Scotland has 587 courses . The highest concentrations are around Glasgow (94 courses ) and Edinburgh (67 courses ), since these two cities and their environs account for the bulk of the population. But the other districts still average about 40 courses each.

Golfers will be allowed to play in fourballs, with no restrictions on the number of households represented in the group and so long as proper distancing protocols are observed, from tomorrow.
If you don’t mind paying high season rates, I think that late May and/or early June is the best time to visit Scotland for golf. The courses and hotels aren’t too busy, the days are long, and the courses are in great shape. If you want to take advantage of shoulder season rates, I recommend April .
