Rocco Forte Hotels

Set amidst windswept dunes and sweeping fairways, Archerfield Links is one of Scotland’s most prestigious golf courses. Each round on its greens presents the most seasoned of sportsmen with a unique challenge, set against the breath-taking Scottish landscapes that first inspired modern golf. Stride out in the footsteps of Masters Champions and improve your handicap under the guidance of a PGA professional as part of a sumptuous 3-night stay at The Balmoral, Edinburgh’s most distinguished hotel.

Feel pampered yet at home in one of our stylish signature suites, adorned with period furnishings, art and antiques, and offering inimitable views over the capital’s historic quarter. An exquisite welcome gift by renowned Scotch jeweller, Hamilton & Inches, awaits you on arrival. This unique keepsake was hand-crafted especially for guests of The Balmoral.

Head down to the serene Balmoral Spa for your 120-minute nourishing Forte Facial and restorative Forte Body Ritual by Irene Forte Skincare, sure to ease any residual tension from your journey. To offer you a taste of traditional Scottish flavours, a 5-course tasting menu with paired wines at Michelin-starred restaurant Number One is also included.

When you’re ready for a round, you’ll enjoy a chauffeured executive transfer to exclusive club Archerfield Links, where you’ll be welcomed by a PGA professional. Enjoy a one-on-one analysis of your game and benefit from expert advice, before putting it into practise by taking a swing on the 3D training programme. And then it’s up to you: choose between two 18-hole links courses; the fast-running, coastal Fidra and the DJ Russell-designed Dirleton, made all the more rewarding by the rugged landscape.
