Great Value for Money in 2009

If you’re thinking it’s too expensive to plan a Scotland golf trip in 2009, think again. Here’s some good news from

With the dollar growing in strength against the pound, US visitors will have more bang for their buck in Scotland. Compared to the 2007 exchange rate of $2 to £1, Scotland is now 25-30% cheaper for US tourists with an exchange rate of $1.40 to £1. Contributing to these extra savings is the recent reduction in VAT (similar to sales tax) from 17.5% to 15% so if you’re planning a trip now is the time to come to Scotland.

And by planning your own golf trip to Scotland (i.e. not paying a premium to a tour operator) you can save an additional 25-30%. What are you waiting for?!
