Additional Information

 Handicap certificate

We require all members of your group to carry current handicap certificates. Many courses will require handicap certificates before accepting visitors on the course. Meridian Golf Tours Limited will advise you at the time of booking if any of the courses on the tour have a maximum handicap restriction. We accept no responsibility if you are refused play due to an inability to comply with the course's requirements.

Dress code

Appropriate dress should be worn at all times on the course and in the clubhouse. Your travel details and welcome pack will advise the requirements at each course on your tour. Meridian Golf Tours Limited accepts no responsibility if any of the group are refused access to the course or the clubhouse due to inappropriate attire.

Tee-Times

We will make every endeavour to confirm your requested tee-times but courses do reserve the right to alter preferred tee-times. We will always offer you the nearest possible alternative. Most Scottish courses will allow two ball groups if requested, but on some occasions due to a high volume of players you may be requested to pair up with other golfers to play as a four ball.

Playing Conditions

Although the standard of the courses we have selected is generally excellent we are unable to always be aware of when course maintenance may be undertaken. Meridian Golf Tours Limited can therefore not be held responsible for the condition of the golf courses during your tour.
