Scotland's 10 best golf courses: A reader ranks his favorites

My personal top 10 golf courses in Scotland:

1. St. Andrews Old Course: What can I say?

2. Royal Dornoch GC Championship Course: True links, Old Tom Morris, history, spectacular views & a demanding round of golf.

3. Nairn GC Championship Course: A tough course, best greens ever, just awesome!

4. Boat-of-Garten GC: A truly magnificent heathland course with spectacular surroundings by James Braid.

5. Loch Lomond GC: Just beautiful!

6. Turnberry Ailsa course: This course is stunning. Nothing wee about the wee burn, though.

7. Carnoustie Championship Course: What can I say: Designed by Tom Morris and revamped by James Braid on land meant for golf.

8. Gleneagles Kings Course: Fantastic resort, unrivalled views, every shot is like a postcard.

9. St. Andrews Bay Resort Torrance Course: A new course, I know, but still my first-ever round on a links course. And it's a a fantastic resort!

10. Royal Aberdeen GC: Tight fairways, requires accuracy. Front nine is fantastic!

    No problem with most of them, but the Kings at Gleneagles is definitely not amongst them. Next time try Kingsbarns - a fantastic layout. Still a bit young but lots of fun, great greens and lovely views. A real test when the wind blows.
