72 it is a quality test of golf. Built round a bend of the river Esk, it has relatively flat tree-lined yet generous fairways. The Craigie burn meanders over some fairways giving golfers the option of laying up short or going for the carry leaving a shorter approach to the green.
To have any hope of conquering this course you have to be able to keep the ball in play while still being long off the tee. Although it is not easy, it is still a very enjoyable course to play, which is proven by the fact that many visitors return time after time.

Dalmahoy East Course
In 2005, the prestigious East Course completed a £1 million redevelopment and is now a true championship venue once more.
The course is a monster at over 7,400 yards, however for corporate events and members' competitions, it is set at a more manageable 6,684 yards.
The East Course has hosted major championships such as the first ever Solheim Cup in 1992, the Scottish PGA Championship on numerous occasions and the Scottish Seniors Open in 2006, 2007 and 2008. There are some great holes to be played, especially on the back nine. The 17th is ominously named "The Wee Wrecker" and will test your ability to continue that memorable round.

PLUS access* to...
St. Andrews Old Course
The Old Course, considered by many to be the "home of golf", is one of the oldest golf courses in the world, a public course over common land. It is held in trust by The St Andrews Links Trust under an act of Parliament. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St.Andrews club house sits adjacent to the first tee.
One of the unique features of the Old Course are the large double greens. Seven greens are shared by two holes each, with hole numbers adding up to 18 (2nd paired with 16th, 3rd with 15th, all the way up to 8th and 10th). The Swilken Bridge, spanning the first and 18th holes, has become a famous icon for golf in the world. Everyone who plays the 18th hole walks over this 700-year-old bridge, and many iconic pictures of the farewells of the most iconic golfers in history have been taken on this bridge. The Open Championship has been staged at the Old Course at St Andrews 29 times.
