"Pure Golf Experience and Links Golf St Andrews partnered to provide my son and me with the most amazing trip imaginable. They scheduled an incredible group of courses, arranged for terrific accommodations in each of the three places we stayed and were really flexible as Covid forced us to reset our plans multiple times. Scotland is the ultimate golfing destination and these guys take all the guesswork out of having the trip of a lifetime."
"A Bucket List Trip with VIP Pampering!! It was truly awesome!
Every aspect of our Scotland package was expertly taken care of by Pure Golf Experience and Links Golf St. Andrews. From the planning of the trip with Rich Leviss, who helped coordinate all aspects with Debi Munro, to the In-Country VIP pampering by Jamie Farmer, our main contact who was with us on many days and ensured we were treated like Kings…. to Nicola Duffy, Finlay Asher and Cameron Knox who helped with some of our daily excursions…. everything with Top Shelf!
Links Golf St. Andrews delivered! We were met immediately at the airport by our Driver Jamie Farmer, as well as the Managing Partner of Links Golf, Mark Rigg. Every employee we interacted with was friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
The hotels and restaurants booked for us were all first class, even accounting for our peculiar allergies and needs of one of our travelers.
Everything was extremely organized and detailed, allowing for great golf and spur of the moment detours, including additional golf.
Links Golf arranged all golf games, we were recognized at each golf course and checked in so that we had no worries other than how well we played. Everyone at Links Golf treated us as special guests and we give them the highest ratings and recommendations possible."

"A tip of the golf hat to Rich Leviss and Pure Golf Experience for setting up and guiding our foursome with sherpa-like precision through five blissful days of golf at St. Andrews (Old Course and New Course), Carnoustie, Kingsbarns and the Balcomie Course at Crail. For all of us, the experience of playing golf in Scotland was as fantastic as anticipated. The accommodations recommended by Rich were superb, as was our driver, Ross, who not only transported us to our appointed rounds but also offered valuable culinary advice. From landing until departure, it was a perfectly run trip that even featured a perfect golf shot — an ace at the par 3, 160-yard third hole at Crail’s Balcomie Course. I recommend a smooth 6-iron for that shot. Thanks again, Rich!"

"In September 2017 I was able to cross off my number one Golf Bucket List trip by traveling to St. Andrews Scotland for seven rounds of glorious links golf. Our foursome enlisted the help of Rich Leviss at Pure Golf Experience because we wanted to make sure that our experience was top-notch. We chose Rich because we knew that he had personally been to St. Andrew’s multiple times and he clearly knows the in’s and out’s of the area. Rich didn’t disappoint us! Everything went smoothly from beginning to end. From ground transportation to tee times, hotel accommodations and restaurant recommendations, everything was seamless. So for that we say, ‘thank you, Rich!’ We had a great trip. We felt like we received the ‘white glove’ treatment the entire trip."
