Stanford men to take preseason golf trip to Scotland


The Stanford men's golf team will trek to Scotland for nearly two weeks of mastering their craft on some of the world's best courses.

Stanford's 29-person travel party will take part in the excursion slated for Sept. 8-17.

"Everyone involved in the program is really excited to take a tour to Scotland, the birthplace of our sport," Director of Men's Golf Conrad Ray said. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime type of trip for our student athletes and the history and culture of Scotland will be special to experience."

Among the courses the Cardinal will play include Crail Golfing Society (Balcomie Links), Carnoustie Golf Links, New Course in St. Andrews, Kingsbarns Golf Links, Cruden Bay Golf Club, Nairn Golf Club, Royal Aberdeen Golf Club and Royal Dornoch Golf Club.

"Many of the courses on our tour have hosted historical and major events, and the camaraderie that our team and donors will be able to build while playing 10 courses in nine days will be invaluable for the future," Ray said. "The travel team at Connoisseur Golf have been first class to work with."

The trip also includes dual matches against the University of St. Andrews and Oregon State.
