I’ve already written about the genesis of this particular trip so instead of rehashing all of that, I’ll just direct you to this post, entitled How Quickly Things Can Change. I was lucky enough to join seven others for #AuldSod2017, better known as the Trip of a Lifetime, with twelve rounds on nine different Scottish golf courses, spread across an eight day period.
I will be uploading new course profiles from this trip every second Thursday at 10:00am for the next few months, as I continue to keep my promise of providing fresh content on a weekly basis throughout 2019 here at Now on the Tee. The course write-ups will come in the same order that we played them on our trip.
So, without further ado, here is a look at our itinerary from our 2017 trip:

I’ll also write a Postscript and upload that on May 16th, with some discussion on the hotels we stayed in during the trip and any “off course” stuff like restaurants, bars, tourist attractions, etc. I’ll conclude the postscript by sharing details of our follow-up trip, #auldsod2019, which will be taking place in early August 2019 and may prove to be even more exhaustive than our 2017 adventure!
As these profiles are updated to the site, I’ll be sure to link them up above so feel free to use this post as a reference if you’d like.
