VisitScotland has launched an online poll to find the nation’s most beloved golf holes from almost 600 courses across Scotland.

The poll, which includes some of the most famous golf courses in the
world, will look to gather views from thousands of golfers worldwide to
find golf holes in Scotland that have #ScotSpirit – a feature of the
national tourism organisation’s Spirit of Scotland campaign.

From a shortlist of 26 courses spanning multiple regions of Scotland,
golfers are being asked to vote for their favourite holes in seven
distinct categories ranging from the best opening hole to the hole with
the best view.

Including renowned holes such as the Postage Stamp at Royal Troon (above) and the Road Hole at St Andrews (below)
to more hidden gems such as the 12th at Hopeman or the sixth at
Lamlash, the poll seeks to find those holes that engender #ScotSpirit
among golfers.

“Golf is one of Scotland’s great gifts to the world and we know that
golfers experience a special feeling when they tee it up in the country
where the game began,” said Malcolm Roughead, chief executive of VisitScotland.

“We call that feeling #ScotSpirit and we’re excited to launch this
poll to find the holes that have the hairs standing up on the back of
golfers’ necks.

“With so many fantastic courses across Scotland, the Home of Golf,
this is no easy decision but we look forward to analysing the results
and to find out which holes truly capture the Spirit of Scotland.”

The poll will run until April 2 with results expected by April 12.
