Episode 67 – The Undiscovered Links of the Highlands with Jason Scott Deegan

Jason Scott Deegan is a senior travel writer for Golf Channel’s Golf Advisor and has returned home after a mammoth week of golf in the Scottish Highlands. The purpose of the trip was simple and is summed up perfectly by Jason on the foreword of his detailed trip review on the Golf Advisor website.

Frankly, I got more satisfaction from discovering the links without much fanfare than I did checking off bucket-list destinations. Every country club member with a fat wallet and a can-do attitude about golf travel sees Dornoch and Trump. I like being different, seeing more and experiencing golf beyond the well worn path traversed by most Americans.

The game is so pure at Brora and Fraserburgh Golf Club and Tain Golf Club. It’s not about how long the courses are or which tournament they’re hosting next. It’s about interesting and unique golf holes in the dunes, simple as that.
