Academy House - Golf Breaks

The Banffshire and Moray Coast – one of the greatest, yet undiscovered, stretches of golf courses in the world….. our self catering holiday house provides the perfect destination for your golf holiday.

Duff House Royal Golf ClubWhere else is it possible to be situated within 30 miles of courses which are linked to the following courses and designers… Augusta National, Cypress Point, Royal Melbourne, Burning Tree, Ben Sayers, James Braid, and the incomparable J.H Taylor, to name but a few?

Golf courses along the Moray and Banffshire coast provide an incomparable variety of golfing challenges; from the hickory shaft and ‘guttie’ era provided by courses such as Cullen; to the more modern challenges provided by inland courses such as Duff House Royal – a sister course to Augusta National – home of The Masters.

Moray Golf Club; home to two courses, has played host to the Walker Cup. The Old course was laid out by Old Tom Morris, and the new by Henry Cotton. Other Old Tom Morris include Elgin Golf Club, just ten minutes from Moray.

A stay at our self catering holiday house provides easy access to some of the world’s best yet- to-be rediscovered golfing venues.

It is fair to say that this stretch of coast lays claim to being one of the greatest golfing destinations in the world.

At a rough count, over 20 golf courses are available within a very short distance; each of which provides a unique challenge.
Hamewith provides excellent secure storage for golfing equipment, and invaluable assistance with golf course and travel advice from its owners and family.
