If you are staying in St. Andrews in Scotland or Killarney in Southwest Ireland and want to play such courses as Royal Troon, Castle Stuart in Scotland or Royal Portrush, Royal County Down in Northern Ireland one day, the logistics of ground transportation would require almost a full day of traveling to reach these courses. Helicopters will negate this problem, bringing even the most distantly located course within an hour or so flying time.
Gryphon Golf Tours works closely with the leading helicopter operators in Scotland, England, and Ireland, making even the wildest of golf dreams, a possibility.
As a service to our clients, Gryphon Golf Tours will be pleased to assist in obtaining an airfare quotation for the trip. Should this service be utilized, the company acts only as an intermediary on the client’s behalf, the transaction being between the client and the third party, including payment of the airfare and any associated costs.
With new, high speed hydrofoil services now connecting Ireland and Scotland, it is sometimes quicker to transfer from one country to the other by sea rather than air. If you are planning a trip combining Ireland and Scotland, we will always find the most efficient way to get you from one country to the other.
